The Monit smart diaper sensor attaches to the outside of a baby's diaper.
Nobody likes a dirty diaper, even if it's one of the realities parents have to cope with. So South Korean company Monit has set out to make the experience a bit more bearable. At CES, Monit shared what might be the ultimate wearable: a smart diaper.
Monit created a cookie-sized sensor with Bluetooth that attaches to the outside of a baby's diaper. The sensor can detect whether there's pee or poo in the diaper and alert parents and caregivers. No more need for a diaper sniff test.
Using a smart diaper sensor can reduce instances of diaper rash and urinary tract infections. Also data from the sensor can be used to track diaper consumption, pee and poo patterns and sleeping patterns.
The Monit smart diaper monitor launched in Korea and Japan at the end of 2018. The company is partnering with Kimberly Clark to bring Monit's tech to Huggies this April.
Monit also plans to transition from selling the smart diaper sensor to a subscription service that provides unlimited diapers and personalized care service for the baby. Pricing has not been announced at this time.
Innomdle Lab, the first spin-off from Samsung Electronics' C-Lab, is set to present its new Sgnl products at CES 2018, a consumer electronics exhibition in the United States, this coming January. Now ready for mass production after a two-year development process, Sgnl is a watch strap that enables wearers to make and receive phone calls simply by placing a fingertip to their ear.
A member of the K-ICT Born2Global Centre, Innomdle Lab has focused on the development of Sgnl since its inception in 2015 and raised USD 2.2 million (KRW 2.3 billion) in funding through overseas crowdfunding platforms since 2016, drawing significant attention at home and abroad.
Innomdle Lab's Sgnl is a new type of smart watchstrap that allows users to talk on the phone simply by placing a fingertip to their ear. Sgnl can be used not only with smartwatches, including the Samsung Galaxy Gear and Apple Watch, but with any regular watch as well.
As Sgnl uses the hand as a medium for transmitting sound, users can talk on the phone without worrying about people nearby overhearing their conversations.
As it connects to the user's smartphone via Bluetooth, the device activates automatically when the user's smartphone receives or makes a call, requiring no complicated settings. In addition, with the accompanying smartphone application, Sgnl is able to monitor the user's physical activity and give call reminders.
Innomdle Lab will also present Sgnl S, a watch strap for use with common wristwatches that is capable of monitoring the wearer's physical activity and relaying notifications from smartphone applications.
Visitors of CES 2018 can experience and try Sgnl products at the Sgnl booth (No. 44861) in the Sands Expo and Convention Center. The products will be released into the market in the first half of next year.
