While I’ve seen a good deal of interesting iOS device accessories being introduced at CES 2013, the BBC has a look at one of the most absurd – the iPotty.
Targeted for children who need to be potty trained, the small toilet features an iPad stand in the front. You’ll have to take a look at the BBC’s site to see a video of it firsthand on the show floor at CTA Digital’s booth.
The company is even looking into making apps designed specifically for the contraption:
“If you have a young child you understand that there are many demands on a parent,” says Lois Eiler, a company spokeswoman. ”This is just another tool to help them.”
I can assure you that no one who has ever really potty trained a child designed the iPotty. I’ve been through the journey with my 5-year-old daughter, and am nearing that time with my 2-year-old son (don’t ask how I know).
Even though the iPad is “protected” there’s no way I’d place my $600 tablet anywhere near my son on the iPotty. To any parent out there, would you?
And this isn’t to say that CTA Digital designs bad iOS device accessories. I would love to get my hands on the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” inflatable sports car that the company introduced in 2012. But I’ll say no thanks to the iPotty.
