My first search engine, is a program that acts as a pictorial version of 20 Questions. It is installed on a touchscreen.

There are multiple different abstraction, based on skill level of baby or child.

Baby: Single sheet of multiple common objects/concept, showing and speaking name when clicked. All are icons representing concepts. Each icon speaks when clicked.

Toddler: Upper half of screens shows search categories, and bottom half shows results found. Clicking top categories will narrow the results on the bottom half, and go down a category level for the upper half.

Child: Similar to Toddler mode, but is via words. Keyboard quick search could be implemented.

Adult mode: Goes to google with message "you can always change back if its too intense for you"

       Baby: touchscreen-driven icons   

       Toddler: Writes their own C++/Java/html   

       Child: Hacks into Google and sends them pop-up messages about how they're doing it all wrong ...
