Frequently Asked Questions

Some frequently asked questions about Chatterbox

What is Chatterbox?

Chatterbox is a build-it-yourself, program-it-yourself smart speaker that teaches kids how to program the computers of the future: the voice-based AI assistant.

What ages is Chatterbox suitable for?

The recommended minimum age to use Chatterbox is 7 years old with help from parents. Chatterbox's complexity grows with kids so there is no maximum recommended age.

How does Chatterbox work?

Think of Chatterbox like a “smart” assistant that doesn't know it's smart yet. Chatterbox's abilities grow as kids learn to create new voice interactions using more advanced skills. Along the way, kids learn critical thinking skills, empathy and clear communication.

Can you really teach kids about artificial intelligence?

Absolutely! Our youngest student that is making skills is currently 6 years old, while we have kids as young as 2 years old using special Chatterbox skills created by parents.

What is screen-free computing?

We believe that there's just too much technology these days. Too many screens, too many games and way too many distractions, without REAL, TANGIBLE learning outcomes and benefits that kids need. That's why Chatterbox is not dependent on a screen for everyday use.

What is socially conscious technology?

Socially conscious technology is technology that is respectful of children's attention and privacy. That's why we made Chatterbox to be screen-free computing, real world learning, and privacy focused and safe for kids. Chatterbox only listens when you press the listen button, doesn't contain any advertising and doesn't harvest personal data.

Is Chatterbox safe for kids?

You bet! Chatterbox respects privacy by only listening when you push the "listen" button, there is no personal data harvesting like Amazon Echo or Google Assistant, and we don't share information for any purpose period. If you have questions, chat us up at
