PHASE 2
- SonarPen DIY Kit & STEAM programming

The DIY kit:

With an improved and optimized design from PHASE 1, product manufactured part counts will decrease by 30%, production efficiency will be increased by 35% and thanks to our experience in the production of the original SonarPen, DOA (dead on arrival) rate has been decreasing by half.

The newly designed SonarPen is so simple to assemble that a child can put the pen together within 10 minutes. The SonarPen DIY Kit targets the maker / educational market. Promotion and production launch is scheduled for mid 2020. The kit will be compatible with all existing SonarPen supporting apps on the iOS and Android platform.


STEAM PROGRAMMING:

STEAM is the most popular way for learning technology. The SonarPen SDK that currently only available to commercial app developers, will be made available for students and amateurs coders for use and implement into their apps and projects free of charge!

The package will allow to access the SonarPen through Javascript (web browser), Python or Scratch.
