Countdown to iPad – Farewell to Poingo (Use Case 43)

Monday 29 March 2010 - Filed under gaps + mobile + Technology

One of the most clever interactive technologies I have encountered can be seen at A year of so ago I had the opportunity to provide my youngest 2 glorious OOH-n-AAH! filled days. We immediately fell for the quirky Poingo charm. So much so that we set out to buy her some of her own books. That’s when the magic started to fade. I soon discovered this singular experience to be truly rare indeed, as only a couple of titles were available.

My educated guess is that the uncommon technical approach is both Poingo’s blessing [translation: fun to use] and their curse [translation: expensive to produce]. Perusing their website today yielded more titles, but still a small selection given how long the product has been on market.

iPad heralds a new day in interactive technology. No special pen needed, just a touch of a child’s finger brings the magic to life. iPad will give my daughter and I both many an OOH-n-AAH! day. However, unlike the Poingo, I expect the river of content to flow and flow.
