“The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” (Albert Einstein)
Thanks to technology the sky is the limit for many ideas and concepts. However, a finished product must be reliable and robust. This is what we achieved by simplifying the technology that is at work inside BILO.
In simple words BILO is made up of plugs and sockets in the shape of blocks. This allows for reliable and precise detection of each block's position along the X, Y and Z axis, as well as for it's rotational orientation.
The base reads this information and transmits it via Bluetooth 4.0 to the mobile device.
Keeping in mind that there are 915,103,765 ways to combine six pieces of eight-stud bricks, one starts to grasp the limitless potential of BILO.
And there is more!
Every placing and removing of each block can be tracked and recorded.
This allows parents, educators or therapists to monitor the learning progress and helps to identify strengths and weaknesses.
