My $.02s…

 

The Polyblox toy founder, Laresa Tapia, has a deep passion for helping children learn that really shines through. It’s great to see her making such positive strides in her business and learning more about the difference their company is making.

I was very pleased to see that my friends at Leap with Alice have partnered with her to integrate an augmented reality component to the blocks.

Integrating digital experiences (augmented reality) with physical objects, like Polyblox, adds a whole dimension and realm of possibilities that can make learning much more fun and also lead to deeper comprehension.

Imagine scanning a block of an animal and having that animal appear through the block then being able to learn all about it. Very cool technology!
If you’d like to learn more about Leap with Alice, the co-founders recently joined us on our Orlando Entrepreneurs Podcast.

I look forward to seeing the future of both Polyblox and Leap with Alice.
