Floating Alphabets / alphabetic learning devices

Floating Alphabets
Floating Alphabets

This design is developed to provide innovative interfaces for children’s vocabulary learning. The created objects could be played in water, suggest various alphabet arrangements, and offer vocabulary recognition and feedbacks visibly and audibly for children when they are taking bath. The magnetic connection parts for each item are used for alphabetic matching and spelling. Besides, RFID and AI technologies are applied to recognize and pronounce the spelled letters. When the letter pronunciation is finished, the magnetic parts will provide opposite forces to separate each item for next time alphabetic matching.
