Playing board games are becoming less attractive to the younger generation while they prefer interactive, video games and games on your tablet or phone. Kids these days cannot live without technology and more and more of it is being incorporated into their daily lives. Most parents want them to be exposed to technology but would like to set limitations and expose them to things that will help them learn and grow. The Arcade Coder is a game console but not your average game console. It’s a programmable game console that helps kids and parents learn about coding. It helps to unleash your creativity and transform your gaming experience. The Arcade Coder is an multi-colored LED board that is programmable and controllable. It teaches players how to block code and how to design their own games.
Through the different apps available, Games Studio or Sandbox Mode, you get step by step tutorials on how to create pre-coded games or new ones from scratch. This way, you are learning all about coding while having fun and earning game badges. Different projects available through the app will teach things like animation, chance mechanics by creating dice, world mechanics by creating mazes, and skill mechanics by creating multi-player games like Whack’a’Mole.
The Arcade Coder also has pre-loaded classic games to enjoy and you can also use this game console to paint and play. With this game console, kids and adults are no longer playing mindlessly, but using their own creativity to produce something new.
