iPotty, because toddlers, iPads, and toilets all mix really well

By 01.14.13

I fortunately do not have a toddler. I say “fortunately” because, among other things, those little monsters can pee. Seriously, your average toddler has a pretty surprising range and shockingly good aim for a tiny creature.

I bring this up not as a form of contraceptive, but to explain my profound skepticism about the iPotty, the latest argument that maybe this iPad thing has gone a little too far.

The basic idea behind the iPotty is that you can make teaching a small child to not take a dump in their pants fun by adding an iPad.

So, basically, you can take toddlers, noted for their ability to smear their digestive byproducts on just about anything, sit them down in front of a $500 device where they’re supposed to leave said digestive byproducts, and they’re supposed to be distracted while going to the bathroom.

I can see a few things wrong with this plan.

But, hey, at least you can teach your kids the etiquette of using a cell phone on the john early in life, important skills that they will need when entering the working world.

About Dan Seitz... Dan Seitz is a semi-professional nerd (he'll have to code a homebrew game for the NES before he goes pro). He grew up fiddling with video game systems, computers, cameras, and other technology you should never hand to an eight-year-old if you want it back in pristine condition. Currently, he lives in Boston with his girlfriend, her cat, a Shih Tzu, and far too many objects with processors.
