YOLO, a Robot for Creativity: A Co-Design Study with Children


Abstract This paper describes the design and development of YOLO, a social robot aimed at boosting creativity in children. Creativity is one of the most sought-after competencies as we move from industrialized economies, in which standardized knowledge was imperative, to creative economies, where the ability to innovate is crucial for the workforce. YOLO is a robot to be used by children as a tool to boost new ideas and stimulate their creativity. This paper describes how established educational strategies that enhance creativity were combined with co-designing with children as informants to reach the prototype design of the robot.
