LeapFrog Develops Kids Computer Pen: The Fly

LeapFrog Enterprises has developed a new product which they hope will introduce a whole new genre of computing. The Fly Pentop computer is a talking computerized pen that can translate words into other languages, and help with math and spelling homework.

The product uses special “Fly paper” that kids can write on which translates the writing into audio, in English or different languages. Another neat feature enables children to create interactive calculators that will work by touching the hand written digits and functions. The pen will then read back the answer to the writer.

Someone needs to tell LeapFrog that excessive use of lens flare in Photoshop can lead to blindness!

In all seriousness, the Fly Pentop computer looks like a pretty neat device to help kids learn languages.

Pricing and Availability

The FLY pentop computer will be available in Fall 2005 at a MSRP of around $99. Additional applications are expected to range from $7.99 – $29.99.
