As a generation, we parents are sure raising a smarter lot of kids than before! The little minds do not settle for anything less and are intrigued to learn new things. And as we find out, it is never too early to get them introduced to the latest concepts of virtual and augmented reality and STEM-based learning. This week, we at KSP, tell you about this app that brings your child's fun activities on paper to life.
What is Smartivity Edge?
Smartivity Edge is a product of Smartivity- a startup by like-minded IIT professionals who joined hands to make the learning for kids to the next level. They have come up with a range of learning-based and engagement driven activities and puzzles for kids that employ Augmented Reality (AR) and STEM principles.

What's special about Smartivity?
We know how much kids love colouring and playing with puzzles. The Smartivity Edge app brings to life the world they just painted on paper and the puzzle they got right using Augmented Reality. Just colour the sheets, scan them and watch the animal comes to life, and your child have fun playing with it.
Watch this video to know more about the Smartivity AR Enabled colouring sheets:
The colouring kit we tried includes the theme based-colouring sheets, a set of 12 sketch pens and some additional sheets- like what do you want your child to be when they grow up-they can choose the profession, colour the sheet and enjoy some role-play on the app! If you are facing issues with the scan option, make sure you project the screen slightly away from the sheet and wait till you get a green overlay.
As a parent, you would want your child to learn something new in every activity they engage in. The best part about Smartivity is the way they integrate smart learning into fun activities. For a simple activity like colouring, with the app, the child not only enjoys seeing the picture come alive but also learns all about the sound the animal makes, the spelling, and can even have fun watching the animal in action!
The app is free to download, and the activity kits are very reasonably priced (starting from Rs. 249 ) that will guarantee hours of entertainment for your kids. The app is easy to use with simple instructions and the quality of the colouring sheets/puzzles are good.
The app and the activity kits might just be the right start to get your little one all interested in the magical world of augmented reality.
