Pottery at home

December 21, 2010

Ishra spotted a junior pottery set during one of our visits to ‘Toys R Us’ and insisted that she should have it. It’s really good fun especially for kids (as well as adults like me) who are new at this.

The only downside is that the potter wheel which runs on battery and made from plastic material, doesn’t have a speed controller. So there’s only one speed, being quite fast, to work with! But the kids never did complain.

Ishra and Aditya had so much fun doing pottery that we had to get more clay within a couple of days.

 

Toy that Tweets

December 4, 2009

I know, two of my recent posts had been about social media but Twoddler is just far too interesting for me to ignore. And thanks to MyAlltop, I am now able to be up to date with news that interest me.

Twoddler is a prototype device which hooks up a Fisher Price toy to a Twitter account. Watch the video to see how it works.

I am now wondering though, if Twoddler makes it to market will the device be able to keep up with the changes that are happening in social media and be flexible enough to stay current?

I love technology especially those that can be integrated with human touch and improve quality of lives.
