Rest Devices (RD) is currently taking pre-orders for its Mimo smart baby monitor on the Dragon Innovation crowdfunding platform. They are planning to launch this amazing product nationwide in early 2014 so are trying to get the word out now. A crowdfunding platform will allow Rest Devices to be able to introduce this newest idea to the market, solicit valuable feedback, and make friends while doing so. They are hoping that the friendships they make with parents when their baby is small will last a lifetime as new developments are released by the organization.
This smart baby monitor will change the way that parents think about, interact with and learn all about their baby. It consists of Rest’s machine washable, non-contact sensors applied to an organic cotton onesie. This device shows parents their baby’s breathing, skin temperature, body position and activity level in real time. It also streams live audio. It does everything right from a parent’s smartphone.
RD wants this monitor to be able to reassure the parents and provide them with the freedom to connect to their child from anywhere. Their plan is for Mimo to allow parents to rest better knowing that their baby is safer due to this product.
In order to get parents interested, some explanation is required. First, the cotton baby body suit, the onesie, is developed with non-contact machine washable sensors that measure baby’s respiration. The onesie is paired with the Mimo Turtle in order to monitor a baby’s respiration, skin temperature, body position and activity level. This data is distributed to the Mimo Lilypad Base Station utilizing infant-safe Bluetooth Low Energy.
The Lilypad connects the Turtle to the in-home WiFi; this way baby’s data is processed in real-time using algorithms. With the Lilypad microphone, you can even hear your baby’s sounds right on your smartphone in real-time as well.
Parents can use the smartphone app to do three separate things:
1. See baby’s data in real-time;
2. Set alerts in case of changes;
3. View trends and analytics about their baby’s sleep patterns and ore over time.
The application has been designed for both iPhones and Android devices.
The Mimo is being constructed right in the USA, in the Greater Boston Area. Rest Devices has built in the highest safety precautions into this device. The products are water-resistant, there are no choking hazards to fear and the products can be chewed on without trepidation by new mothers and fathers. They also lowered the transmission power released by the Bluetooth Smart; being comparable to other baby monitors on the market today.
Pricing is also right in range. Starter packages can be pre-ordered for $200. The package includes three Mimo baby body suits, one Lilypad base station and one Turtle. You could get the products to your door as they are released. This product will be available in retail stores in January of 2014 nationwide, but parents that pre-order can get them sooner.
As technological changes continue to occur, products like Mimo are being released to the market. They are designed with parents in mind. They would like parents to be able to interact, bond with and learn about their baby so as to carry that relationship well into the future.
