Kudoso Rewards Kids’ Good Behavior with Internet Time
Can’t get your kids to do their chores or clean their rooms? Just strip them of their Internet access, and they’ll most likely be ready to do whatever it is you’ve been trying to get them to do in a jiffy.
Kudoso is a wireless router and software bundle that lets you manage the Internet access of those in your household. Parents can add tasks and chores for the kids via its web interface. Points are awarded every time a task is completed, and these points can then be converted into Internet time.
You can assign points based on the level of difficulty of the task at hand. You can also assign the number of points required to access different websites. For example, you can set more points required for Facebook versus Wikipedia or CNN.
Kudoso is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $119(USD) will get you both the hardware and a lifetime license to the software.
