Elemental Path is set to launch an innovative addition to its range of interactive toys for children called CogniToys, with ‘Scout’ now live on Kickstarter.
CogniToys are powered by a proprietary custom AI children’s voice that’s been dubbed the Friendgine. This allows children to speak to and learn from the toy as they play, with the Scout CogniToy designed to teach them about their favorite subjects. Additionally, Scout can offer information on animals, sports, foods, and other topics that children might have an interest in. As the toy answers their questions, it helps to fuel their knowledge and inspire creativity. As Elemental Path explains, "Scout's mission is to teach, entertain, and inspire kids around the world."
Scouts upgraded hardware and electronics really make it stand out from other interactive toys on the market. This includes its touch sensors, smart LEDs, accelerometer, and dual-band compatibility that helps it to better interpret its surroundings. To ensure that interactions are always child-friendly and appropriate, the content included in the system is vetted by children's experts, pulling from a curated selection that is updated on a weekly basis. With these features, along with its impressive AI system, Scout grows with children as they learn, adapting to the individual and creating a personalized experience.
With Scout, children gain access to an immersive and educational tool that grows with them. Not only that, but it functions without the screens that many parents aim to distance their children from. With CogniToys awarded as the Time Magazine Best Invention of the Year, and boasting the Best Use of AI in Education, Scout is the next step to evolving the already future-facing range.
