context

Storyball is a revolutionary and award-winning IoT startup that helps children enjoy technology and outdoor play while reducing screen time to the minimum.

The smart toy keeps kids busy and active through games that require physical effort and movements; The toy's engagement is driven by interactive audio stories, fun quizzes, and challenges that are carefully designed to make children want to leave their devices away and explore the world around them with their favorite characters.

the challenge

The smart Storyball with changeable skins transforms itself into a companion for kids giving them the chance to play, learn, and exercise in a fun way. In 2018, when we partnered-up, the Android application was already launched, and our mission was to grow the product and create an iOS app as well.

the solution

The Storyball team met our experts, discussed all the needs and expectations, and in just a few months, we developed a smooth and successful iOS app connected to the toy via Bluetooth, while the top-secret game logic implementation was done by Storyball’s CTO, Giora Vered as well as the RESTful API integration. In the end, we managed to create together a screenless IoT game for kids activated by an iOS app.

The Bluetooth connection is made to easily share content through the app, making this smart toy easy to use by parents both online and offline and to organize or track children's activity.
