My 7 year old received this http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...#more-pictures in the mail yesterday. He loves it!!

He sleeps in his top bunk & now he can turn the light on and off without getting out of bed.

The board reformats capitalization? That's awesome. (Hates caps lock)



But on topic again, that is a cool gadget. Not just for kids, but for lazy people too, like me.

It's not cool because it doesn't know what it's doing. I made a thread and titled it with an acronym that it deacronized into a common word that doesn't exist.



The light switch is cool. It's good for kids who live in suburbs and have ridiculously large bedrooms.

I'm totally opposed to these kind of "gadgets".



They make people lazy and spoil energy. I partly see it as "unethical" too. (batteries)

Man, I wanted one of these as a kid. I always used to read in bed before I went to sleep so I'd get all warm and snuggled up, and then I'd have to get out of my toasty bed to go and turn my light off. I always wanted a really long stick or something so that I wouldn't get cold. This would have been perfect!!



Now I have a little lamp right next to my bed...which does the trick too

I see your point 1vegan. However, like I said, he sleeps on the top bunk and he was climbing down the ladder in the dark to get a drink of water or use the bathroom every night and it kind of worried me...and then when he would get back into bed, he would be afraid to turn the light off, so the light would stay on all night...



(He has a night light, but it's still pretty dark in his room)
