Childrens Gadgets

Gadgets are great for us big kids adults but so as not to let the little kids miss out this section of Coolest Gadgets is dedicated to sharing gadgets especially for children (though I’m sure some will be suitable for us big kids too :) ).

 

Piper Computer Kit helps kids learn that the machines aren’t magic

by Caitlyn

For those of us that grew up when only one computer was in the household and phones were meant for little more than talking, it seemed like magic when the two became one in smartphones, and computers became capable of anything you can imagine. For kids who are growing up today, smartphones, 3D printers, and hover boards are just “how it is”. To make sure that they understand what makes them tick, you’ll have to educate them yourselves, as most schools only have kids learn on computers, not learn about them.

The Fidget Hand Spinner keeps busy minds occupied

by Caitlyn

Fidget Spinner

When you’re sitting during a lecture where the professor is going off on a tangent or are stuck in a meeting where your boss loves to hear themselves talk, your mind wanders. It’s hard not to be restless and start tapping your feet, fingers, and playing with whatever is nearby. You don’t want to be rude, but you also don’t want to be bored, and have to find a common space in between the two so you don’t go insane.

The Night N’ Day Mechanical Globe teaches practical knowledge

by Caitlyn

Day N' Night Globe

You can never know what information is going to be relevant to your life until you need it. Our parents hound us to pay attention in school because every ounce of knowledge might be the thing that leads us to success in the future. That being said, schools don’t teach us everything we need to know about life, and in all honesty, they never could.

The Artograph Projector – expand your artistic horizons

by Caitlyn

Artograph Projector

When you make art for a living, you never know when inspiration is going to strike in unexpected ways. You could exert your efforts in sculpting clay for three years and then decide to start honing your painting skills on the side. On the same page, you never quite know what sort of commissions will fall under your nose if you’re open to that sort of thing. You might work in excruciatingly small detail and have a customer wanting you to take a tiny piece of art and expand it over a larger space.

AirJamz – the thrill of playing music without actually playing

by Caitlyn

You can pick up a new skill at any stage in your life with enough determination. Whether that’s painting, ice skating, or playing guitar, there’s no such thing as too old or too young to start learning. Of course, if you just want the fun of jamming out with friends without actually knowing how to play an instrument, that’s where air guitar, piano, and lip syncing come into play.

The Treepod is a treehouse that requires no building skills

by Caitlyn

treepod

When we’re kids, just about anything can be an amazing palace or rocket ship that will get you to space. The imagination of a child can take them anywhere, and they need little more than sticks and sand to come up with completely different worlds. When they get older, they usually want more tangible items like toys or tents to ground them in reality a bit more, but still have their own space for play.

MudWatt can teach everyone about clean, dirty energy

by Caitlyn

You can make someone sit down in a classroom and read a book about how to put together an IKEA chair, but until they’re building it, not all of the dots are going to connect. Humans need real world experiences to understand why and how things are happening around them. Any day you don’t learn something new, you’ve probably died.

This Lunch Box Placemat keeps kids healthy and parents sane

by Caitlyn

Having kids is like signing up for a full time in-home job, with a boss that doesn’t know how to be professional. On top of trying to mold your child into a functioning human being, you also have to keep up with your own life, and the wrenches your bundles of joy throw into the works. Cleaning up messes will be a constant state of existence, making anything that’s not machine-washable or something that can be thrown into the dishwasher another chore on top of your already busy days.
