Make a Smart Wearable Baby Monitor with Intel Edison #DIY

NewImage

This looks like a great project for any new Dads out there. Happy Father’s Day!

From instructables user Cryptic_Metaphore:

What you’ll need for this tutorial:

  1. An Intel Edison Board
  2. A Seed Grove Kit
  3. Edison Arduino Base Shield.
  4. Breadboard
  5. Spare Wires
  6. Internet connection
  7. Wifi

Besides the kits, you will need to make your way to Intel’s Edison website and follow their installation guide in the Developer Zone to get going with the boards, examples and tutorials. The great thing about the board is the versatility in languages and environments it offers for anyone wanting to learn more about hardware, programming and building custom smart devices for the home.

Our twist on the technology was trying to reduce the anxiety of first time parents with a few simple ideas to monitor their child without being at all invasive to child and intuitive to the parents. We’ve nicknamed this product BaBi as it has a nice ring to it!
