Add a li'l rhythm into your kids' routine and get them learning with Specdrums, a music-focused product for kids which also incorporates the STEAM learning method. Improve language and reasoning skills with a little musical help and have your kid bopping and learning in no time.

Sphero recognizes Specdrums as an opportunity to engage kids at the intersection of arts, math, science, and technology, building a parallel framework between coding and music composition. By seeing the world around them as a canvas, kids are able to use Specdrums to create their own songs using coding, which is really exciting for them, their parents and their teachers. Meanwhile, the creative pattern-making of loops and sounds strengthens their math and problem-solving skills. (Paul Berberian, CEO of Sphero)

Smart Diaper

Yup. It's exactly what it sounds like. Using a Bluetooth device, a sensitive sensor picks up whenever a baby has gone number one or number two, alerting their parents that a change is imminent. The Smart Diaper has been designed to combat diaper rash and eliminates the need for the dreaded 'sniff test'.

Audi/Disney's virtual reality concept

Gone are the days of hauling a TV into the car for a long road trip: now you can pop on a VR headset in your Audi and have your kids experience Disney adventures all from the back seat of your car! While there's no word on a release date yet, we can't wait to join the Guardians of the Galaxy during our next trip to grandma and grandpa's house.
