Visuals are most powerful tools for long-term memory and learning. It makes complete sense as our brain mainly works as an image processor. A major part of our sensory cortex is devoted to vision. Interestingly, the portion of the brain which is involved in the processing of words is quite small in comparison to the part that processes visual images.

Whatever, we are watching and hearing that will stay in mind for the longest time or for last ever. With the same concept when TV ads will be replaced by educational content that will be inculcated in children's mind easily. As children remember TV ads or Songs so easily without giving much effort, the same way they can memories customizable educational content. TV ads are not that much help for kids, and with this idea, this revolutionary product came into existence," said Vijay Kantharia, Founder of Cerebroz EduTree starts up.
How EduTree works?
EduTree receives inputs from the set-top box directly into its specially designed Chip. An inbuilt sensitive system processes the signals and replaces TV ads with educational videos stored inside it. Ads are playing as it is on TV in the background that you can see in the PIP mode. After few seconds the PIP mode disappears from the screen which allows a complete view of strikingly conceptualized educational videos.
"With just the hovering of a mouse, PIP mode comes back alive giving you a peace of mind that you don't miss any of your programs, but instead of repetitive ads you remember educational content," said Vijay.
This unique device would not only help parents to control their child's addiction of TV but other features like performance report would help to track the child's activity like duration of watching TV and internet surfing etc.
