I say Android as it seems be the most logical base to start with; it already has a large number of devices, can be fairly simply ported to work on any Android device and is open source so the framework is already there to be built upon.
    Indeed. OpenCV is also available for Android already, and skin detection is easy in that (its about 15 lines of code!). It wouldn't be a *huge* project to make such a release for someone with the time/skills.

    Not sure what it was called but you can get an app that completely locks selected items for android phones. You can log in as an adult and select what buttons, apps, messaging, etc the little ones can access and they are not able to restore default phone settings

    That looks very interesting, if only it didn't have a centralised tracking system! It'd be great if companies like Google, Apple and Blackberry could introduce such an app by default though.

    I wonder how that app handles someone doing a full reset back to factory defaults.
