Microsoft .NET for babies

Slightly off topic but…

Scott Hanselman has developed an application called Baby Smash that is a WPF application that allows babies to interact with an application designed for them by “smashing” on the keyboard.

As I understand it it was a way for him to explore the WPF framework that would also be of use for is new family. By a combination of seeking feature requests and a conspiracy over at Channel9 the most requested feature was for a networked Massively Multiplayer Online BabySmash so Babies can Smash together.

The end result is that he will be developing such a feature live during his PDC talk and inviting the audience members to join in and try it.

So the image is…

A room full of grown up geeks smashing their keyboards and “imitating” a bunch of 2 year olds.

please God let someone video it!
