Orboot Augmented Reality Globe Launches Kickstarter

Augmented Reality Globe for children Orboot launches Kickstarter campaign

The Orboot is a 10” globe that can be scanned with a smartphone to access a range of augmented reality (AR) features and it is looking for funding via Kickstarter.

The Orboot globe is designed as an educational tool for children. It can pair with a smartphone to show a wealth of information on various locations, including monuments, food, music, animals and climate. Each globe highlight has it’s own story, which contains basic educational information, such as a story about the Chinese New Year and a girl’s trip to China.

The Orboot team are looking to raise $15,000 (USD) by April 5th 2017. Which, as of writing, they were less than $1000 away from reaching, only three days after the campaign launch.
