An interactive, rechargeable learning toy developed by a Carmel company is now available at one of the nation’s largest electronic retailers. Best Buy stores are carrying pi lab’s Edwin the Duck, which is a "smart" toy that is motion-activated and connects to a mobile app.
The 2015 Mira Award winner in the Mobile Tech category was created by pi lab co-founder Don Inmon, who worked with educators, musicians and artists to develop the material. Inmon says "we have given this cherished character a name and personality, while embedding innovative technology to offer infinite experiences for your child to learn, play, sing and dream with Edwin."
It involves interactive lessons on colors, shapes and values-focused stories. The toy floats and includes a wireless, waterproof speaker.
