Kai’s Clan Smart City Mat
Kai’s Clan Smart City mat, combined with its mixed reality AR, VR, and 3D lessons, gives students an understanding of what future impacts smart cities will have on our lives.
Smart cities need smart people. Included with this mat are 3D, AR, and VR content that asks “what will be the impact of future cities on the people that live in them?” Use sensors, IoT, and creative problem-solving! Includes ‘on the mat’ and ‘outside’ classroom activities.
Kai’s Clan is a platform where the physical and the virtual worlds merge to become an interactive learning playground, with the goal to nurture an interest in coding in children. With the Kai’s Clan Starter Pack, students can code their robots to navigate the mat in real-time, wherever they are in the world. Through designing their own robot avatars and environments a fusion of the real world and virtual world come to life. Kai’s Clan breaks the traditional geographical barriers to bring kids from around the world together and allows them to solve challenges in exciting new ways. Through design, coding, and collaboration students can see their code come to life in augmented and virtual reality. You may be sitting in a Mars Rover driving around Mars, in a forklift in a warehouse, or in a helicopter flying over a busy metropolis. You can interact with all the other robots and objects in your environment in a true multiplayer gaming experience.
Kai’s Clan Smart City Mat is designed for classroom use and is easy to clean, durable, and folds away neatly without creasing.
Included with this mat is a matching virtual smart city environment that you can view in either:
- 3D with your Chrome, Safari, or Edge browser
