I wonder if you can configure a device to only run the Sphero EDU app and nothing else.
When talking to parents and teachers I often hear the concern that they don’t want to give the kids a full mobile phone or tablet because of all the stuff that can be done with it that is out of control of the parent/teacher. And many parents are also a bit concerned about handing kids a mobile device in general.
Putting the question if this is justified or not it would be amazing if you can get a device or configure a device in a way that it can only run that one app. So when you start it the app opens up and you can’t get out of it back to the main menu of the device (probably adding a special not obvious way with password so parent/teacher can do maintenance stuff like updates). This would make a lot of the arguments parents have moot. And since simple Android tablets have become very inexpensive these days it would open up the world of Sphero for many kids.
So is there a device like that or a way to configure a device in this way that someone knows of? Might also be a nice topic to put in an article.
