iF concept design award 2012

The Alien Eye is a toy that teaches children about such different topics as culture, people, animals and buildings around the world. It’s made up of 2 parts: the observation device (the Alien) and a globe of the world. First, the children take the Alien and look at different places on the globe. The Alien reads the RFID code built into the globe and connects to the internet to search for the corresponding images, which are then displayed on its screen. Voice output provides key information about the image. This is an excellent opportunity for children to learn more about the world’s geography and culture.
