Brief description of the product/ technology:
Autistic kids and kids with lower IQ have weaker eye-hand coordination. They respond better to signs, lights, colors etc. The motto of conceptualizing “Electronic Learning Tool” is to design a board which consists of impressions of different shapes, animals, boards, alphabets, numbers e .t.c which exactly fits into the board. When a particular block is placed in its allotted slot, the name of the shape or the animal is spelled out. Inserting the block in the right place lights up all the green LEDs and says “Congrats”. If somehow wrong block is placed then all the red LEDs glow and “Sorry!!!Try again” is spelled out. There is an option of recording a new voice/phrase whenever necessary.
This can be fun while learning.
