Elemental Path Launches Indiegogo Campaign for STEMosaur

STEMosaur_bElemental Path launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to support its newest product in the CogniToys family, STEMosaur. The STEMosaur is a customizable toy that doubles as a learning companion for children, with a more hands-on approach featuring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) elements, as well as lessons in coding. The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $25,000 in 45 days.

STEMosaur has a more hands-on approach, allowing kids to construct their new dino with a variety of building pieces before bringing it to life. Once constructed, the Wi-Fi enabled STEMosaur is immediately capable of holding conversation, telling jokes, playing games, and more. The product uses Elemental Path’s own Friendgine technology, a cloud-based artificial intelligence software platform that allows the smart toy to hold intelligent conversation with kids and share answers to questions in real time.
