Ku­doso Router

Mac Format - - GADGETS -

What is it? Ac­cord­ing to re­search, the av­er­age home has 5.7 in­ter­net-con­nected de­vices (Bloomberg), and kids spend around 7.5 hours a day on the in­ter­net (Kaiser Fam­ily Foun­da­tion). With Ku­doso’s new parental con­trols, you as par­ents can take con­trol of your router to make sure your kids aren’t spend­ing all their time glued to a screen. As well as the usual fea­tures, such as block­ing ex­plicit or crim­i­nal sites, you can set your chil­dren tasks and chores that, when com­pleted, earn them time on the net. Fu­ture re­leases are to in­cor­po­rate fit­ness apps to re­ward ex­er­cise, too. Since the soft­ware is run from a cloud server, you can man­age these tasks from your mo­bile or other web-con­nected de­vice. When’s it due? Cur­rently un­der Kick­starter fund­ing. Why are we ex­cited? If you back the Ku­doso kick­starter cam­paign (kck.st/1iwiyEI), $89 buys you the soft­ware to in­stall on a com­pat­i­ble router, or $119 gets you a Ku­doso router with the soft­ware pre­in­stalled. It’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind. Check out MacFor­mat’s Weekly Ap­ple Ex­trav­a­ganza at youtu.be/kTh_As8Y3RY to see Matt and Chris dis­cussing the router’s pro and cons on the show.
