LG and Neonode Partner on KidsPad 2

There is very little doubt that the tablet market is only getting bigger as we move further into the 21st century. Companies are starting to put together tablets specifically built for children. LG has announced it will be integrating some rather high tech software and hardware produced by Neonode. LG is incorporating the zForce CORE and zForce AIR technologies into the LG and the LG KidsPad 2.

This is the first time Neonodes zForce CORE technology is being used for the touchscreen and the zForce CORE technology in order to have the touch functionality outside the actual tablet's housing. This kind of technology works best when it comes to the tablet being placed on a flat surface. The new technology is planned by LG to be opening up a whole new world of interactive technology for its KidsPad 2 line. Interactive games and learning applications are built to engage a child's inquisitive nature. The tablet will deliver an easy to use touch-based interaction on and outside the device.

 Neonode has been working hard to become a leader in the field such as children's tablets. zForce AIR tech is an entirely different way to offer up technology to children. Tablets are being used all the time in new and different [ways] and the children's tablet market is one that has been largely untapped.

Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode, talked about the technology in a recent release saying, "LG is proving to be the leader in innovation for children's tablets with the KidsPad 2. We are proud and excited to be part of this new innovative device. We believe that this innovation is perfect for smartphone, tablet, and gaming devices."

It seems likely Neonode and LG will be partnering in the future on a number of different projects. The KidsPad 2 could be just the beginning for these two firms.
