Here's a gizmo I ran across that is intended for a kid's night light. But I got to thinking, how much fun it might be to design images for this specific purpose -- not necessarily for kids! That got me thinking!
While it's a great creative idea-starter, it's also a good idea for sending kids off to dreamland, and actually make them look forward to going to bed rather than rile against it night after night. Created by Zapporoo and available at no cost, Night Lamp App is a simple and easy-to-use app that displays a kid-friendly image, such as a beloved animated character, favorite place, cherished photo, landscape scene and so on, in one of two ways:
* Splashed across a bedroom's walls, floor and ceiling by using an iPhone projector.
* Featured in high resolution on the iPhone's screen.
The app can be pre-loaded with several images, which lets parents (or parents and children together) choose the one that is most suitable in a matter of seconds.
What's more, unlike conventional night lights that stay lit throughout the night - and can therefore disrupt sleep duration and quality - Night Lamp App 1.0 has a built-in timer that lets parents choose when the app should auto-lock or shut down. Settings include: 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, 120 minutes, 150 minutes and 200 minutes. While all parents will appreciate this handy shut-down feature, it will be especially valued by parents of kids who are afraid of the dark.
Ron Medlin of Zapporoo commented
We tend to forget as adults that bedtime is a different experience for kids - some are too excited to sleep, others are restless, and many are anxious or just not in the mood to shut down for the day ... However, kids need enough quality sleep every night, or else their health and development is at risk. Night Lamp App is a simple, delightful and enjoyable way for parents to send their kids off to sleep. It's perfect for infants, toddlers, school-aged kids, and even tweens, teens and adults who want to turn their room into an imaginative wonderland!
