Help Fund Zeenii: A Weekly App for Young Thinkers, Makers, & Explorers on IndieGoGo

I think the above video is all you need to know about this app. If my boys were still in the 7-10 age group, they would be jumping all over this app. If I were still in the 7-10 age group, I’d be jumping all over this app. Hell, I’m nearly 37-years-old and I want to get my hands on this app.

From the IndieGoGo page:

The money we’re trying to raise will help us make the first issue of Zeenii. The “Launch” issue is all about rockets, aliens, and going to Mars. It will include:

  • Mission to Mars: Learn all about the Mars Curiosity Rover as you assemble it, blast it off in a rocket, and land it on Mars. Once on Mars, take some pictures of the red planet.
  • Spaceships Through the Ages: Flip through our Living Room Time Machine, turning on the TVs in each room to see spaceships as represented in science fiction over the last sixty years.
  • Packing for Mars: Use your iPad camera to take pictures of the things that you would bring with you when you colonize Mars.
  • Bottle Rocket How-to: Launch your own rocket with our step-by-step instructions.

With this first issue, we’ll be testing with kids and parents before moving forward with follow-up issues to make sure we’ve got the best possible app experience for our audience and for you, our backers.

So who is this “we”? They are Tabbed Media.  Bob Mate, David Ball, and fellow Wired GeekMom contributor Amy Kraft. Their combined experience in the magazine publishing and children’s media industries makes them more than qualified to create this app.

How much are they hoping to raise? They are looking to raise $25, 000 by January 15, 2013.

Head on over to the IndieGoGo page to find out about all of the great perks, and more about this app and where the money will be going.
