What are the recommended ages for playDXTR?

Officially playDXTR is suitable for kids between 5 years old up to preteen. However, if you ask us we believe that playDXTR is suitable for children of all ages that loves to play (yes Grandpa, that includes you too).

Exactly what sort of information will I receive about my child?

The amount of information you receive will depend on the amount of information you allow us to record.

If you don’t want your child’s data to be collected or if you don’t want to keep track of your child’s development, it’s completely possible. Just opt out in the settings in the application and go back to enjoying the games.

If you do want to get information about your child, we will anonymously record his play sessions on the platform. You will receive information about his progress on our games. They are all designed around different cognitive functions like memory, visuospatial skills, planning, dexterity etc. Your child’s play sessions will give you information about how these cognitive functions are growing in your child.

How does playDXTR help my child?

playDXTR provides a great variety of games, each requiring different cognitive abilities. It will the same time engage children in physical activity, which unfortunately tends to be forgotten in a new World of tablets and apps.

Our games constantly adapt their content to the player’s level. This means that your children will always have to think actively to solve them. We don’t believe in learning through repetition until a child knows something by heart. Our children learn by being active, by being creative, by being challenged in a fun and safe environment.

They simply learn by embracing playing.

Why should I use this?

If you have kids odds are they’re gonna play with something. Blocks, sticks, or maybe rocks. Children play no matter what. Why not make the inevitable play smarter and more insightful for you as a parent? The children will simply go about their playful business as usual, and you (and your child) enjoy the benefits of the information this creates.

Is my child's data safe?

Yes, absolutely. All the data we store about your child is completely anonymous, and we are working closely with experts at the Microsoft Azure Platform to make sure all your data is completely safe.

In May 2018 the EU is implementing new regulation (the General Data Protection Regulation) which strengthens the rights of especially children and underaged. We anticipate to go above and beyond this regulation and always design with privacy in mind.

What will you do with all the data collected?

We will anonymously analyze the data and correlate it to other children on the platform with similar profiles. From this we will build the World's first global database on children’s cognitive development.

Any data you provide will not be sold, leased, or rented to third parties for commercial purposes.

What will the Kubits be able to do?

Answering this question from a technical perspective, each Kubit is able to connect wirelessly to our base station. They are able to detected their own orientation and rotation in 6 axis, as well as being able to detect which face and edge is connected to another Kubit.

The base station then knows which Kubit’s are connected and how they are connected, either face to face or edge to edge. Each kubit is able to change color on each of its six sides in all RGB colours (so basically all the colours of the rainbow!).

The Kubit’s are also used as control units for the games on the tablet. Developers will be able to create their own apps that uses the data coming from the kubits.
