2. A treasure chest of knowledge at your fingertips.
With over 1000+ cool facts, 400+ highlights, Orboot uses Augmented Reality to make highlighted features come alive on any mobile or tablet screen. There’s no other globe that does this.

3. The best feature about Orboot? It has no political boundaries.
The continents on the Orboot globe are not split into countries (children can learn about different countries through the app). This unique feature promotes inclusiveness and open-mindedness in Orbooters, making them global citizens.

4. Orboot triggers active learning in students.
The AR-globe comes with a bunch of continually-upgraded quizzes, games, puzzles and challenges. Designed to help kids learn better, they wouldn’t even realize that they are learning while playing with Orboot. Orboot enhances visualization and engagement in all these aspects like no other toy. Moreover, the knowledge that students gain through active learning will have a lasting impact than traditional passive modes.
