CREATION ENGINE THAT BRINGS IDEAS TO LIFE

What if students could bring their ideas to life by just saying them out loud? Using the Moatboat app for iOS, students speak, and the app does what they say. Students can give characters things to do with more than 1,000 objects and actions across 15 unique environments. Using simple sentences, they can add objects and apply actions. For example, they can say, “I need horse” to add a horse into their world. Then they can give the horse something to do by saying, “Horse eat grass” or “Horse jump over fence.” Everything they add becomes part of a working system. By layering multiple objects and actions, they can keep increasing the complexity of their creation. Using the augmented reality (AR) version of Moatboat, students can place their creations onto a real-world table and invite others to join them in a shared experience. In virtual reality (VR), they can stream their experience to a television so others in the room can participate. Cost: Free
