WhenDi, IoT-Empowered Collaborative Baby Care #WearableWednesday
Not a parent, but this project from Ish Ot Jr. on Hackster.io seems like it could be pretty helpful:
My wife and I recently had a baby, and often find that when we hand off responsibility for her to each other, we lack the necessary context possessed only by the previous caregiver, e.g. when she last ate, had her diaper changed, or how much/when she last slept. When I learned about NXP’s Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit it seemed like the ideal platform to prototype my idea – a robust wearable that users can keep on their wrists like a watch, so that they never have to wonder where they left it or fumble around for it while already trying to hold/feed/sooth a baby. In conjunction with the Atmosphere cloud-based IDE, I was able to quickly realize a sophisticated prototype of my planned functionality. 💭👶📟💡
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
