Baby shower alert! Exmovere’s Exmobaby is baby clothing (a ‘onesie’) that can monitor heart rate, “emotional state”, and level of activity, and send to a computer or cell phone via a Zigbee transceiver and software for PC or cell phone monitoring. The transceiver is baby-safe and removable; the fabric is made from a washable Sensatex biosensor textile. Targeted to new mothers, and also those concerned about SIDS. Limited rollout in early 2011 (the better to create buzz on the ‘Mom Web’). Will there be a teenage version for ‘helicopter parents’? MedGadget. Exmovere release. Sensatex website.
