Remember when the best toy was the actual box your toys came in? With a bit of DIY ingenuity, glue, paint and kid creativity, a box can become a rocketship, UFO or just about anything. It’s the kind of imaginative play that’s only possible when kids put stuff together – and that’s something that apps don’t do very well.

Moonbot’s latest app Moonbeeps: Gizmo is an imagination support device: a control panel for anything that kids create. It’s inspired by the cardboard box creations and pillow forts our own kids have built at home. Whether they want to pilot a spaceship or explore a lunar landscape in a rover, Gizmo can be the dashboard for their creation. It’s an app to spark fun and creative experiences for kids out in the “real world.”

Features: – Tons of sliders, buttons and knobs that make fun noises and visual effects. – Activate six switches to explore deep space. Then, move your device around for 360º gyroscopic-action! – Spin the dial to check in your crew. – Push the thrusters into overdrive! – Swap control panels using the oscillating crystal switcher. – Emergency! Red Alert! Sound the alarm with three “defcon” buttons: green, yellow or red. – Use different combinations and discover new effects. Push the thrusters into overdrive, then go into deep space! Whoa! – Best of all, use your imagination and creativity to make Gizmo your own fun experience!
