The company notes that in the Kid's Profile, parents can also gain access to children's usage records allowing them to log their children's usage time and see the apps they used anytime.

The tablet also has a built-in color adjustment module that intelligently adjusts the content for eye protection. This uses the ambient light sensor for multi-layered eye protection for your child's eyes.

It also has a gravity sensor to know whether the user is lying flat and prompts to encourage the user to adjust their posture accordingly. There is even an algorithm that detects when the tablet is shaking reminding your child to use the tablet when it is stable to develop a better eye habit.
