We can all admit that the attention span of the average human being isn’t that great these days. We can also agree that kids’ attention span is even shorter. That fact makes it hard to market kid based electronics, but Joyray wants to change that with their open source smartwatch for kids. This device is called Jumpy and has a lot of things that developers can tweak to keep the interest of the kids.
A Taipei-based hardware startup called JoyRay wants to create a smartwatch for kids that won’t end up abandoned like the Velveteen Rabbit. Founder and CEO Jerry Chang, who was division head of Foxconn’s smartphone business before leaving last December, believes the key to creating a kids’ smartwatch with enduring appeal is to provide an open SDK and release new apps by JoyRay and third-party developers every month.
