WHAT IS APIDOU ?
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.
