Health in the future: Stay connected to your baby with wired pajamas

Forget baby monitors and nanny cams - the Exmobaby, the world's first conductive fabric-based biosensor pajama, allows you to monitor your child's vital signs from your smartphone or computer screen.

The infant onesies are rigged with wireless monitors to allow caregivers and working parents to monitor heart rate, emotional state and behavior with the intent to reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) worldwide.

According to the makers of the smart sleepwear Exmovere, one thousand Exmobaby pajama kits, available in blue or pink, will first be released to select buyers from a waiting list in early 2011.

"Included with these kits will be an Exmobaby garment set, one Zigbee transceiver, PC and cell phone monitoring software and six months of online service. The company will be accepting deposits for the limited first run of Exmobaby kits until the 1,000 slots on the waiting list are filled."

And, by the end of 2011, Exmobaby is scheduled to be available to markets in Germany, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Heather Olson with Exmovere told Relaxnews on September 17 that the Exmobaby will be "competitive with normal pajama outfits" in price.

"A starter kit will cost about $99-149 [€76-114], but that includes the service for the device to connect to your computer, blackberry, what have you, transmitter and a few garments.

"Right now we are in the process of supplying some evaluation kits to people who would like to start using it before the item is marketed for $500 [€383]. The outfit itself, if you need extra or anything, will be extremely reasonable. One you have the starter kit, you never pay that again," explained Olson.

If you want to monitor your baby remotely now, techie bloggers recommend the Y-cam Black SD (€242.99) because of its infrared night vision to see your baby sleeping or building your own "Watch Anywhere" monitor using a Slingbox ($150-250/€115-192) or Skype (free), see how: http://www.techlore.com/blog/entry/25417/Build-a-Watch-Anywhere-Baby-Monitor-Using-Slingbox-or-Skype
