BG,

You might have something there. Keeping on top of the chores of parenthood could help, bigtime.

However...

Matalan1 has a point. Drowning a newborn in today's wireless world, that close, at all times is not good.

Nuvation is quite right, I think. Such a device would sell as fast as it went on the shelves. Not prinmarily because of the function, but because of the :cool" factor. That is just the way some consumer products work.

Now as for all of those frightfully neurotic folks in a panic about the safety of the device. NO, it will not be safe! Clearly the communists will modify the RF generation circuits to modify the baby's genetic code so that it becomes a republican when it grows up. Anybody could see that as the only possible reason for selling such a product.

#2!!!

What is far more valuable, as a father of 6, would be a method for detecting #2 in the diaper.  #2 lingering for any length of time is the main cause for irritation/rash/pain, in my experience. 

This would be worth a high price, to me.  Happy backside = happy baby = happy parents.

Seems to me that parents are paying more attention to their smartphones than to their children. Mother Nature has already given parents all the tools they need. Look, feel, sniff, and listen. But if you wait too long to use the first three and made your baby cry, then shame on you!

Sorry if I posted this wrong.

matalan1, I agree. Even if it turns out to be safe, would you want to be the one to find out? Not me.

Nuvation, I agree..they will buy anything and everything that can benefit the child. No problem there. I just do not think this qualifies as one of those things. Technology should not replace good old fashioned parenting. That whole idea kinda scares me.

Cabe, too funny! Just because there CAN be an app for that doesn't mean there SHOULD be!

I wouldn't put a radio signal emitter close to a baby's sensitive part. It may have some effect on a newborn.

But we all know that new parents will buy ANYTHING! I bet the tweetPee would sell like hotcakes!

I would like to keep my personal life private. Not let my twitter thread broadcast what private things I am doing.

While the are at it, they should look into TweetToilet, TweetShower, and TweetTP. Why not let the world know... dawning of a new age!

The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
