Crazy Gears is an educational app from the folks behind Busy Shapes. Children can explore gears, chains, rods and pulleys in this interactive iPad app. Users construct machines as they notice how different combinations influence their design. Inspired by Seymour Papert’s theory on educational technology, this Gears App was also designed to provide students with a playful space to explore relationships between objects.
