The cuddly 'Tedi' bear resembles any other stuffed animal, except that this hi-tech toy is loaded with monitors to deliver information about a young child's sleep, pulse and cries. This information is transmitted from Tedi to an Apple or Android smartphone app that gives parents graphic reports on this information.
Other interesting features of Tedi include a built-in thermometer to measure a child's temperature and grip sensors, which track changes in a child's strength over time. As well, the teddy is able to emit white noise, recorded messages or simple phrases.
The Tedi is available for $99 and is expected out in the new year. Considering all the things that Tedi is capable of, this is a remarkable price for parents who want an extra analytical set of eyes on their young children.
