Pedisedate: Gassing your kids, one Game Boy game at a time

You are so not ready for this.

A new piece of medical equipment is being tested right now called the Pedisedate. Basically, it is a headset that is placed on a child before they are admitted to surgery. The device connects to a Game Boy or portable CD player (yup, not a Nintendo DS or iPod -- apparently the Pedisedate also transports you to 1996) and a snorkel-like piece swings forward and is placed over the child's nose. As the kid plays videogames or listens to music, nitrous oxide, an anesthetic gas, is emitted through the snorkel and puts the child to sleep.

Nope, I am not joking.

While I think its intentions are noble (making kids comfortable during surgery is a wonderful thing) the concept of the Pedisedate is absolutely ridiculous.

But you think just reading about this is what is so out of control? Oh, my friends, you would be wrong. Please hit the jump and check out the promotional video.

Seriously, you are not ready.

[Thanks, Matthew!]
