Egger – New AR Based Interactive Learning Projector for Kids
A tech company from Hong Kong named Molio unveiled a new interactive projector with AR capability which is designed for kids. Named Egger, the projector is first of its kind device to be unveiled for kids.
While we often find kids taking a deeper interest in smartphones, tablets, and hand-held devices than even watching TV, an interactive device allowing them to watch their favorite things on big screen will certainly add value to their education and make them happy.
The projector has been built keeping all the typical considerations for children in mind. For instance, when a kid will look at the projector from a close distance it will be turned off automatically.
Beautiful Eye Candy Design
The egg shaped Egger looks really cute and in every way it gives a versatile smart feel for the little ones. The smart LED projector only measures 237mm in height and 155mm in diameter and comes with a variety of optional colors. There are integrated feet underneath to enable the egg-shaped device to stand steadily on a surface. Egger is also designed for easy handling by kids.
This is a ‘Do More’ Instrument for Kids
Obviously, kids often get stressed by staring at small screens of handheld devices for hours on end and moreover, it can be problematic for their eyes as well. Well, with Egger the kids can see the characters and lessons in large sizes on a bigger screen. Moreover, the interactive apps loaded in the Egger allow them to play with onscreen objects and elements and thus can help building their cognitive learning skills. There are several apps that help your kids creating lively and moving images through the projection.
Egger is turned on by pressing the power button on the top and after turning on it shows a beautiful cartoon character design that can further be tweaked by the kids with their pens.
