Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Plastic ATar, then an ipad that played musical notes. And finally in I've had with an app that rewarded the kids with lights colors and sounds so two very specific time of the research. Assistant will ask the child to give what they're playing with back to give it to the research research assistant. Sixty six percent of the time with their traditional toy the child will do just that with the ipad that simulates that they give it back almost with the same frequency. But with the ipad app that when they push on it, if does all kinds of things they're much less likely to give it back with the more interactive ipad app, the percentage of kids willing to hand it back to the researcher dropped from sixty percent to forty five percent. It's that much more engaging. It's that much more engaging. And that's what we find in the laboratory. It's engaging by design Tristan Harris told us in a story we reported more than a year ago. There's a whole playbook of techniques that get used to get using for the product for as long as possible. Harris is a former Google manager. Who is one of the first Silicon Valley insiders to publicly acknowledge that phones and apps are being designed to capture and keep kids attention. This is about the war for attention, and where that's taking society, and where that's taking technology. You know, it's one thing for adults four kids. This is a whole other thing. That's where this gets particularly sensitive is developmentally. Do we want this.
