How Does indi Work?

indi Screenless learning.

Screenless Coding

With indi’s onboard color sensor, young learners can communicate instructions to indi by placing color tiles on the floor that tell it what to do and where to go (and how fast!).

Connected coding

Once kids have mastered screenless programming, they can learn basic block coding concepts in the free Sphero Edu Jr app by reconfiguring how indi reacts to each color: adding new movements, lights, sounds, and even celebrations!

Getting Started

indi is ready to program right out of the box—no setup or device required.
