Nabi Smart Clip baby seat monitor

10 of 11

A rather more useful application of Intel Curie is the Nabi Smart Clip baby seat monitor that aims to combat the problem of children dying after being left in their car seats.

It works by sending an alert to the parents’ phone if they walk away from the car while the clip is still fastened, and doesn’t stop sending out the alert until the clip is unfastened. It also includes a temperature and motion sensor and has a small battery that will last several months.

The Nabi isn’t the first smart baby seat clip but it is the first to use an app-based alert system rather than a dedicated dongle. We’re yet to learn when the device will be available and how much it will cost, though.
