This gadget is so cool.
Quote: Students of Design Interactions Chris Woebken and Kenichi Okada, in collaboration with MBA students from the Oxford Said Business-school, have been developing a series of sensory enhancements toys for children to experience "animal superpowers." Each prototype allows the kid to change perspective or feel empathy with animals.
They have made three devices;
  • Ant - see the ground as an ant does.
  • Bird - sense of magnetic fields around you.
  • Giraffe - that's is more like being an adult as it makes the users tall and changes their voice.
