Have you heard of ROBLOX? I hadn’t either till I just checked out this video. It looks really cool, sort of like Minecraft, but you can do SO much more.
Watch this video to learn more about it.
ROBLOX is an online virtual playground and workshop — where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn. It’s unique in that practically everything in this infinite playground is designed and constructed by individual members of the ROBLOX community.
Each player starts by choosing an avatar and giving it an identity. They can then explore ROBLOX — interacting with others by chatting, playing games, or collaborating on creative projects.
Each player is also given their own piece of undeveloped real estate along with a virtual toolbox with which to design and build anything desired — be it a navigable skyscraper, a working helicopter, a giant pinball machine, a multiplayer “Capture the Flag” game or some other, yet-to-be-dreamed-up object or activity.
By participating and by building cool stuff, ROBLOX members can earn specialty badges as well as ROBLOX dollars (“ROBUX”). In turn, they can shop the online catalog to purchase avatar clothing and accessories as well as premium building materials, interactive components, and working mechanisms.
Cool, right? Go here to learn more and sign up to try it out.
