A smart TV is all you need for kids and young adults to watch TV online.
The world first fully digital TV system for young children.
The World Health Organisation’s World Health Organization announced the world’s “first fully digital” TV system last month, which has the potential to transform how we watch TV, listen to music and communicate.
But while TV can be a wonderful distraction for kids, there are some key challenges in how to make it truly useful for older audiences.
As a result, the World Health organisation’s TVWatch Challenge is seeking to identify and create the first fully-mobile smart TV system, which is designed to be easy to carry around and use with the kids.
“A lot of children are looking to the smartphone as a device for distraction, so a fully-digital TV solution will be really beneficial for them,” World Health’s chief medical officer Dr Maria O’Reilly said.
Dr O’Brien said the challenge to design the system for older people was to find the right balance between technology and accessibility.
“The idea is to use the technology, to be able to read on a smartphone, so you can have a TV on your lap, on your wrist,” she said.
“Then we’re looking at the accessibility of the device, so that you can connect the device to your laptop or laptop to your TV, so the TV itself is not too far away from your hand.”
Dr O’trill said it would be ideal to be ready to go for children aged seven to 12, but would also be useful for anyone between the ages of seven and 16.
“If you’re going to have the ability to use this in the classroom, you want to be sure that you have that access so that the kids can use it without the need for the teachers to be present,” she explained.
Dr Maria O’sReilly said the team had already created a prototype of the technology for children and young people to play with and was working to make the system fully functional.
“We want to make sure that we’re delivering it in a way that is accessible for everybody, because the kids are going to be the key consumers of this,” she told ABC News.
“This is a really exciting time in the history of children’s technology, and we’re very excited to be part of that.”
The World’s first TVWatchChallenge, held at the World University Centre for Digital Communication in Canberra, is set to launch in February.
