A toy companion for children with autism in development stages
June 14, 2016
Leka, a ballshaped, face-changing toy is in development which can act as a companion for kids with autism.
The toy has a face that changes expression, and it uses light and sound to interact with users through various games that increase the motor and cognitive skills of an individual.
Leka can sense and respond to a child's participation in a game and sends out positive feedback like showing a smiling face, which in turn helps boost confidence.
