As much as we love our smartphones, iPads and tablets, we still don't know a whole lot about how they affect our kids. You know that you see kids playing with them all the time, but we don't yet know definitively what will happen to the learning and development of our kids.
So one team set out to change that. A company called Elemental Path is kickstarting a new dinosaur toy that has a thinking, learning robot brain powered by the amazing IBM Watson computer. This means that these "CogniToys" can interact with children and teach them in real time.
Elemental Path's vision on Kickstarter is "We bring toys to life with speech and a personality, allowing them to interactively engage and grow with a child." And let me just say, these toys seem really cool.
