GameBoy accessory sedates children – seriously

38 second read


Okay this is easily the most bizarre gaming accessory that I have ever seen.

The PediSedate is a unique looking piece of headgear that pumps nitrous oxide into the wearer while they play games. It has honestly been designed to calm and distract a child before undergoing dentistry or surgery.

Now while I am all for calming me down before dental examinations I do find it slightly disturbing that these sorts of devices exist. Mind you the next time my daughter runs past screaming I may just place an order.

    Paedophiles around the world rejoice….

  • Cool idea, but how does it administer the dosages and
    do they really trust non-docters with this stuff?
    They do realize that you can OD on nitrous, don’t they?

    I was thinking the exact same thing :blink:

  • Ah okay, so it is indeed a doctor-superfized thing.
    Didn’t quite get it until i went and read the article
    itself. :blush:
    But ja, a home-made bong version would have a couple of
    mates of mine singing praises from rooftops 🙂

    But why nitrous. A gameboy alone would bore me into
    a coma :tongue:
