  • Can Winky be used for teenagers up to 15 or 16 years old?

    An "expert" mode is planned in Winky Lab that will allow older children to program with classic programming languages (for example, Python, C #, etc.).
    That mode will be available in 2020, along with Winky-to-Winky that will allow you to have gaming experiences with multiple robots. We are also planning workshops with teenagers to evaluate our steps to follow and know their interest.

  • Will the Android version of Winky App be available outside of the Google Play Store?

  • Does Winky preserve my privacy?

    Winky has no camera and is therefore unable to record video. The only thing it can record is sound sequences, with the microphones. The sound data never leaves Winky, and only stored internally for the duration of the game. Apart for anonymous maintenance data, Winky never transmits anything to Winky cloud servers. Those servers are located in France.
