This Cute Wearable Device Teaches Kids How To Code
A wearable to encourage young tinkerers to come up with their own creative applications
Technology Will Save Us, a startup educating kids about coding, has launched a Kickstarter for a wearable that kids will build and program. The DIY kit called the Mover Kit is the first active wearable that children can make and code on their own.
The hardware is easy to assemble and the kit comes with a strap which makes it easy to wear anywhere. It’s also possible to fix the wearable to objects like bicycles.
The device has 8 RGB LEDs, a motion sensor, a compass and an accelerometer. It’s powered by rechargeable batteries and charges through a USB cable. To add more functionality to it, kids can choose to make their own programs which the device could run.
