Say hello to EMYS™: the lovable social robot who offers a totally new, highly effective way to introduce your little one to a second language in a way that feels just like hanging out with a new best friend!
The Smart Tags, as shown spread out on the table in the photo above, feature images that represent a certain word. EMYS asks children to show him a specific Smart Tag by identifying a word or concept that they already understand in their mother tongue, and then teaches them the corresponding word in the second language, asking them to repeat the word aloud.
This teaching method provides hours of learning and laughter for children through playful interaction with EMYS, as you’ll see in the following video:
EMYS has many more features and capabilities that we are currently working on. One of these is the ability to turn virtually anything into a Smart Tag, by placing one of our special computer chip-embedded stickers onto it, as seen here:
EMYS is specifically designed to address the unique learning preferences of children aged 3 to 9, which is the optimal time to learn a second language. During this phase of life, children’s brains are primed to begin assimilating and acquiring language. However, while children are “sponges” at this age, they need to be taught in a very particular way, leveraging:
We have achieved all of this with EMYS by equipping him with amazing visual perception and an unprecedented ability to interact with the child. He can detect when someone is in front of him, recognize who it is, track your child’s movements, and respond to his or her touch.
