Code Lab is based on Scratch
Cozmo’s Code Lab is based on Scratch, a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. You can find more information at the Scratch website. [scratch.mit.edu]
Cozmo’s Code Lab is available in the Cozmo app version 1.6 or later. While the Cozmo app minimally requires Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), Code Lab itself requires Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later or Fire OS 5.0 or later. Code Lab is not recommended for use with the original iPad mini or the the iPod touch (5th Generation or earlier) devices.
Some Additional Notes
After updating to Cozmo 2.1.0, Code Lab projects that you previously created are now Sandbox projects.
You can continue to use your Sandbox projects, create new ones from scratch, or rename Sample Projects as Remixes to jump start your projects.
Please note that while you can now use Remixes and rename Sandbox projects, they are only stored in the Cozmo app itself. If you remove the Cozmo app's data or uninstall the Cozmo app, your saved Sandbox Projects will be lost and cannot be recovered.
For more information about Sandbox Mode, please click here.
Constructor Mode is an all new way to take your coding skills to the next level. For more details on what Constructor Mode has to offer and how it compares to Sandbox Mode, please visit the new Constructor Mode page.
Just like Sandbox Mode, Constructor Mode comes with some amazing Sample Projects from which you can create Remixes to jump start your projects. Constructor Mode adds the ability to save your projects to Google Drive and submit them to Anki for a chance to be featured on Anki's site.
To start using Google Drive with your Constructor projects, download the Google Drive app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play store. For more details about using Google Drive with Constructor Mode, please take a look at our Code Lab FAQ.
For Kindles (which do not support Google Drive), you can use email to backup your Constructor projects. Please take a look at our Code Lab FAQ.
Google Drive and email are each great ways to make copies of your Constructor projects just in case you have to reinstall the Cozmo app or if you want to move them to another device. Making copies just in case or to save your progress with a particular Constructor project is always a good idea.
If you’d like Anki to consider featuring your Constructor projects, please visit go.anki.com/submission. You’ll need to create or login with your existing Anki Account (you might have created one when you purchased Cozmo from Anki). For details about an Anki Account, please visit here.
For a more advanced programming experience with Cozmo, please take a look at the Cozmo SDK.
