Speed bumps will one day be replaced with illusions of children

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2010

Speed bumps are so last century. That’s why the Canadian city of Vancouver is experimenting with a speed control solution that uses an optical illusion to trick you into thinking there is a child in the road. I’m sure that will slow people down and give some people heart attacks too.

The program is being piloted near École Pauline Johnson Elementary School, where they use a very lifelike painted optical illusion that looks like a little girl chasing a ball into traffic.

KDDI and SECOM anti-kidnapping phones for childrenIn this country we don’t generally let small kids walk the streets alone, but in Japan it’s common to see children of say 6 or 7 seven years-old walking the streets by themselves, so it’s good news that they have KDDI’s child safety device called the Mamorino.

KDDI has teamed up with security firm SECOM and designed the phones to prevent kids from being abducted. The unit features a GPS system that lets parents keep track of their children, while at the same time getting them into mobile phone culture at an early age.

Griffin thinks of the children, intros kid-friendly MyPhones headphonesGriffin knows that if a child’s ears go bad today, that child won’t be listening to their headphones as an adult. So they’ve decided to protect their potential future buyers by announcing MyPhones, a set of over-the-ear headphones for kids.

MyPhones are designed for children age 3 to 12 and are smaller than normal headphones. They also include a built-in volume limiter that prevents the headphones from producing audio higher than 85 decibels, which is the recommended maximum volume to avoid hearing damage.

PediSedate: A Game Boy accessory that sedates children

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2009

PediSedate: A Game Boy accessory that sedates childrenWhat you are looking at is a Game Boy hooked up to a nitrous oxide machine, so that this child can be sedated. It’s called the PediSedate and it’s probably a really bad idea.

The PediSedate was designed for use by dentists. Apparently they got bored with putting people under the normal way. The idea is to distract kids with video games while they are drugged for root canal surgery and such. That doesn’t seem creepy at all.

Speaker Buddies are creepy childrenWhoever it was that said that children should be seen and not heard probably didn’t own any Speaker Buddies. These creepy kids are seen and heard. And for some reason they look like Kenny from Southpark. It’s British designer Alex Underwood’s idea for turnig your hi-fi into some sort of creepy ode to Kenneth, he who dies alot. There they sit in ominous judgment of all who enter your home, blasting sound out of their hood. Thankfully they remain a concept at the moment, but that could change.

Musical SpongeBob digital thermometer

Musical SpongeBob digital thermometer
It never ceases to amaze me just how many SpongeBob related products are on the market. You would think his popularity would wane, but he must have nearly as many products as Star Wars by now. It also amazes me, how some of these products are not very well thought out.

For instance, this SpongeBob thermometer. It’s all cute and kid-like and la-de-da. It will even play music while being used. It actually plays the “SpongeBoob SquarePants Theme” which is all well and good, until you realize that this thermometer is for “oral, underarm AND rectal use”. Puts a whole other angle on any music playing cuteness. I mean really, is it weird for a kid to have a Spongebob’s head sticking out of his butt, playing the theme song? You tell me.
