Moreover the price tag reads around $188. I have just two questions; what if a child rams something sharp like a pen into the screen? Even if it doesn’t fail in the field then how is multi-touch going to help those kids? Anyway if you leave the details aside and look at it from another point of view it looks so cool, but then again do the children need cool technology?
Just asking. I wish I had the money to do something about this, seriously stop messing with innocent children’s lives.
