BetaKit Senior Editor and wearables expert Tom Emrich has demonstrated a lot of wild tech on CTV’s Canada AM, but perhaps nothing is wilder than wearable tech designed to turn your baby into a cyborg.
Well, maybe cyborg is overstating it. Connected baby? On the show, Emrich demoed the Mimo connected onesie, which features a cute turtle sensor that transmits data on breathing patterns and skin temperature to a smartphone app. If the sensor notices any irregular behaviour, it will push a notification to your phone so you can take parental action.
Unwilling to drop cold hard cash on an a connected piece of clothing that your child could outgrow in three months? Enter the Monbaby, which attaches to any garment to make it a connected garment. The Monbaby monitors activity, including motion and sleeping position, sending a push alert if your child is sleeping on its stomach.
