Grasshopper

Grasshopper is an “appcessory” that interacts with iPad games to get kids moving and using their bodies instead of their thumbs.

It provides a new active, social, creative and educational way to interact with devices. Grasshopper consists of four large silicone tiles that act as giant buttons that connect wirelessly to an iPad or tablet. They transform the tablet into a play area with boundless gameplay, so that the world becomes the console.
