Product Description

Introducing Kinetic, a new generation of interactive input devices that brings the fun back into learning through kinesthetic engagement. Designed to enhance learning outcomes for teachers, therapists, and carers, Kinetic leverages motion-based interactions to create a dynamic and effective educational tool.

Learning In Motion!

Kinetic incorporates a gyroscope to detect orientation and motion, sending this information wirelessly to either an iPad or a Pretorian SimplyWorks receiver. This innovative device can detect taps, tilts, and directional movements, making it perfect for a variety of interactive activities.


  • Wireless Connectivity: Connects via Bluetooth for iPad or SimplyWorks for other devices.
  • Gyroscopic Detection: Senses orientation and motion.
  • Versatile Applications: Use for educational games, sensory activities, and assistive technology.
  • Built-in Rechargeable Battery: Long-lasting power with automatic power-off feature.
  • Programmable Functions: Easily set up for different activities and outputs.
  • Compact and Portable: Lightweight and easy to use across different environments.

Product Variants:

  • Kinetic for iPad: Ideal for use with the Smooth Talker AAC app, playing music or video clips, and iOS Switch Control.
  • Kinetic for SimplyWorks: Best for controlling toys, mains appliances, and using with SimplyWorks devices like Smooth Talker hardware.

Activities and Uses:

  • Dice: Place Kinetic in a soft play cube; each face triggers a different message or sound.
  • Find-Me: Users find specific images on the cube, receiving rewards like music clips or device activation.
  • Find-Me-Sequence: Users find all six images in sequence, with similar reward mechanisms.
  • Dice-as-a-Switch: Each face change triggers a switch output, useful for interactive games. Tap: Acts as a switch when tapped, perfect for sensory rooms.
  • Tilt/Float: Provides switch output when tilted, can be used in hydrotherapy pools (with waterproof casing).

Example Activities:
