Forget laptops and wear this to class!

February 17, 2010

This month all the propeller-heads at the water cooler are talking about the “As Seen on TV Hat“. It only costs twenty dollars and … well, just watch the video.

At first I thought it was a hoax. Their own promo video makes you wonder, but this chapeau is for real; read the review at Gizmodo for the straight scoop. The company must be hoping to sell out before people realize the product is less than wonderful. Perhaps a few months from now some angry geek with a broken hat will drive up to 1234 Gadget Street and discover that it’s a vacant lot.

Actual TV Hat, edited onto my once-bearded head (probably wouldn't fit in reality)

I’ve been working on an article about the role laptops in the classroom, and there’s no doubt in my mind that educators are already worried about this development. I’m just waiting for someone to ask what to do when a student walks into class, sits down, puts on one of these hats, and starts watching videos.

I’m thinking about getting one to wear while my students take their final exam.
