Polipo project six keywords are: companion, friendly, cute, playful, reliable, and soothing. Polipo is all of these things. He works to soothe by having a setting where you can choose his color so he can be a light companion for children, a night light a friend always there sharing his calming light. Using gestures to change the tone frequency, in sound mode, and light brightness, in light mode, helps cognitively and physically develop children. His simple design helps not to distract the child while being cute and playful to help motivate and intrigue them during therapies. Polipo will most importantly work like he is supposed to and be reliable for parents or therapists as well as the children.
