Diapers have traditionally had one primary sensor – the baby inside them, who cries when wet – but a company hopes to have its product collect data for a doctor.
A New York start-up called Pixie Scientific is developing a smarter diaper to safely monitor your baby’s health with built-in urine tests that gives colorful results as scan-able QR codes. Unlike Huggie’s Tweetpee, the diapers are not continually transmitting any electronic signals to your phone. In order to monitor your pee results, you just scan the QR code.
Perhaps my colleague Tim (E. Fresh) Eisenstadt will test it out and report back to Tabletttoddlers?
PS – congrats, “Fresh”
