Pentop computer for the kids
From kiddie product innovators LeapFrog comes the Pentop computer, which seems to basically be a PDA for your chid. It can even "read" wat your child writes since it's an actual pen.
The gadget, which contains an actual ink pen, can "see" what you write, read it out loud, and respond to written commands. At the heart of these capabilities lies a tiny camera, which is embedded near Fly's writing tip, and special Fly paper, which must be used with the device. The dots printed on this paper and invisible to the eye tell the pen's camera exactly where it's positioned on the paper, so as it moves, the pen "sees" exactly what you write. Similar functionality is just becoming available for adults in digital pens such as Logitech's ( LOGI ) io 2.
