Kids these days seem to be much more hyperactive and easily bored than their predecessors, and many people believe this is due to their diet which is full of sugar and empty calories apart from their conditional ‘programming’ by society and the media. Jesse Resnick attempts to address this issue with a new toy-like device that can grab kids’ attention while limiting compulsive behavior to a short time. This Repeat device is worn on the wrist, featuring flashing rubber knobs that blink in preprogrammed patterns, where it attempts to have the child follow along with his/her fingers by pinching. How about getting a Nintendo DSi instead? That ought to help.
