In a series of revelations made in a new research by the University of London, scientists say that parents should give their children iPads almost as soon as they are born. They claim that iPads provide more sensory stimulation for babies than books do.

The leader of the research, Annette Karmiloff-Smith, says tablets should be part of a baby’s world from birth, adding: “They learn so fast on tablets. It is shocking how fast they learn – even faster than adults – to do things like scroll up and down text.

“Books are static. When you observe babies with books, all they are interested in is the sound of the pages turning. Their visual system at that age is attracted by movement.

“That is why tablets, which have moving pictures and sound, are very good.”

In a statement given to a UK based website, KarmilOff-Smith said: “They might put a corner in their mouth. They will then explore it physically, but then they will use it to do things.

“Everything we know about child development tells us that tablet computers should not be banned for babies and toddlers.”, she added.

Other scientists, however, have a different tale to tell. Earlier claims made by scientists hinted towards the fact that computers could ‘damage the brain’, and can even result in a form of ‘temporary dementia’.

 Aiming to ramp up delivery of its Model 3 cars, electric car maker Tesla has started manufacturing its own car carrier trailers, company CEO Elon Musk has said.

“Tesla’s delivery volume is increasing so much this week as the company attempts to finish the quarter strong. The company is now facing an issue where they are running out of car carriers. As it is often the case with Tesla, they decided to come up with a solution in-house: they are building their own car carriers,” Electrek reported on Monday.

The electric car maker is witnessing production of about 4,000 Model 3 vehicles per week and an increase in delivery volume by a factor of 3-4 in some markets, thus, resulting in logistics becoming a bottleneck.

“Shortages of railway cargo carriers, trucks, trailers and drivers are already common in the industry, but Tesla’s sudden volume increase highlights the issue even more,” the report added.
