touch screens and babies

Post by equus » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:02 pm

Thought I'd try the right branch initially.

We like to show little Helga youtubes of In the Night Garden, the Wiggles, and others from time to time. She's now at an age where she grabs the laptop and various bad stuff happens.

We have an HP Spectre with detachable touch screen. Any suggestions for making it resistant to baby grabbing (ie, so she can watch for more than a few seconds).

This is not so we can leave her at it for hours!

I believe Mad Hatter has the only correct answer.

Are you trying to physically protect the touch screen or stop her from interacting with it?
