Who says you shouldn’t exposure your infant to low level EM fields and radiation as soon as possible? Introducing the worlds first Smart Baby Onesie called Exmobaby! It may have been inevitable, but let’s face it- it’s pretty cool! You can wash it, recharge it, wirelessly transmit data with it… heck you might even be able to turn your baby into walking talking flash drive! Gone are the days of the “old-fashioned” wireless baby monitors that merely transmit audio of your baby as it sleeps, squirms, and squeals. Now you can measure it’s ECG, temperature, movement, and have it updated constantly to your mobile phone! Wonderful invention or ultimate hover-parenting tool for turning your baby into a Tamogatchi?
This next generation baby monitor is designed to monitor your baby’s every movement, heart beat, and temperature fluctuation and transmit it wirelessly to your cell phone, computer, or tablet. The software can also record physical states and attach a motivation like hunger, tired, cranky, and ironic (for all the hipsters having babies these days). So you no longer have to guess at what your baby is trying to tell you with its mouth. Now you can just look at your phone to find out. “No no child, be quiet, Mommy’s trying to see what her phone says you need.”
Designed to keep mothers connected to their children while they are at work by providing active monitoring and soon to be released on Think Geek (ok… maybe not). It has some actual uses beyond uber-geek parenting though, since it constantly monitors the infant it will help with children who require active cardie-pulminary monitoring and who have conditions that require constant attention. Also it is being marketed to parents who are worried about sleep apnea, choking, and other dangers that relate to the dreaded SIDS.
They may be tugging at the heart strings of first time parents and appealing to our inner geek, but this new device is a step forward in wearable technology and medical monitoring devices and could actually make a big difference for some parents and especially for infants with serious medical conditions. I wonder what kinds of in-app-purchases their software will come with? What will the virtual currency be called? BabyBucks gets our vote!
