The Magic Box is an interactive floor projection device developed to make learning more fun for preschoolers.
The Magic Box is an innovative interactive floor that makes learning more engaging for children in kindergartens and first and second grades of primary schools. The devices teaches kids to use modern technologies and to cooperate with others in their usual play area, right on the floor. It consists of an interactive projector, a computer with Wi-Fi and sound, a wireless keyboard and mouse, a resistant projection surface, and protective packaging. The projection surface is soft and comfortable, and it consists of puzzle pieces that kids can have fun assembling before they begin to play.
The educational software available with Magic Box was developed for children in kindergartens, but some of the tools available with it can also come in handy at public nurseries and elementary schools. Kids can play the educational games to learn basic math and English vocabulary while developing social and teamwork skills. The interactive projection device can also be used in spas and therapeutic facilities to immerse children in a variety of educational games.
Magic Box is very easy to transport and use. It only needs to be plugged into a socket to transform any floor into a immersive world of games designed for preschoolers. The content can also be projected on walls to engage kids with large images and colourful content.
The Magic Box was developed by Projektmedia Ltd, a Czech company that specialises in creating presentation technology and mobile, interactive solutions for education in nurseries and primary schools. The device was awarded the 1st place Grand Prix at the exhibition For Toys in Prague in October 2013 and was the Czech Innovation Winner in late February 2015. It was also one of the innovative solutions showcased at the Bett Show 2015, held in London in January, where Projektmedia introduced the prototype for the new Magic Box design and received a lot of positive attention from educators and school administrators.
