Pacif-i the Smart Pacifier – More from CES 2015
I’m not sure if this exactly falls into the category of a wearable, but I thought a Smart Pacifier for babies was so great I had to write a post about it.
This pacifier, called the Pacif-i pairs to a free app on an Android or Apple Smart device and gives a lot of information to anxious new parents. For example, there is a temperature sensor built into the silicon that monitors the babies temperature and plots the data in a graph. Using the app, parents can record when medication was given and set up alerts to remind them when the next dose is due. Questions such as “how long have they had a fever” can be answered at a glance.
The Pacif-i also has a built in proximity sensor that lets parents monitor the location of the child. They can set the app so that an alarm will go off if the child is more than 20 meters away, alerting them if the child wanders off. This feature is also useful because it can help keep parents from leaving home without the pacifier. Even better for every parent who has spent countless hours looking for a lost pacifier, the Pacif-i has a buzzer alarm that can be activated if the pacifier can’t be found.
The Pacif-i has a battery life of one year and is slated to cost $39.00 and is expected to be available in early 2015.
