What do you think about our economy, sonnie?

Tokyo Newspaper found the way to broaden their number of readers by means of ...kids! They created a new app for iPhone that allows to change a political discussion into kids'story just by pointing the device at the article in Tokyo Newspaper. Clarifying commentaries by a funny animated character, pop-up headlines — and a boring obscure article turns into a readable item for kids! As promised, the plot of the article shouldn't suffer.

It is a nice attempt to bring together children with their parents, by the way, as with this app they can have mutual topics for discussion. As a considerate bonus, they broaden their minds and develop their intellect.

The poor children! They are definitely deprived of their childhood, when they have to discover such things like politics ahead of time! Even if it is presented in an adaptive form, discussion of some topics(as for instance, crime) might harm child's consciousness. Parents really need to keep track of the content their kids read,and choose articles carefully together with them, when using this program.

Maybe it is not that bad. If kids read newspapers with their parents, the latter can help choose the article to be read. And if it works like that, then there is nothing to be worried about. Besides it is not a problem for a kid to say that the topic is not interesting for him.
