Melbits POD - Tech Toy Benefits

HOW MELBITS POD WORKS

You will need to bring your vpets out using the real world 

1. Temperature, Light and Motion sensors on the POD invite you to get creative to evolve and create Melbits.

2. Take the POD everywhere and use your surroundings to evolve your virtual pets!  

3. Melbits are living creatures: they feed, they grow and they get sick. So take good care of them!

POSITIVE DIGITAL HABITS

We think that video games are great. But we want to build a physical layer on top of them that brings back the joy of playing in the physical space therefore introducing screen time balance as part of the game.

Melbits POD is highly interactive and invites to share the screen with parents and other kids, and that’s the basis of building positive digital habits for the future.

Melbits POD is an experience for all ages. For kids it helps balancing screen time while becoming physically active in a world of imagination.

 

A new take on STREAM Toys focusing on soft skills: Creative Problem Solving, Imaginative Learning and Empathy Development. The POD is designed to bring back the joy of playing in/with your surroundings, creating a positive relationship with technology.

SHARE THE EXPERIENCE

In a world in which screens often separate us from each other we wanted to use screens as portals; Portals to encourage you to play in the real world, with the sun on your face and away from the couch. 

 

Melbits POD is an electronic toy that creates a flow between worlds, a seamless experience, and encourages to play using your imagination.
