Unlike others that have posted here, my initial thoughts are that this is a well thought out idea. You may not have a use for it yourself, but I think the yip yap at least in theory does a good job of meeting the needs of its target audience. As someone who has both been a technophile for over 20 years and currently has small children, I am always looking for safe ways to introduce my kids to current technology. I want them to be ahead as they grow up, but not at the expense of their physical, mental, or spiritual health. I'm not saying I'd buy this device- that would take a lot more research. But it is certainly intriguing.
