The Leappad Explorer (Leapfrog Enterprises)

Platform

LeapFrog Pollux Platform

The LeapPad Explorer is part of 3 different devices that all share a common hardware platform, based around the Pollux SoC. The platform page contains information generic across these devices, and it is recommended that you refer to that page as it is a good starting point to understanding the LeapPad Explorer, and contains some basic How To's and Tutorials to get you started.

Project Summary

The LeapPad Explorer (like the Didj and Leapster Explorer) is a toy produced by Leapfrog marketed as an educational handheld gaming console for kids aged 4-9. Although it has a proprietary graphical front end, it runs a generic Linux distribution on the same ARM9-based processor as the Didj and Explorer. It also has built in accellerometer, camera, and microphone, along with a bigger touch screen. There are also hints of an internal rumble pack of some kind in the latest source code.
