While not unique to the Blu-ray portion of Kaleidescape’s system, what is unique to their system is an interface geared entirely towards children. Kaleidescape’s research found that a high-percentage of the most-watched movies on their systems were kid’s movies like Toy Story, Cars and Finding Nemo, so they looked for a way to make it easier for this demographic to enjoy the Kaleidescape experience. At CEDIA this year, Kaleidescape rolled out its Child Remote ($39), which brings up a simplified, graphics-only, on-screen interface displaying only movies that have been added to a new “Child Collection.” Having lived with this for a while now, I can tell you that it is an amazingly simple yet powerfully cool feature. My 4-year old, Lauryn, loves being able to use her remote to pull up her collection to watch her movies. It is very empowering for her to be able to embrace ownership of the technology, plus I don’t have to worry about her stumbling across Aliens or Die Hard and any other movie that doesn’t belong in her collection or damaging my principal – far more expensive – remote.
