Two dads from Minnesota, concerned about parents who leave their child in their car seats by accident, have devised an app to help prevent this.
The app is called ibabyseat. So how can this work? It starts with a magnet placed on the base of the carseat that communicates with a sensor on the detachable seat. It will communicate with the app on your smartphone. If you move 30 to 40 feet away from the car without the baby, the sensor will be set off through Bluetooth. The app can also call 911 if the parent doesn’t respond.
It will retail around $30 and will be in retailers (Target, BabiesRUs, Walmart) in October.
