Art Eddy and Zach Rosenberg bring on Justin Sabo from Digital Dream Labs to talk about his gaming platform called Puzzlets.

Puzzlets combines hands-on play with interactive gaming to form one seamless experience, engaging the mind and teaching the player new ways of thinking. The starter set comes with everything you need and setup is simple. Puzzlets connects wirelessly to a personal device like an iPad or Android tablet.

Digital Dream Labs, LLC is based in Pittsburgh, PA. Their mission is to spark the curiosity in us all, mixing nostalgia with the technology children love.

Their first product, Puzzlets, uses toy puzzle pieces to control video games. This hands-on learning game philosophy starts with fun first and offers endless possibilities to the consumer market. Cork The Volcano, the first game for Puzzlets, enriches logic, sequencing, fine-motor skills through physical interaction and gameplay.
