Steaming Up Foul Language

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.

Designers: Kim Hyerim, Chang Hanearl & Kim Junhoe

    this would be hacked and turned off so fast, not to mention that people have the right to use what words they want.
