Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has filed for a patent via its Verily division that will tell parents, by way of technology, when their diapered babies have gone to the bathroom.
Example - Technology - Goes - Overboard
This is a solid example of When Technology Goes Overboard.
The world of parenting already has a notification procedure to alert when babies have gone poop. It’s called — crying. And on that, babies are generally pretty good at it. They cry when they’re wet; they cry when their diapers are soiled; they cry when they can’t sleep because their little bottoms have turned cold and uncomfortable from dried urine.
Hard - Backup - System - Strange - Smells
As for the hard of hearing? There’s a backup system. It’s called Strange Smells and Odors.
But babies even let parents know when their diapers aren’t being changed frequently enough. Parents, diaper rash; diaper rash, parents. The store shelves are filled with solutions for that — and get this: None require batteries or special hook-ups and plug-ins, or sensors and technological gadgetry.
Its parent company’s patent lays out a design that alerts parents to a dirty diaper via electrodes and moisture sensors that are advanced enough to tell the difference between the ways of dirtying diapers.
The oh-so-oblivious parent receives a smartphone alert.
Diaper - Sensor - Pair - Elements - Region
“The diaper sensor may include at least one pair of conductive elements positioned within an absorbent region of the diaper,” Alphabet’s patent reads. “The diaper sensor may also include a transmitter and a control circuit operatively connected to the at least one pair of conductive elements and the transmitter.”
In the end, the sensors tie with a control circuit, which is the part of the patented device that would determine the existence of Number One and Number Two within the diaper. Artificial intelligence, at its finest?
Alphabet - Plans - Smart
It’s not clear if Alphabet is actually going to pursue plans to develop its smart nappy....
