• Laptops and Diapers: Two essentials in one bag

    Sure you’ve got a new baby on the way, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still wear horn-rimmed glasses and tote your Mac Pro to your neighborhood organic coffee shop. But those damn diapers! Why can’t the kid learn to use the toilet like a civilized adult?! If only there was a smart-looking messenger satchel that pulled double duty (or is it “doodie”?) as… Read More

  • ‘Baby Mop’ cleans floors with crawl power!

    Truly a two-birds-with-one-stone product, the Baby Mop concept seems to be a divisive topic. Some people seem to think it’s a good idea while others call it “downright disgusting.” I’ll try to stay out of it, as I don’t have any children of my own. Read More

  • Cast your unborn baby in bronze

    Daddytypes found a cool article on a company that is thinking about casting ultrasound pictures of unborn babies using 3D imaging and printing. Read More

  • Rumor: Canon tells employees to make babies so that Japan can live

    Japan has a serious demographic problem. It’s already the world’s oldest society (22% of the population are 65 and older) and the birthrate stands at 1.34 (but a birthrate of 2.0 is needed to maintain Japan’s population). So what does Nippon do? Answer 1: The country produces lots of robots to keep up productivity. Answer 2: The economy, in this case Canon, lets employees go… Read More

  • is one-stop shopping for bald babies

    While many parents worry themselves to death that they’re going to give their children some sort of weird complex, I say to get it over with early by making your baby wear a toupee. After all, society has it in for bald people – bald babies are likely no different. Look at that kid wearing “The Donald” – ha! What a goof! He looks like Donald Trump if Donald Trump… Read More

  • Slow News Day: Here are some babies puking

    While I look for some provocative technology news items on this holiday Sunday, please enjoy a series of babies throwing up. The one at 34 seconds is mesmerizing. Read More

  • USB 2.0 Baby danglers

    Yeah, I don’t know what these are either. But they cost $22 for the 2GB version and $37 for the 4GB. I think I found something like this in my stool once, though, now that I think back. Read More

  • ITT phones for babies, kids, the elderly

    [photopress:IMG_1486.JPG,full,pp_image] I’m trying to find a website for these guys but these were fairly cool phones for kids and older folks who might need a little help finding the buttons. The phones are all GSM compatable and as you see there are three styles: Baby, Easy, and some sort of DECT cordless phone with images instead of a number pad. Pricing and availability are, as… Read More

  • MP3 player for infants: Just what growing brains need

    Shake the baby — with block-rockin’ beats! The SweetPea3 is an MP3 player with 256MB of memory designed for kids 0 to 8 years old. It is a “robust” music player that is clad in pink or blue “food grade” rubber and lasts about 40 hours on one AA battery. It also comes with music and stories from Susie Tallman and Jim Weiss. I don’t know why you… Read More

  • ITZBEEN: For people with babies, maybe Doug

    I just saw this little baby gadget over the weekend and thought it might be interesting for those of you who got babies for Christmas. It’s called the ITZBEEN and it’s basically a timer that lets you tell when you last did something — changed junior, fed him or her, and checked the old asscloth. There’s even a switch for reminding you which dug they little one… Read More

  • Ro-BOTS! Battle Wheels Robot Warriors in action

    If you’re thinking about a fairly cool, fairly inexpensive gift for the holidays, take a look at Battle Wheels. These are wheeled robots that are supposed to beat the heck out of each other so their parts fall off, sort of like Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots only mobile. I played with the robots with Kasper and he enjoyed pulling the heads off of both Saturnus Guardian of the… Read More
