If you have a preschooler, you’re aware of the fact that these kids have absolutely no concept of time. In our house, “the other day” means yesterday and “five more minutes” apparently means “just three more episodes of My Little Pony.” A newly launched Kickstarter (that’s already fully-funded BTW) aims to help little ones gain a better sense of time via a smartwatch called Octopus. Well, we can’t exactly call it a smartwatch. It’s an “icon-based watch that teaches kids good habits and the concept of time. It’s a watch, it’s a scheduler, it’s an assistant.” We’ve got a hunch that a kid that gets a reminder to brush their teeth on their watch is going to be a lot more excited to do so than they are when you nag them to do it.
