Since a few years, the Tiptoi-Pen from Ravensburger has been a great success with kids in Germany and abroad. Unfortunately, though, it is designed as a closed system that only works with books and games from Ravensburger. We wanted to do more, so we reverse-engineered the system, and now parents can create custom Tiptoi product for and with their kids, and indeed amazing things have been created, as the project gallery shows.

There are also a few hardware hacking enthusiasts who'd like to start intensive work on reverse-engineering the tiptoi's firmware and understand the pen's firmware update process. Parts of the firmware have been extracted from firmware update binaries - and also via flash readout. Can you add some support here? ;)
