APIdou – Découvrir le numérique avec des câlins


APIdou is the perfect gamepad for young kids discovering tablets and screens. Exclusively based on tactile interactions and developed in close partnership with childhood experts, APIdou offers a playful experience that follows your kid’s development.

There is a real need for new generations to interact with the digital world early on. I don’t necessarily mean they have to learn to code but they need to be aware of the gap between a real object and it’s digital representation. [...] I will be more than happy if it got as much success as possible.

Nicolas Sadirac, co-founder of 42, innovative coding school in Paris and Fremont, CA
