Backseat GPS for kids teaches mindless compliance early on

Just in case you didn't have enough reasons to ignore your kids, here's another in the form of a GPS enabled headrest LCD for your car that informs your child of how far away you are from wherever you're going, and entertains them with pretty flashing lights in the meantime. Using Volkswagen's prototype child navigation system, children can watch an animated worm eat down the time until they reach the destination, and play games and "in-seat" exercises (hopefully not involving hitting the nearest sibling) as instructed by the all seeing screen. Personally, we'll not rest until someone develops a direct video link with the driver, so parents can yell at their kids while keeping their eye on the road. Dem kids gotta get teached.
