Description of Startup:

HEKXO is an upcoming Kickstarter project that expands digital fun and education into the real world. By placing programmable Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags on objects, you can use a handheld scanner to identify them.

The true potential of this interaction is realized through HEKXO’s library of customizable apps. On the education side, you can teach basic item identification, practice another language, learn members of your family, and more. For fun, you can do relays, out-of-the-blue races, and play as a wizard who levitates objects. More apps will come as we grow with our community.

With HEKXO, we’re asking people to rethink about their surroundings.
