Beamz Interactive, Inc. Announces New Content Bundle With the National Lekotek Center

The Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle Helps Those With Special Needs Develop Family-Centered Play Activities to Build Social Connections in the Home

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced a new content offering called the Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle, through its previously announced partnership with the National Lekotek Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making play accessible and inclusive for children of all abilities. This bundle includes the Beamz Interactive Music System, 20 songs geared for families and a printed copy of the Lekotek Home and Family Play Guide, which comes with 10 games, for an MSRP of $249.

Beamz Interactive and the National Lekotek Center created the Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle in order to encourage family-centered play. The objective of this tool is to educate families on ways to address the development of cognitive, sensory, communication and emotional skills, during recreational play with the Beamz. The bundle comes with the Lekotek Home and Family Play Guide, which provides a stage for creative expression, entertainment and interactive fun for the entire family.

"Our partnership with Lekotek provides a powerful way for families that have children with special needs to interact and have fun while using the Beamz technology," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "This Family Play Bundle is specifically designed for use in the education and healthcare markets and for families who have children with Autism, Rhett Syndrome and CP. The play guide includes 10 activities that are not only meant to be fun, but also target specific developmental skills and play values."

The Beamz Interactive Music System has become an important device for children of all abilities because music is such an excellent vehicle to teach learning concepts and achieve developmental milestones. Not only can the interactive music system be used in therapy settings, such as the numerous Lekotek centers around the United States, Beamz is also an excellent device to use within the home to create experiences between kids with disabilities and their typically developing siblings, and other family members.

National Lekotek Center's Manager of Industry Relations & Partnerships, Ahren Hoffman, stated, "It was a pleasure collaborating with Beamz on the Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle. Part of the mission behind Lekotek is to increase inclusion within the family. By partnering with Beamz Interactive to create this activity guide, we are helping the entire family come together fostering fun, forging family bonds and developing memories!"

"We are so proud to release the Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle for families who have children with disabilities," said Beamz Sr. Marketing Manager Mary Jo Barry. "Throughout our development process, the staff at Lekotek and the parents from the Autism and Rhett Syndrome communities have been fantastic influences and helped us refine our finished product. Together, we have developed a highly interactive device for children with disabilities, that cleverly utilizes games to incorporate skill-building, developmental milestones and social benefits. From the child's perspective, however, Beamz is simply one of the most sought after and engaging 'toys' they've experienced -- allowing kids of all ages to create music that is both interactive and fun."

Although the Beamz-Lekotek Family Play Bundle comes packaged with the Beamz Interactive Music System and the Lekotek Home and Family Play Guide, each component can be purchased separately as standalone products. The Lekotek Home and Family Play Guide is $29.95 and includes 20 Family Bundle songs. Guides can also be purchased without the song bundle, for $19.95.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
