The last two years have transformed how kids interact with tech. Average daily screen time among children ages 4 to 15 was twice as high in May 2020 as in May 2019. But experts agree that screen time isn’t all bad — and interaction is one way to reduce its potential negative effects.
If you’re looking for a healthy tech experience for your kid, then it’s time to try Dance Master. Available on Miko 3, the app encourages your kid to get moving alongside their enthusiastic little robot friend. Besides boosting your child’s flexibility and promoting good neurological health, dancing also releases feel-good endorphins. And did we mention that it’s just plain fun?
Follow the steps below to get your kid moving with Miko’s Dance Master app.
What it is
Think of Dance Master as your own at-home dance party! Your child can either dance along with one of Miko’s preset routines or play their own music and have Miko 3 create choreography to match. (If you’re thinking that sounds pretty fun, then you’re right!)
How it works
Dance Master uses AI to provide tons of interaction between Miko and your child. For the best experience, follow these simple steps before launching Dance Master:
How to get started
After launching the app in the Talents tab, you’ll see two presets: “Let’s Groove” and “My Mixtape.” When you tap “Let’s Groove,” Miko will start dancing to the beat of any music you play out loud. If you prefer to see Miko perform one of its favorite dances, tap one of the icons under “My Mixtape;” there are 12 in all! Then, encourage your child to dance along as Miko gets moving.
