It’s almost impossible to monitor the kind of abusive and foul language kids use in online chatrooms these days. So when the analogy of difference in temperatures steaming up a window was explored, designers Kim Hyerim, Chang Hanearl & Kim Junhoe came up with the Steamy Window application. The system basically auto-detects abusive and foul language used during chats and steams up the user’s display window. With children finding innovative ways to crack the parental-control code on computers, this should work out as a good solution. What do you say?
Steamy Window is a 2012 red dot award: design concept entry.
