[INQ. NO. 1909C36] AniBlock is a smart toy into which a ‘block puzzle,’ a game using 11 different shapes of blocks to complete a given pattern, is combined with AR (Augmented Reality). If a pattern is photographed by a dedicated application, virtual blocks created by AR clearly show where to place real blocks.
AniBlock consists of 11 polyomino shapes. A polyomino is a polygon first used by Dr. Solomon W. Golomb at Harvard University during his math lecture. The pentomino puzzle in ancient Rome and the pubic game of Tetris fall in the same category. AniBlock utilizes such shapes
to suggest various ways of solving patterns. Through this process, logical thinking, space perception and concentration can be enhanced.
The most differentiated feature of this product compared with others is that it shows various expendabilities thanks to the use of a smartphone as it is best designed for computer vision technology to be applied.
As it was concerned that the play culture of kids is being narrowed down to smartphones, Pacoware Inc., established in 2017, endeavors to pave the way not only for physical and cognitive development through AniBlock connected with smart devices and traditionally-played physical toys for education purposes, while still carrying on the merits of existing physical toys played with for education purposes ─ but also for computational thinking development to communicate with the digital world.
AniBlock is currently exporting online and offline to Taiwan and the USA. Its safety has been certified by acquiring KC in Korea as well as CCC in China, CE in Europe and CPC in the USA. Its exports are expected to expand further to various countries.
Pacoware is also keen on developing new products targeting the global market for continued export and sales expansion. The company is planning to release and launch new products through license agreements of popular TV programs such as The Octonauts, Pinkfong, and Pucca, and launched AniBlock Edu Collection, educational content to learn Korean, English and numbers easily. The new AniBlock smartphone application can be downloaded via the Google Play and the Apple App Store, and it is available in nine languages, including English.
