First digital camera.

FirstshotOne thing I learned at CES, was that if you're an electronics company that isn't making an MP3 player or a digital camera, then you might as well admit you're doomed for failure. I guess other companies got the memo too - because Toray Ultrasuede (the people keeping baby spit-up off of couches across America) has teamed up with an industrial design firm to create the FirstShot, a digital camera for toddlers.

It's easy to make fun of this - kids taking pictures of the wall and stuff - but I think it's a cool idea. Encouraging kids to be creative, whether it's with finger paint or home electronics is what's important. And because it's digital it doesn't really matter how many pictures get taken of the wall or half a face. It would just be cool to see what toddlers think is worthy of taking a picture of. Hopefully it won't be too expensive when it comes out, though it's hard to imagine that it won't be.
