Meet Novus, The World’s First Modular Smartphone for Kids
Today’s parents want their kids to be in touch and reachable at all times for safety reasons, but they hesitate to give youngsters smartphones at too early an age. Kids are always attracted to fun electronic gadgets but regular smartphones can be a distraction or expose them to unhealthy internet content. What is needed is a device that has the reliable connectivity of a smartphone along with sensible parental controls and features kids love such as camera, multimedia, and more. Enter Novus, the first modular kids’ smartphone that can transform into smartwatch or AI speaker, keeping children entertained and parents connected.
Abardeen, an international wearables innovators startup, has unveiled Novus, the World’s First 3-in-1 Modular Gizmo for Kids. This revolutionary phone, smartwatch, and home assistant designed specifically for children is available now on Kickstarter. With 35 more days to go, they have raised $25,652 from 145 backers exceeding the fundraising goal of $10,000.
Abardeen is not new to wearables . The startup has been producing smartphones for kids for more than 10 years. Their team is dedicated to satisfying the needs of both kids and parents alike. Now they are back with a next-generation kids’ 3-in-1 wearable that provides reliable communication, location services, and fun features that make Novus a smart choice for a child’s first mobile device. The revolutionary Novus wearable combines phone, smartwatch and home assistant in one device that lets children safely use the internet and stay connected with parents.
Novus changes form factor to perfectly accommodate the needs of children. It makes the perfect kid-sized mini phone with a touch wheel controller that is a simple and intuitive control method. In smartwatch mode, the core device sits securely on the wrist so it won’t get lost or left behind. At home, Novus becomes a useful information tool and multimedia player powered by Google Assistant and simple voice commands.
“When we set out to build Novus, we wanted to take the latest available technology and apply it to the unique needs of a child and their parents. We knew that it would have to be simple to use and fun, with features that kids love, yet have the power of parental controls and a reliable way for parents to reach their kids anytime and anywhere. Novus is the best of both worlds, a phone that kids love and that parents approve of.” – Jacko Liu, CEO Abardeen
Novus is a reliable way for kids and parents to stay connected. Parents can make a video call, phone call or send voice/text message via the Novus. For children, Novus provides instant contact with their parents or an SOS mode that immediately puts them in touch with an administrator who can provide help in emergencies.
In addition to phone calls, Novus has a robust suite of location services including GPS, A-GPS, LBS, Wi-Fi, and more, allowing parents to track their kid’s location at all times. The Novus app allows parents to manage their kids’ devices in a number of useful ways, including a contact filter, exercise tracker and disable period feature that limits screen time.
