The way my son labels things differently makes me think that his perception of technology as he grows up will be radically different than mine.

In this picture my 21 month son Cy sits before something he calls a ‘telephone’. He wants to see and speak to his grandparents in England (via Skype). In the back of the room is a TV which he calls ‘music’ because I play early morning tunes to him via the Apple TV box that’s connected to the set.

The way he labels things differently makes me think that his perception of technology as he grows up will be radically different than mine. I see a laptop I can make calls with, or a TV I can play music through. He’ll see these things as something different and will probably wonder one day why we keep some items still around when others (or maybe just an other) can do it all for you.
