Have you ever seen a NFC chip equipped toy?
German start-up Klang2 (pronounced Klangquadrat) is introducing a modern take on traditional memory games with wooden sound squares equipped with NFC chips that can be used with a smartphone and a companion app. The game challenges players to put their minds to work by matching music clips, notes and songs, as well as animal sounds and place names. Thanks to the simplicity of the game, there's the potential for hundreds of different variations of the game to be played.
As well as offering entertainment and a fun way for people to put their memory to the test, Klang2 helps players develop a variety of skills, including concentration, auditory perception and awareness, plus it helps to strengthen the relationship between auditory and spatial learning.
Fans of traditional memory games such as Pairs can now play sound-based versions of it using their NFC-enabled smartphone, an app and a set of 20 wooden sound squares equipped with NFC chips.
The technology enables players “to play hundreds of different games”, the developers say, adding that the game also has educational benefits, such as improving concentration, raising awareness of auditory perception and connecting auditory and spatial learning.
The company is producing new versions of the game which will be made available through the app.
