Las Vegas - The Baby Tech Summit, held during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, takes place this week and much of the focus is on the "Millennial mom and dad." Digital Journal looks ahead.
According to CNET, the Baby Tech Summit (#BabyTechCES) is promoting sensors, artificial intelligence and apps at parents to be and those with babies or young children. The event promises a MommyTech television Studio, together with discussions around hot topics and different speakers. The technologies on offer include fertility, pregnancy, parenting and baby tech.
Talks include:
Tech Redefines the Millennial Mom;
Pink, Blue or Smart? Today’s High-Tech Nurseries;
Get Pumped for 21st Century Breastfeeding.
As with other similar shows there are awards. These are hosted by a parenting website called The Bump. The finalists include Elvie, a $200 kegel exercise tracker; Kaishi, a $75 heart-rate monitor for pregnant women; and Ava, a $200 fertility tracking bracelet. Last year's awards, from the inaugural event, are shown below:
With the 2017 finalists:
Elvie is an exercise tracker and app that is revolutionising how women look after their pelvic floor muscles.
Kaishi is a fetal heart-rate monitor for pregnant women that connects via BLE to a smartphone app. It allows expecting families to listen to their babies’ heartbeat on their phone, record it and share it over social media.
Ava is a fertility tracking bracelet that detects five fertile days per cycle in real time — more than any other method. It brings together sleep, stress, and menstrual cycle monitoring into a single device.
Also in the running is REMI, which is a smart alarm clock that coaches kids to sleep better; The Smart Nursery 7 is a portable Wi-Fi video baby monitor that comes with the market’s first rechargeable camera, as well as a seven-inch touch screen monitor; and the TempTraq wearable, bluetooth temperature monitor which continuously senses, records and transmits a bay's body temperature for up to 48 hours.
How successful 'baby tech' will be remains to be seen. The Baby Tech Summit is a small part of the whole show and will be competing with smart consumer home products and the latest virtual reality gadgets. The event runs January 5th to 7th at the The Venetian, Las Vegas, U.S.
