TV doesn't have to take a backseat this summer

Disney launches its dual-screen mobile DVD system.

To ensure that the kids don't miss too much screen time during this year's summer road-trip season, Disney is about to launch its dual-screen mobile DVD system. The system features two screens with a choice of Disney-inspired faceplate designs (including Pirates of the Caribbean and Tinker Bell) that strap onto the back of the front-seat headrests.

The screens come with built-in speakers and (mercifully) headphones, as well as a 12-volt power adapter for plugging into the car for powering. There's even a subscription-based option to filter out bad language from the programs that the kids are watching. Unfortunately, the filter doesn't work on the adults squabbling in the front seats about misread map directions. The DVD system is due to go on sale this month with a price tag of $180.
