About the games
The games are based on generic game mechanics, which can be used for the different school subjects and grades. The target group of the games is children between 5-10 years.
Libry Play Floor™ uses a projector to project the game on a large mat, where the children jump and step on. Furthermore, Kinect technology is used, which means that Play Floor follows the children’s movements, what they step on, and responds according to game rules. In this way, the children solely can use the body and no joystick or anything to interact with the games.
Play is the beginning of knowledge
