About us

The interactive floor called the “Magic Carpet” is the answer to the needs of modern education. The “Magic Carpet” is an entirely Polish product created by qualified Funtronic employees, which changes the way of teaching around the world and is appreciated by teachers as well as pupils and their parents. The “Magic Carpet” is a motion-sensitive projector that displays multimedia games on the floor or table, operated by body movements. The operation of the device is extremely simple and very intuitive, which is why it is used by schools, kindergartens and even nurseries or day care centres. On the one hand, it is an innovative educational tool and, on the other hand, an intelligent form of entertainment that children can use, for example, during breaks between classes. Thanks to the applications installed on the device, children can learn the basics of foreign languages, logical thinking, mathematics, coding, geography or history in a friendly way, while having fun at the same time.

 

 

Funtronic, the manufacturer of the “Magic Carpet”, was established in 2014 and was initially a garage start-up employing three people. Thanks to financial support from the European Union, the project quickly became a thriving company. Currently Funtronic sells its device in most European countries, but also in the US, Arab countries and South Africa. The company is always looking for new distributors and entering new markets. In the near future, it plans to start operations in Australia, Canada and Portugal.

 

 

The “Magic Carpet” has been recognised not only by teachers, but also by the technological industry. In 2018, Funtronic was listed among the 10 most promising start-ups from Central and Eastern Europe according to the Bridge to MassChallenge ranking. Recently, the company was qualified for the semi-finals of the Global Edtech Startup Awards 2018. Funtronic cooperates with international communities linked to education, technology and start-ups, the company has also joined the Start Alliance start-up business network. Thanks to cooperation with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, in 2020 the “Magic Carpet” will be presented at the Polish national stand during the EXPO fair in Dubai.

I Assembly

1. What conditions should the room meet in order for the device to work properly?
The main advantage of the Magic Carpet is that it is suitable for most rooms. However, there are 2 factors that influence the quality of the displayed image and playability of games:  - suitable base - preferably homogeneous, matt, smooth, anti-reflective surface (can be carpet, parquet, concrete) - appropriate light level in the room - sunlight should be limited in the room - the darker the room the brighter (clearer) the image.
2. What is the size of the displayed image?
Dimensions the displayed image depends on the height on which the device was mounted. The image is displayed in a 4:3 format and its longer edge is equal to the distance between the front of the device and the floor/table.
3. What is the offset of the image displayed in relation to the mounted device?
The image is displayed in a 4:3 format and the offset is shown in the image below: 
4. The displayed the image is blurred. How can I sharpen the image?
During the production of Magic Carpet we ensure that each device is properly configured in terms of image sharpness. However, there are cases, for example because of transport or atypical mounting height, that the device may need to be reconfigured to improve image sharpness. This process involves adjusting the projector lens. Grab the lens ring with your fingers and gently turn left/right until the image is sharpened. Important! Do not press the lens - this may reduce the size of the displayed image, and do not touch the lens directly with your fingers.
5. How to connect the device to the Internet?
The Magic Carpet can be connected to the Internet using an Ethernet cable or a network adapter connected via a USB port (WiFi Router included in the set). To properly configure the network, go to the settings menu (mode button on the remote control), and then in the “network” option configure the settings accordingly. For more information, please refer to the user manual (link).

II Use

1. What does the flashing red light mean?
The red LED (between the buttons) has three modes:  - LED on (continuous light) - it means that the device is in standby mode (connected to the power supply, turned off)  - LED flashing (pulsating light) - this mode occurs during the process of switching on the device - all components are started up properly (this process usually takes about 1 minute) and when the device is being switched off.  - LED off - this means that all components have been properly switched on and the device is ready to use. Important! The LED light may also be switched off when the whole device is disconnected from the mains.
2. When can I disconnect the device from the power source?
The device can be safely disconnected from the power source at any time after it has been switched off (using the remote control or the red button) and after waiting the required amount of time for the lamp to cool down (usually 1.5 min - after that time you should hear a short double beep).  Important! Disconnecting the device without waiting the required time may significantly affect the life of the lamp or even damage it.
3. The magic carpet does not respond to movement in the main menu - what to do?
It's possible that the “interactive menu” option has been deactivated - in order to activate it, enter the settings menu (mode button on the remote control) →System → Remote control operation only → deactivate.

When the game menu appears, remove the USB stick from the device.

7. Why doesn't the remote control work?
First check if you need to replace the batteries due to normal use. The remote control may also not work when the device is being switched on (when the red LED is flashing).
8. How often should the device be cleaned?
Keeping the device clean can significantly improve image quality and playability of our games/applications. We recommend for the device to be cleaned from the outside (removing dust and dirt) at least once every six months and if there is already a lot of dust inside the device, specialised cleaning by our technical service is recommended.
