Here’s a fabulous way to use augmented reality (AR) – on a globe! The Shifu Orboot is an educational 10″ globe for kids ages 4-10 that uses the Orboot app (iOS, Android, Kindle) to provide an AR interactive experience. The app provides information on cultures, monuments, inventions, animals, maps and weather for various countries. This globe does NOT have borders or names on it; these are available through the app. The Orboot is compatible with iPad 3 & above, iPad mini 2 & above, iPhone 6 & above; Kindle 8 and above; Android 3GB RAM and above. The Shifu Orboot is available from Amazon for $49.99. This sounds like an awesome gift idea for kids’ birthdays or Christmas!
