Baby Monitor 2.0 Features Bluetooth and USB Tech
Two bracelets and a base station
What do you get when you cram a baby monitor, radio, alarm, and a watch into a bracelet? According to designers Jessica Mendoza and Henoc Monte, you get the Sikker, or the Danish word for safety.
The Sikker setup has two bracelets, one for the concerned parent and a smaller one for that bundle of joy. Both go on a base station to recharge, and feature tiny integrated speakers for music playback.
As an advanced baby monitor, the Sikker system not only transmits audio from the baby to the parent via Bluetooth, and vice-versa. The parent can quickly determine its child's temperature through a color-coded strip.
A small touch screen display allows the parent to control all functions—even what music the baby will hear to lull them to sleep.
The base station hooks up to a computer via USB to transfer temperature and heart beat history. It's doubtful if the technology right now can provide what the Sikker design concept needs—at a reasonable price for Middle America at least.
