Baby Tracking Pajamas

This headline from tech site The Verge got me: Exmovere teams up with AT&T to bring wireless tracking to baby pajamas.


First, let’s give the company credit for the super-cute image on their homepage. But then… what is this again? Tracking pajamas?

Each and every garment in the Exmobaby line includes sensor technology that monitors baby’s vital signs and movement. The fully integrated capabilities built in to the clothing and apparel deliver wireless communication and evaluation of baby’s condition throughout the day as well as during critical night time sleep.

Parents of newborns receive text messages (SMS) and email alerts on their mobile phones, personal computers and other devices. These show up automatically in real time as baby’s movement and vital signs change. No extra or constant monitoring by parents, caregivers or relatives is needed. The Exmobaby product line does all the work.

This is… not… a terrible idea. In fact, it’s not bad. Unfortunately Exmobaby (which sounds too similar to Exxon-Mobil for my tastes) doesn’t yet have a retail presence. Maybe someday.
