- When and why to use the app:

Have you ever had trouble disciplining your child as he or she refuses to do what you tell him/her to do? In such a case, a phone call from a virtual third party telling the child that he/she is not behaving himself/herself can redirect the child's attention and change his/her consciousness. When it makes the child begin to do voluntarily what he/she is told to do, it is very important for you to tell him/her carefully why he/she got the call. Rewarding the child with a lot of words of praise and encouragement will lead to building a favorable behavior pattern.

The "Ghost Call" app is not designed to surprise the child. Rather, it is designed to redirect his/her attention and change his/her consciousness. Please use the app as one of child-rearing support tools by selecting a scary or sweet character depending on the child's disposition or the situation faced.

- Situations in which the child's consciousness can be changed:

1.

When he/she wouldn't listen to you 

(Red Ogre)

2.

When he/she completes tidying something up  

(Cat)

3.

When he/she does not stop fighting with siblings

(Space Alien)

4.

When he/she does something nice   

(Ninja)

5.

When he/she doesn't stop crying      

(Baby)

6.

When you want to get him/her right to bed 

(Princess)

7.

When he/she refuses to eat 

(Zombie)

8.

When he/she refuses to take a bath  

(Wolfman)

9.

When he/she refuses to brush his/her teeth  

(Witch)

10.

When he/she refuses to go to bed 

(Dracula)

11.

(Santa Claus)

12.

- Interesting features (recording and voice changer)

Using the 12 situations expressed by actors/actresses as a reference, parents can make recordings of original sentences, such as by including the name of the child or his/her promises with other family members, so that the child will pay more attention.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
