‘Magicbit’ wins Startup of the Year Award


Magicbits (Pvt) Ltd won the national level Startup of the Year Award at the SLASSCOM Ingenuity Awards 2022 organised by Sri Lanka Association for Software Services Companies (SLASSCOM). Magicbit (www.magicbit.cc) is a Sri Lankan Ed-Tech solutions designing company. The signature product of the company is ‘Magicbit,’ a tiny computer that can be programmed to create different smart innovations with technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), robotics and electronics. For example, even a 10-year-old child can develop an application in just 10 minutes using ‘Magicbit’. This is the ‘magic’ of ‘Magicbit’’, a spokesman said.

Education systems are transforming worldwide to face industry 4.0 challenges by introducing a new stream combining Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The difficulty, complexity and cost of STEM tools make it harder for students, teachers and parents to follow this path. ‘Magicbit’ is a certified STEM tool for learning which is easy to use and affordable.

‘Magicbit’ was created by engineers from the University of Moratuwa, he added.
