The first meal can become a real nightmare and technology can also help to face it: at CES 2016 Slow Control presented Yum & Done, a smart puppet and spoon connected via Bluetooth and connected to an app that will teach children to eat and to spend time at the table in a serene way and maybe even with a smile.
The hi-tech device for early childhood of the French company Slow Control consisting of a spoon, a puppet and an app, available for iOS and Android. While the child is eating, sitting on the high chair or at the table, mom and dad will be able to activate Yum & Done, turn on the smartphone or tablet and bring the spoon close to the mouth of the puppet. Whenever you approach the spoon to the mouth of the puppet, interact with the lapp and the puppet to make the typical lines of children who eat baby food.
The child will also learn thanks to the example of Yum & Done what this magic tool is used for, which transports edible material from the plate to the mouth, they will hear the verses of the puppet, they will understand how to eat and which vegetables and fruits have a good flavor. Unlike cartoons and music videos, which entertain the child by distracting him from what he has on his plate and from the experience of meals, with Yum & Dome the child will concentrate on the meal, on the food on his plate, on the spoon. With the smartphone device, the screen will be completely covered by the doll, while using it with the tablet, the screen partially covered and the doll will have a landscape as a background.
