Watch An Adorable Toddler Instantly Identify Fonts

I learned two things while watching this aww-inducing video. Scarlett, the cute two-year-old girl in the video, is a genius child with an eagle eye for instantly recognising typefaces better than most humans and that it’s going to be awesome to be a parent because you can teach your kid whatever the heck you want them to learn.

Man Is Stuck In South Korea After His Kid Doodled All Over His Passport

A Chinese man and his four-year-old son are apparently stuck in South Korea because his son used his old man’s passport as a drawing book. Seriously.

Video: The best thing about having kids is making them like all the things you like and getting them to do things that you wished you did as a kid. Like dress up as a mini Predator.

This Little Kid Is Better At Yo-Yo Than I Am At Anything

A Remote Control Brake That Stops A Kid's Bike In Its Path

Mastering balancing is only half the challenge of learning to ride a bike. Knowing how and when to apply the brakes is the other half. And like a driver’s ed car that features an extra set of pedals for the front passenger, the MiniBrake gives parents a wireless remote control for the brake on their child’s bike.


Predict What Your Future Children Look Like In 'Virtual Embryos'

Remember those slightly horrifying sites that mash up two faces to tell you what your hypothetical babies might look like? With genome sequencing and “virtual embryos”, we might actually be able to do that — using science. Those days are not quite here yet, but New Scientist has an intriguing report about a company called GenePeeks. We already screen for common genetic disorders by testing the DNA of prospective parents.
