LeapFrog’s Fly Pen

November 16th, 2005 · No Comments

Wired writes: “In technical terms, Marggraff’s Fly pen is an even greater achievement than his LeapPad. Think of it as a powerful PDA sucked into the stylus alone. Marggraff views the $99 pen, which hits stores this fall in time for the Christmas season, as an ideal tool for teaching the 8- to 14-year-old tween market everything from algebra to Spanish. It’s so impressive that Disney, Upper Deck, and Warner Bros. have already signed on to develop games for the device. And Marggraff envisions still more uses for the Fly: as a group-computing device for businesses, for example, or a screenless PDA. He plans to eventually open its architecture to encourage broader development.”
