Our Mission  

As part of our endeavor to motivate young students to stay in school and have fun learning, we have created Smart Finger Sleeve™, Smart Finger Puppets™, and Smart Wheel of Wisdom aka Smart WOW™. Naturally young students have vast potential of energy and brain power. Both teachers and parents can utilize these motivational learning tools to tap into the depths of these young minds to nurture their fullest potential. Our goal is to save lives, one child at a time through education.  



Smart Finger Puppet™ is a fun, interactive, and motivational learning tool that brings out the genius, right at your children’s fingertip. They come to life as characters that portray different personalities or different subjects across all cultures. 

 Fun, interactive, and motivational 

• Works as a stylus with all touchscreen devices 

Keeps your touchscreen device clean 

Turns any gloves into touchscreen gloves


Meet our Smart Finger Puppets

We have initially created five characters of Smart Finger Puppets:

(1) Albert Einstein – a scientist to  motivate young students to learn Science. 

(2) Isaac Newton – a mathematician to encourage students to learn Mathematics.  

(3) Hans Christian Andersen - a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales that inspire students about the importance of Reading. 

(4) Pavlov's dog- Pavlov's dog is a classical conditioning experiment used by famous Russian physiologist, Ivan Pavlov, to learn the concept of conditioned reflex when examining the rates of salivations among dogs. Pavlov had learned that when a bell was rung in subsequent time with food being presented to the dog in consecutive sequences, the dog will initially salivate when the food is presented. The dog will later come to associate the ringing of the bell with the presentation of the food and salivate upon the ringing of the bell. Young students can utilize this Smart Finger Puppet to explore the scientific study of function in living systems.

(5) Schrödinger's cat - a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics applied to everyday objects, resulting in a contradiction with common sense. Students can expand their imagination using this Smart Finger Puppet.


Smart Finger Sleeve™ can be embellished or customized in any desirable design. They can be used for a variety of applications as a stylus with all touchscreen devices for a variety of purposes. They prevent oils, grease, or dirt from bare hands or fingers from contaminating your touchscreen devices. Transmission of germs or diseases can also be prevented with Smart Finger Sleeve. They  may be worn over any type of glove  that can turn them into touchscreen gloves.


Smart Wheel of Wisdom aka Smart WOW™ is a versatile, customizable, and effective motivational tool that makes learning any subject fun. It gives you the freedom to create any fun educational game you want as It can be used at schools, restaurants, hotels, businesses, and by private households. Smart WOW is a spinning wheel that accommodates twelve removable pegs where each peg stand can be used to display, hold, and store Smart Finger Puppets.


Rewards


theUltimateABC's APP

We have developed a motivational interactive learning App, theUltimateABCs,  with Smart Finger Puppets. This allows kids to use the Smart Finger Puppets as a stylus to navigate through their touchscreen device, practice saying what they feel through the finger puppet, and release their emotions in a healthy way all at the same time. Young children can now have the opportunity to play and be entertained on their own as they express their feelings by experimenting with different voices and characters.

Risks and challenges 


After our project is successfully funded, our biggest challenge will be mass production. However, we have been fortunate enough to partner with several toy manufacturers. Our goal is to manufacture as many Smart Finger Puppets and Smart Finger Sleeves as possible for the millions of young students in the world. We feel confident we can accomplish this goal because we strongly believe children are our future.
