A Child's Phone That Actually Works
Telepocalypse has an interesting idea for a Fisher-Price style child's phone that actually works, thanks to Skype (Baby Babble).
Up to five buttons, one for each person. When theyre online, the button glows green. When youre talking to that person, it glows red. Press the button to connect and disconnect. Press multiple buttons for a conference call between all grandparents. Totally under the initiative of your kid, no parents needed. Incoming calls? Probably not, or at least a parent-selectable option (naturally, only from pre-approved buddies). Auto power-off after 5 mins of relative silence.
There will be other limited-use phones developed as well. This seems a wide open area for innovation.
