Kinoo is a kinetic, video-chat-based, play-and-learn system that teaches kids academic and life skills by connecting generations of family members through novel, interactive physical games, and activities. The platform serves as a groundbreaking tool for fostering child development while nurturing precious relationships with distant older loved ones. It allows for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, as well as any family and friends to connect with the kids in their lives to build relationships, play, and learn together, enhancing the way family members connect across long distances. Kinoo's patented technology, accessed via an iOS app and a patented AR-enabled Wand, allows remote users to play collaboratively in shared, game-based learning activities.
Kinoo games are structured to help relatives coach and teach young loved ones essential academic and life skills, including literacy, numeracy, and social skills – ultimately turning standard video chat sessions into exciting, physically-engaging, educational moments. The wireless, rechargeable, motion-sensing, handheld wand makes Kinoo completely unique in the market. The Kinoo wand adds physical play, transformative imagination, and embodied learning into the mix, allowing the app to leverage augmented reality and interpretive motion to enhance the experience beyond the touch screen.
The activities available on Kinoo stimulate the growing minds of young users, gamifying developmental and cognitive lessons with educational activities and teachable conversation prompts. These prompts discreetly guide older loved ones to ask questions and offer comments at key, learning "light bulb" moments and rewards them with a fun and purpose-filled role to play. The Kinoo Wand further enhances the user experience through interpretive motions tied to the gameplay, including collaborative drawing, reading, writing, building, fishing, cooking, sculpting, and more, associated with family bonding, learning, and fun. These facets of Kinoo’s offerings not only hone children’s developing creativity but enforce a holistic, experiential, and active approach to childhood development and learning.
Kinoo was founded by a team of technology, child research, and health tech experts, including Jim Marggraff, creator of the transformational, award-winning LeapPad Learning System.
