The ABC is a new word in the Kazakh science and was developed by the team of Interactiv Kazakhstan company headed by the author of the project Nuraly Kudaybergenuly. Its uniqueness is in fact that the book can be read, or listened to. Both texts and music are performed by the best artists once you apply an electronic pen to the page.

President Nursultan Nazarbayev, in his introduction to the book said, “I believe that, having been developed on the basis of innovative technologies, “Danalyk alіppesі” will expand your horizons, develop your speaking skills through precious heritage of our nation, and will become a valuable tool for your spiritual enrichment.”

Nuraly Kudaybergenuly demonstrated to the audience the possibilities of their creation. Silent pages spoke and sang on the touch of a magic pen.

According to the author, the book is made in accordance with the latest technology that allows reading out a special code printed on paper which is similar to the cash tape used in the shops at clearing and settlement operations.
