The Gameball by Play Impossible connects to an app featuring interactive games

Startup Play Impossible has designed a connected ball that offers an enhanced active play experience for kids in the hope of tearing them away from videogames and social media. The 5-inch inflatable Gameball is packed with electronics including sensors, a microcontroller, Bluetooth radio, and an ultracapacitor. It is made of high-quality microfiber and connects to an accompanying app featuring a number of free interactive games and more available to purchase.

Developed for children aged 5-15, the Gameball has a unique gesture-based interface for controlling the app from a distance, with a 100-meter range and real-time updates. The games on offer incorporate movement, hand-eye coordination, and agility, with different levels, achievements and shareable moments. The app records play and highlight videos, which can be quickly published to social networks.
