BOB Takes Role as Strict Parent
If you are tired of yelling at your kids to stop playing video games, Hopscotch Technology’s BOB will take care of the problem. With a simple set-up, it can be used with all electronics, including computers and TVs. BOB will simply turn off whatever device it is connected to at a pre-selected time. It can handle up to 6 users and is tamper-resistant, unless that kid is also a particularly smart one.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends only 1 to 2 hours of screentime per day. We suspect that if parents were to enforce that, there would be a lot of Johnny going over to Jimmy’s house for sleepovers. BOB is available for $99.00 to keep your conscience clear.
