Circle aims to add a touch of well-designed simplicity to online filtering and parental controls

Elameno, a Portland-based startup with an aim to simplify parental Internet controls, has launched a Kickstarter campaign aiming to raise $250,000 to make its product a reality.

The company launched the campaign yesterday and is currently standing at around $8,600 in pledges. The hardware portion of it isn’t actually a router, instead it sits between your router and any connected devices, meaning there’s no need to have it plugged in wherever your router is.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

By combining a physical device with managing the service via an iOS app, Circle will allow users to filter which content kids can access, facilitate time-based restrictions on certain sites, a pause mode (to lock down all Internet access), ad blocking and a bedtime mode (for setting automatic block times), and a ‘Safe Mode’. Check out the picture and promotional video below for more information about Circle.
