Meet the FUZEBOX: an interesting educational platform that makes it easy to get children familiar with coding, electronics, and technology. It offers WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity, so you can use it with smartphones, tablets, and computers.
The FUZEBOX has various sensors, such as light, pressure, humidity, and IR sensors, so you can use it to build a weather station, TV controller, security system, and and other fun solutions. To get started, simply load FUZEBASIC on your computer, connect the smart box to your computer, and you are set. This project is getting funded on Kickstarter at this time.
