Wise Words with Jonas Gam and Peder Burgaard

We’ve come across many innovations that seek to enliven mundane, every day tasks, however it’s rare that we see a business venture that aims to improve on leisure pursuits that are already much-enjoyed. That, however, is exactly what entrepreneurs Jonas Gam and Peder Burgaard set their minds to with the idea for Son-X Octavia, a device that encourages children to treat their playtime as a chance to complete stimulating challenges. The Son-X Octavia can be attached to play equipment, emitting the sound of applause in order to motivate children — for example, a device attached to a swing will play applause sounds each time the child swings higher.
