New Born Fame

These days, it’s common for parents to post pictures of their newborn on Facebook for everyone to see, within the first days after birth. And yet, the baby has no say in this. Laura Cornet questions this trend and how this influences the lives of the next generation. The result is New Born Fame – toys and tools that empower babies to put themselves online. The baby can take a selfie with a playpen camera, shoot video footage from a nursery mobile, post information about those first steps thanks to special shoes, and reveal his or her whereabouts with a pacifier clip. All are uploaded automatically.
