Having acquired Specdrums back in June, Sphero has officially launched product for its new musical coding brand.
Specdrums are musical, app-enabled rings that empower kids of all ages and skill levels to create and play music by using colours on a variety of surfaces as their instruments.
Kids can also create their own masterpieces on the corresponding Specdrums app using hundreds of instruments, loops and sounds.
“Sphero recognises Specdrums as an opportunity to engage kids at the intersection of arts, math, science and technology, building a parallel framework between coding and music composition,” said Paul Berberian, CEO, Sphero.
“By seeing the world around them as a canvas, kids are able to use Specdrums to create their own songs using coding, which is really exciting for them, their parents and their teachers. Meanwhile, the creative pattern-making of loops and sounds strengthens their math and problem-solving skills.”
Specdrums retails at $64.99 for one-ring and $99.99 for two-rings.
