smart blocks

Jason IM'd this to me this morning. Very cool technology demonstration. I like that the words spell check themselves! However I'm not sure at what age these become appropriate. What I'm getting at is when is it healthy to introduce a level abstraction? Is it healthy to warp a developing mind's perception of reality? Perhaps I'm over thinking things. (embedded video)

  1. This is awesome. I think it would be great to twist a child's mind with these. I think it would play into their imagination and allow them to express themselves in ways they haven't been able to develop before. On the other hand, maybe they wouldn't ever learn to use a paint brush because it was too much work....
