All Aboard intelino!

That's right--you can now put the dozen Voyager/Intelino lessons developed over the past two months to good use in the classroom!  The "intelino® smart train($99.95) was launched in the United States on September 10, 2019.  It is available in all US Apple Stores.   In addition Amazon has some units available, and units are expected to be available in the intelino online shop and apple.com toward the end of September.  The Track Extension Pack ($24.95), identical to track included in the intelino train Starter Set, is expected to be available by Mid-October 2019.
