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 :) ).

 

The Night N’ Day Mechanical Globe teaches practical knowledge

by Caitlyn - on March 16th, 2017

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

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.

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.

The Sphero Force Band controls BB-8 with the wave of your hand

by Caitlyn

When you watched Star Wars for the first time, how badly did you wish you could use the Force? While it is more complicated than simple telekinesis, that part is the one we all hone in on. For kids, that is amplified by a thousand, and they will pretend they have it and wave their arms around like mad regardless of whether or not they actually affect anything in the tangible world.

Cozmo is a mischievous robot that wants to be your friend

by Caitlyn

It may not be today, or tomorrow, but we really are approaching the time when robots will have sentience. While that could either be a good or bad thing, we won’t know until it happens. Until then, we can have little robot friends that have a bit of a human streak programmed into them.
