Expanding on Oregon Scientific's award-winning SmartGlobe line, the new SmartGlobe Infinity offers multiple themes, inspiring content, and includes a wireless talking Smart Pen. This high-tech educational toy teaches countries, capitals, population, history and so much more!

Best of all, the Smart Pen can record notes with its built-in voice recording function. With information that's always up-to-date, the SmartGlobe series is the smarter way to play and learn!
The SmartGlobe Discovery provides amazing value in an economical package. With 19 exciting activities and games, this Globe provides hours of educational entertainment with amazing facts about planet Earth. Learn about the continents and compare countries to learn about their populations, areas, and more. Users can then test their knowledge with the Ultimate Challenge activity!

In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
