This one is for all of you tech-savvy parents out there! MonBaby is a smart baby monitor that attaches to any standard onesie, pajama, t-shirt, or any other normal baby clothes by using MonBaby’s patented MonSnap technology. MonSnap uses sensors to alert the parent that the device is properly attached to their child, or it will do the same if the device comes undone. Similar to most other wearable technologies, all information collected by the MonBaby device gets transmitted to a mobile application, which is currently available on iTunes and will be available on Google Play soon.
The app gives parents real-time analysis of their baby’s movement level, which side they are laying on, and keeps record of movement history so that parents can track long-term sleep patterns. The most important feature available through MonBaby is an audible alert that will occur if for whatever reason, the sensors believe that the baby has stopped breathing. Rather than warning parents retroactively, MonBaby takes proactive steps to alert parents even if there is the slightest negative change in breathing patterns.
Technologies such as this one are extremely valuable to society because they are actually saving lives, rather than simply providing users with random data. Hospitals may end up utilizing MonBaby (or similar devices) to ensure active monitoring of newborns, decreasing the amount of accidents that can occur.
MonBaby is available for purchase at monbaby.com for a cool $119.00.
