Platform where kids use drag/ drop visual programming to create light up wearable tags


We first got a chance to talk to GigaBryte cofounders, Mo Akade and Michael Duong at the 2012 Stanford LDT Expo, where they showed us an early iteration of what they called TinkerTags--light-up shoes that users could program using a Scratch-like interface. The product has since evolved into a 2" x 2" matrix of LED lights that kids can clip onto their clothes, backpacks, or wear as necklaces. The team has also created a platform where users can code together at the same time and share tags with other. Social, tangible code, with lights? It's the kind of L.A. Gear shoes-on-steroids concept that we would have loved as kids.

GigaBryte (originally called TinkerTags) was part of the Imagine K12 fourth cohort in 2013. The company plans a formal launch sometime in 2013.
