We are living in a fast-paced century in a world of computers and programming. Nowadays, parents pay big attention to the education of their children and put lots of effort into making their future bright and prosperous. As programming is gaining popularity among kids, many worldwide companies develop educational tools and devices to teach children how to code. One of those devices is Xtron Pro which is a programming game console that can convert into a smartwatch if needed.

The main feature of the handheld game console is programming. Users can create, then run and test different types of games by using dedicated software, Xmaker which supports coding languages like Javascript and Python. This totally kid-friendly software has already prewritten codes to make the programming more understandable. Already interested? Xtron Pro has way more features besides coding. Together we will thoroughly analyze all of them.

The Product

Innovation

Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, the combination of several features into one or the introduction of a new feature to an old product is also considered to be an innovation.

As I already mentioned this handheld game console is mostly related to programming and coding designed for kids. It allows you to not only create games by Visual program language, Javascript, and Python in MakeCode Arcade but also directly on Xtron Pro with TileCode designed by Microsoft. Furthermore, you can create motion sensing and multiplayer games, store them into 16 MB flash storage. Your imagination is your limit. But if your kid and why not you are a fan of NES games (Super Mario, Contra, Pac-Man, etc) simply download them from the internet and then copy Xtron Pro drive disk.

Another cool thing about Xtron Pro is that it turns into a smartwatch with customized interfaces and functions like step counting. This is not the end. Xtron Pro can be used to develop IoT applications. It means you can control your hardware remotely with Mobile App and Xtron Pro.

Competitiveness

How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.

We are witnessing how this era is becoming more and more mechanized and programmed. IoT applications have penetrated our lives smoothly and unnoticeably and we can do nothing but learn ourselves and teach our children how to use them. Most parents want their children to learn coding from a very young age and many companies continuously develop educative tools and robots that teach kids how to code. Let’s quickly go through some of them.

  1. Kano Kit- $130

It not only allows you and your children to create, run and test different kinds of games by using Javascript and Python coding languages but also learn to code as they have already prewritten code blocks and image resources. After analyzing them it becomes much easier to create your own. Xtron Pro can quickly become a smartwatch with multiple functions, Countdown Timer, IoT MQTT Server to control hardware remotely. And this handheld game console with its amazing functions starts from $73. Isn’t that great?

The Team

Reliability

How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.

Xtron Pro is created by a Finland-based tech company Ovobots. The team led by Justin Xue strongly believes the company will become one of the main manufacturers of educative tools and toys for kids of different ages. 

Xtron Pro is their first crowdfunding project. During 44 live days, they managed to raise $87,688 with the help of 889 backers. The product itself is very innovative and interesting. Hopefully, after the production process, the handheld game console will fully function as introduced. We also have great hopes the team will continue developing new handheld game consoles and the circle of backers will be wider.
