Play-i Raises $1M for Educational Robots

PLAY-I: $1 million in seed funding to Play-i from Google Ventures, Madrona Venture Group, and a group of undisclosed angels, reports AllThingsD. Founded by four Silicon Valley techies, the company aims to build robots to teach programming for children ages 5 to 8. Other than the goal of making this available to consumers for under $100, the company has been mum on details. (In the meantime, the name leaves us with images from I, Robot.)
