Digital age has relegate the good’ol globe to decorative piece. I mean, who the hell need a physical globe when Google Earth is just a few clicks away? But that’s for information hungry grownups. As for kids, learning from Google Earth about the Earth itself won’t be much of a fun. Learning is different from digging for information. Learning is what kids do, and it should be fun, and this is where PlayShifu wants to do with Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe. Even a grown man like me gets excited about a mash up of a physical globe and AR (which is essentially what the Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe is really about).
Orboot includes a physical 10-inch globe and a dedicated app that allows children to explore the world by simply placing the table between themselves and the globe, and voila! Monuments, natural wonders, weather, cuisine, and more, animated where appropriate, pops right on the screen. Along with attractive graphics, kids will get to learn about the object or topic with concise information presented on the display, or take a quiz to test their knowledge. Now, that’s fun learning. It sure beats the boring old globe/books combo, and sure a lot more fun than swiping/poking on a cold device.
The best part about Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe by PlayShifu is, it is totally affordable, well, at least it is when it is still on Kickstarter. For the next 14 days or so, Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe can be yours for $29-55, depending on the number of features you opt for, and since the campaign is over 300 percent funded, the product is a reality which you can expect to see at your doorstep sometime in August 2017.
