Windows Phone 8X by HTC
The next generation of mobile phones and tablets, specifically the Windows Phone 8, has a feature called Kid’s Corner.

Large scale, this concept is called “sandboxing” and is not a new idea to computer security – it is used often for testing code in a virtualized environment. Users can install sandbox applications easily on their own PC’s at home to isolate web surfing or games and applications to ensure a safer environment for kids.
