Why use technology in play?
Lead product designer at Yalp, Rob Tuitert, wanted to explore why the gaming culture was so popular. If outdoor play was as addictive and engaging as computer games then wouldn't we all support this movement? Yalp now has a collection of 5 products that engage different age groups and provide a unique solution to sedentary behaviour and community disconnect.
Yalp interactives are also the only real solution for the 12+ age group when playgrounds in the traditional sense start to lose their appeal. The design team has taken time to understand youth culture, music, sports, and activities that are synonymous with this sub-culture.
All of the Yalp products connect with the internet, to provide owners with control over their play-sets, with the ability to control volume, playable hours, and the opportunity to download new games and keep the interactive play product fresh and new over the years.
The best bit is the access to real-time data usage statistics and game popularity. It is the only outdoor play product that enables you to see how many hours are being played and provides a real understanding of the community and return on investment.
