Samsung Safety Screen
After reading a recent article in the Association of British Dispensing Opticians we have found this fantastic app from Samsung called the Samsung Safety screen which is for helping young children use tablets or phones at the correct distance.
Children are spending more time these days watching content on electronic devices for entertainment & education. While devices like tablets and smartphones are adding a lot to their experience of growing up, there is an increasingly problematic behaviour of children sitting too close to the devices.
The behaviour could cause serious damage to their eyes/vision. Some of the problems that children could face are computer vision syndrome, eye strain and even headaches.
The Samsung Safety Screen app helps children hold the device at an ideal safe distance from their eyes.
This Samsung Safety Screen app operates in the background so you can open other applications at the same time. It uses face recognition technology by using the front camera on the device to calculate the optimal distance.
When the child’s eyes are too close to the screen, the app will block a big part of the screen and advises the child to move back using a friendly animation.
It is available to download free on Andriod devices via the Google Play store.
