More than 1.5 million elementary school students around Japan, or one-fifth of the country's elementary-age children, use the Benesse Corporation's Shinken Zemi distance learning program to prepare for junior high school entrance exams. "Perfect clear" is an electronic studying tool designed to help sixth-year students learn Chinese character, mathematics, and history, and handed out to every student at the beginning of their sixth year. Every child wishes that they could magically learn things in a second, so we made this desire the basis of our design concept. The body of the tool looks like a magic scroll floating in space. Children write on it with a "magic wand", and clean its screen with a "crystal". The tool comes in three shades that recall water (blue), fire (orange) and wind (colourless), in hopes that students studying with "perfect clear" will have as much fun as a witch or a wizard learning to cast new spells.
