Pacifier tells temp via Bluetooth


It’s not yet available, but this could be a tool to watch for when it ships this Summer: Blue Maestro says its Pacifi is the world’s first smart pacifier that monitors a baby’s temperature and transmits the data to an app on a parent’s smartphone.

The app even time-stamps and plots the temperature data in a graph. You can also record when medications are administered, set up alerts and reminders, and share the data with care-givers and medical professionals.

Pacifi also features a built-in proximity sensor so you can monitor its location — and so be alerted when your child wanders off. In the app, just set the distance for the alarm to trigger.

The Pacifi transmits temperature data via the new “Low Energy” Bluetooth, so there’s no need to worry about radio frequencies close to your child’s head. 

See your unborn baby’s heartbeat


It’s not quite a home sonogram, but the BabyWatch Health Tracker lets expecting moms hear their babies’ heartbeat — and see a visualization of the sound on their smartphone.

On the social side, the app also promotes easily sharing those sounds with friends and family. It’s in development now.  There’s more information here.
