Orboot by Playshifu
Orboot is an augmented reality educational globe that will help children get their bearings on where in the world countries are and help them to discover more about animals, cuisines, cultures, inventions, maps, and monuments related to that country. This is information that is sorely lacking in young people’s general knowledge today. While you can Google anything, to come across as smart and knowledgeable in a conversation, a decent general knowledge is important.
Your child will work the globe with an iPad, iPhone, or Android device (see compatibility specs below) and travel the world virtually. A passport, stamp, and flags of the world stickers are supplied so that your child can keep track of their journeys and discoveries as they go. The Orboot app is available in 8 languages. It’s a product that will grow with your child as they explore more than 400 wonders of the world in 3D, learn over 1 000 facts, and explore 6 categories: animals, cuisines, cultures, inventions, maps, and monuments. There is visual storytelling, music, and voice interactions as well as in-app quizzes and challenges. They will even be challenged to solve some of the environmental problems of the world.
