Smart Diapers?
Smart Diapers?

Parents, get ready for technologically advanced diapers! New York-based startup Pixie Scientific has created Smart Diapers which are designed to keep track of your child’s health by assessing his or her urine. You must scan the code on the front of the diaper, using a smartphone app, for testing to begin. Data from the diapers can show whether or not the infant has a urinary tract infection, prolonged dehydration or if the baby is developing kidney problems. So far, Pixie Scientific has raised over $10,000 in funding — way short of the company’s $225,000 goal. Is the world ready for smart diapers?
