All forms of violence can affect children, physical or verbal† And to show that words can be as hurtful as gestures, Korean students have come up with a special doll. Light on this brilliant invention.
When verbal abuse is less visible than beatings, it is just as painful. Indeed, they can affect children’s self-esteem and seriously affect their mental well-being.
This is what these young people from Pusan University in South Korea wanted to bring to the attention. After several months of research, they created a baby with a surprising peculiarity: it responds to words… literally covered in bruises.
Goal ? Warn parents about the consequences of so-called ‘normal’ violence. This invention is possible thanks to a speech recognition tool connected to small purple LEDs.
