“La Bit-kun” is a mascot robot for “Bit World,” a participatory educational program on NHK E-Television*.
Children can contribute to the program by using a smartphone/computer app to submit their ideas in response to themed questions. La Bit-kun appears in the “Bit Robo Corporation” segment of the show. It runs a search of submitted ideas for robots and introduces them to the audience.
Yukai Engineering helped design and manufacture la Bit-kun’s hardware and develop the app.
