dCode Wundermind

SHORT SUMMARY

Programming has been always synonymous to writing code on a computer, using a screen interface. However, research shows that increased screen time causes detrimental effects on the cognitive and social developments of a child

dCode WunderMind is an educational toy that helps children aged 6 to 9 to learn coding concepts, through a completely screen free  and tactile interface.

By coding the lights and sounds of the ball, they enjoy having fun outdoors while learning to code at the same time.
