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.
