Intel Smart Clip ensures you don't forget the babyIntel has teamed up with Nabi to produce a Bluetooth seatbelt clip designed to alert parents if they leave their child unattended in a car.
Everybody knows that leaving a child in a car on a hot day is a very bad idea. And that is where the Nabi smart clip, comes into play. It's a collaboration with intel and we report previously this year at CES 2015, but it's now actually gonna be a final product that's coming to market in the Holiday season At the end of this year. So what it does it's a clip that clips onto any existing carseat or seatbelt and then it gives you a readout of things like the ambient temperature, the battery life of the clip itself. And there's also an accelerometer in it and this can tell you a number of different things like if the car is moving Or if that child has actually unbuckled the clip. It runs off a cell coin battery. This will last a couple of months, but the key feature of this is when you actually move out of Bluetooth range. So, for example, you've let your child in the car or you've gone off to get something from a shop or wherever you might be Your phone will actually give you a notification, and this app is always running in the background. So even if you don't have the app open, you will continue to get the notification if you move out of Bluetooth range, it reminds you that the child is still in the car. Plus it will give you all these different metrics. If you want to find out more information about this you can check out cnet.com.
