Can a sock reassure you of a baby's well-being? Perhaps it can, if it's the Owlet. Created by Owlet baby care, this sensor-lined sock monitors a baby's vital signs through its foot, and transmits the data to a smartphone app or internet-based device via Bluetooth. Parents can check on a baby's skin temperature, heart rate, blood oxygen levels and sleep quality at a glance, and even be alerted to the baby rolling over. As a monitoring tool rather than a medical or diagnostic device, the smart sock aims to help parents be more aware of potential health-related danger signs so that they can take preemptive action.  Read More

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) announced last week that it has installed ten of the Finnish-designed GoSleep pods at Abu Dhabi International Airport to provide passengers with individual sleeping quarters while waiting for flights.  Read More

A lot of kids don’t like having to put on their pajamas, as doing so means that it’s time to go to bed. If those jammies had bedtime stories digitally hidden within them, though – well, maybe then the kiddies couldn’t wait to get them on. That’s the idea behind Smart PJs.  Read More

The Flip alarm clock is turned on and off simply by turning it over

We’ve seen alarm clocks that you turn off by chasing them across the room, sticking a toothbrush in them or punching in a code in another room, but Lexon’s new Flip offers yet another alternative – you just turn the thing over.  Read More

The Wayki is an alarm clock that can only be turned off by inserting a paired toothbrush

Whether it’s smartphones, cameras or MP3 players, it probably goes without saying that most consumer electronics are designed for maximum user convenience ... that doesn’t always end up being the case, but it is at least the intention. The Wayki is somewhat unique, however, in that it’s specifically designed to force the user into doing two things that they’d rather put off: getting out of bed, and brushing their teeth. That’s right, it’s a combination alarm clock and toothbrush.  Read More
