Learn, Play & Innovate Platform for New Age Kids
When today’s kids are as smart as they are, their games need to keep up. Enter Plezmo. A play & learn platform, designed to empower kids to bring their innovative ideas to life. Plezmo is a platform of intelligent wireless devices and easy-to-use coding apps designed to enable children to learn, play and innovate using technology.
Starting with a proof of concept, we were roped in to design a platform of modules & accessories that would lend itself to a range of intelligent, wireless devices for IOT based toys. By providing children with the tools to craft their own smart creations, Plezmo would empower kids to learn, imagine and play using their minds and hands.
Watching children play, we worked on designing the elements for Plezmo, which were intelligent, secure and child-safe. In-order to be compatible with children play habit; the blocks were made small, lightweight and wireless, with a long battery life. Each Plezmo element performs a distinct input or output function such as sound, sensing movement, gestures, proximity, displays colour and activates lights, allowing control through buttons & knobs. Enhancing the Plezmo experience and to engage children, we designed a set of accessories which would make the elements compatible with Lego and other building blocks.
Plezmo avoids heavy electronics, circuits or boring programming language to be mastered. Kids learn to understand use of sensors as well as planning & reasoning. An easy drag-and-drop visual interface enables kids to code the logic and connect Plezmo elements to the application.
Plezmo is currently being deployed to be played by children in schools and will soon be available for sale in the retail market.
