Mimo Baby Monitor
The Mimo baby monitor let's you listen in on your baby, check sleep status, track breathing and track body position.
(Mimo Baby Monitor)
The Mimo kimono is made of soft cotton with respiration sensors pressed to the top of the kimono, keeping anything from touching your baby’s skin. Information from the sensor is sent by the Turtle via Bluetooth to the Lilypad, which then relays that data and live audio through the cloud to your connected smart device.
1) The Turtle sends information about your baby’s breathing, body position, sleep activity, and skin temp to the Lilypad.
2) The Lilypad streams data and live audio to the cloud.
3) You receive real-time insight about your baby on your smartphone.
Fans of science fiction's Golden Age recall the electric diaper from David H. Keller's 1928 short story The Psychophonic Nurse:
"...suppose the baby gets wet between times? Suppose it starts to cry?"
"I've thought of that, too. In every diaper there is a fine copper wire. When that becomes wet a delicate current is sent - you understand I mean an electrical current, not a watery one - to an amplifier and a certain sound is made, and the nurse will properly react to that sound..."
