Challenge

Shape Robotics is the creator of Fable, a modular robotics set that students can use to create their own robots in minutes using interactive blocks or a Python API.

Ciklum was asked to develop an iPad app and a new UX/UI design that would align with the Google Blockly framework.

Solution

Initially, Ciklum built a prototype iOS app to validate the idea and test it with customers. Xamarin was used for technology because of its cross-functionality and scalability. As the solution evolved an Android app was also developed.

Shape Robotics then decided to redesign the desktop application interface as well. The new interface had to be clear, user-friendly and suited for young learners.
An upcoming funding round made time limited.

Deliverables
  • New app for iOS and Android with smooth onboarding and intuitive interactions
  • Fresh intuitive redesign of desktop application, striking a balance between playfulness, simplicity and utility

The style for the interface became playful and enjoyable for students of different ages and matched the robotics theme. It also perfectly fits with the Google Blockly framework that was used to build the app.

The user-centered approach was what Ciklum brought to Shape Robotics, and this approach helped us make the final design intuitive and clear
