    Animal! is a classic "computer learning game" that may bring lots of fun, but also the opportunity to learn new things (like new animals, logic thinking, improve children’s writing/reading skills, etc.) for all family. The game is based on an early example of Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm. 

    Initially, for fun and as an example, Animal! knows 50 creatures, but you can reset it at any moment to start only knowing two animals! 

    How it works?

    The game basically works like this: When Animal! is played, the device will request you to think on an animal and it will try to guess it by asking different questions. If the device guesses incorrectly, it will ask you for the name of the animal you were thinking on, plus a yes or no question that will allow your device to use to distinguish between the animal it guessed incorrectly and the new animal. This way the game “learns” new animals, becoming each time more "knowledgeable". Chances are next time it will guess correctly!


    • The game allows you to show the list of animals it has learned so far, as well as to "reset" its database to the original 50 animals, or just two animals, so that you can start over from scratch at any time and create your own database. 

    • You can create an animals database as complex or as fun as you want: Enter funny questions and facts for children, it will be lots of fun for everyone! Or follow a scientific animals classification/taxonomy. Students will get interested and learn. 


    • When you enter a new animal, you don’t need to put the first letter in uppercase. Also when you enter a question, you don’t need to end it with a question mark. Animal! will take care of that for you! 

    • Animal! Does not require any internet or Wi-Fi connection.

    A little background

      The logic followed by this game predates the personal computer (PC) era by many years, going back at least to the early 70's. The algorithm was originally developed by Arthur Luehrmann at Dartmouth College, subsequently shortened and modified by Nathan Teichholtz at DEC and Steve North at Creative Computing.

    Mind Read!

    Mind Read is a fun, but also educational game. Mind Read is great for ALL AGES, from children to seniors, allowing the whole family to exercise mental addition skills. 

    You can amaze your friends and relatives by asking them to think on any number between 1 and 63. Then you will ask them to look for the number they have in mind over Mind Read App six simple tables (each with different sets of numbers from 1 to 63). They will have to answer, by pressing the Yes or No buttons, if their number was shown at each table. immediately after the sixth question is answer, you will be able to guess the number they were thinking on... They will be shocked!

    For a different kind of fun, you may choose as well having the device to guess your friend's (or your own) number). 

    How it works?

    This game is based on binary math. When your friend is answering, with Yes or No, each of the six questions, you will see at the bottom right corner an "R" followed by a six Ys and/or Ns, indicating each of your friend’s answers. To guess the number you'll simply have to mentally add, starting from zero, the following numbers according with R’s contents:


    Y on 1st  position: add 1

    Y on 2nd position: add 2

    Y on 3rd position: add 4

    Y on 4th position: add 8

    Y on 5th position: add 16

    Y on 6th position: add 32

    All Ns will be ignored, so the more Ns, the easier for you to guess. The mental addition total will give you exactly the number your friend was thinking on! 


    If after going through the six questions you read at the bottom right corner:


    Then you will mentally add: 1 + 4 + 8 + 32. That's equal to 45. You can look at your friend straight to the eyes for a couple of seconds and say... "I am reading your mind now…" Then you simply say: "The number you were thinking is 45!" They will be socked and would like you to guess their mind again...

    The more you play, the more you will be exercising your mind for mental addition. Isn’t it a witty way for keeping your brain in good shape?

    So enjoy! 


    • A fun, but also educational game.

    • Increase your mental addition skills while playing.


    • You can guess your friend's number, or your device can guess your friend's, or your own, number. 

    • Mind Read does not require any internet or Wi-Fi connection.

    A little background

    The logic followed by this game is based on binary arithmetic, just the way computers work. Numbers are specially added to each of the six tables based on their binary notation.
