ThingLink and YetiTablet Announce Collaboration Bringing Multisensory Learning Experiences to Giant Tablets

Louise Jones

The partnership  focuses on solutions that help patients, elders and students with learning disabilities navigate everyday challenges at home, school, or residential care facility.

Greetings from Dare to Learn Festival, Helsinki! We are happy to share that ThingLink and Kuori, the Finnish manufacturer of giant YetiTablet touch screens, have agreed on a partnership. Our goal is to deliver a new plug-and-play solution to hospitals and medical centers, residential care facilities, and special education classrooms for easily creating and displaying interactive, multisensory content on a large touch screen.

YetiTablet is a large-scale tablet built on an open Android OS. This means it works like a smartphone, and does not require additional software installations or learning a new operating system. Similarly, creating interactive images with ThingLink does not require previous technical knowledge, and is suitable for content creators of any age.

At the core of the collaboration is bringing interactive multimedia experiences to large touch screens.

Example 1: Navigating in the everyday environment

Interactive experiences on large touch screens can help understand the everyday home or learning environment; where things are, what are they called, and what should one do. For example, an interactive image from inside of a fridge can help an autistic person or a patient with a memory disorder to process information and build a sensible path for action. It can also contain notes, audio clues, or videos from caregivers and teachers.

Example 2: Supporting virtual mobility

Virtual tours on large touch screens give patients with restricted physical mobility an opportunity to access the world virtually. Unlike with VR headsets, with large touch screens patients can move and touch interactive images together, discover sounds, narration, or additional photos. This way, virtual tours in rest homes, hospital lounges or waiting rooms can become a stimulating social experience.
