Say What? The iPotty

iPotty - Julie Jacobson
Here's a gadget I just have to share. The iPotty was recently featured at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Here is an excerpt taken directly from the Associated Press:
Toilet training a toddler is no picnic, but iPotty from CTA Digital seeks to make it a little easier by letting parents attach an iPad to it. This way, junior can gape and paw at the iPad while taking care of business in the old-fashioned part of the plastic potty. IPotty will go on sale in March, first on Amazon.com.

There are potty training apps out there that'll reward toddlers for accomplishing the deed. The company is also examining whether the potty's attachment can be adapted for other types of tablets, beyond the iPad.
"It's novel to a lot of people but we've gotten great feedback from parents who think it'd be great for training," said CTA product specialist Camilo Gallardo.
WHO IT'S FOR: Parents at their wit's end.
PRICE: $39.99
I don't really know what to say about the iPotty... well, yes I do, but I'll have to come back to it. This might be some interesting fodder for child advocacy groups !
