'VersaMe' is a wearable device that tracks how many words a child hears each day. According to recent reports, the words an infant hears each day can influence their potential for future success. This wearable device helps parents track their baby's verbal engagement in order to boost their child's future potential.

VersaMe is a wearable device produced by the American company 'Starling.' The device is designed to track verbal interactions and record the number of words a child hears on a daily basis. The device is connected to a smartphone app that allows parents to set goals for how many words they want their child to hear. If the device gives off a green light, it means that parents have met their daily goal. If the device gives off a red light, it means parents need to make an effort to speak to their child more frequently. While the device is primarily designed to count the words it hears, it also analyzes these phrases to determine whether they constitute a high-quality form of engagement.

According to Starling, speaking to children more frequently could ultimately increase their brain function.
