Petimos Screens For Cyberbullies


Parents will love it, kids will complain at the lack of privacy. Adrian David Cheok, from the National University of Singapore, is developing Petimos, a bot designed to hold questionable invitations on Facebook until a parent can check them. They can then be accepted or deleted. The furbot works with the social network Petimo-World and when a child squeezes the ear of their Petimo or pushes a button, they can send messages and/or virtual gifts to others online.
