Thread: if the phone indicates that the diaper is full

    Lightbulb if the phone indicates that the diaper is full



    The US consumer giant Procter & Gamble plans to digitize everyday objects. Among other diapers could be linked with the mobile phone. “I do not exclude that a Pampers in the future by means of sensor signals on the smartphone of the parents, when it is full,” Kathy Fish said, the manufacturer of brands like Pampers, Ariel, Gillette and Braun, the “world, research head at Sonntag “(edition of 26 June).

    You think we ever might see something like that in adult nappies?

    Or would it notify some world database? Will it become a national health issue? Would it become data in a case for child abuse or elder abuse? There needs to be a revolt against all this kind of connectivity. Case in point there are thermostats that communicate both with the owner and the maker. An update to software from the maker reset all the thermostats but did not notify the users. There were reports of vacation homes freezing up because of it. You decide if any of this is a good thing

    The data hunger of today is a double-edged sword. It can result in technical improvements but it can also be abused, which it IS in 99% of all cases (IMHO). So no phoning home is of course a must.
    Concerning the specific application field indicated in the thread title, I think it depends on the implementation. Is it "intelligent" with its own means of communication? Is it a passive sensor that you can only read out by using a manufacturer provided app (which will in turn phone home for sure) or could anybody create an app to read them (open design)...

    If we were on opposite sides of the planet, it would be the coolest thing to get an automated message when my sweetheart does something in her nappy. But if we were together it would be kind of redundant as I would be checking her. If one of us did a poo, which would travel faster - the smell or the text? I suppose it could carry additional information and useful time stamps. "19:07:30 Ms.X [stool 134g medium] [urine 203ml]"

    Anonym.to is a service that removes referrals from visitors. I usually use it when posting links on ADisc, so the targets site owners don't see where the visitor came from.

Realistically, all you'd need to do is connect said receiver to the internet, and create an app. The better question is whether you can engineer disposable sensors cheap enough to be integrated into the nappy during manufacture. I suspect that is just a matter of time.

    I wouldn't want that, what if the manufacturers or some random freak knew what I was doing, don't you think lots of abs and Dls alike would be in the spotlight when people know who is using their products, put it this way, cameras seeing or detecting adult genitalia and pubic hair for some, it's not right even for babies, are they pedophiles or something! I might be wrong and I may not know the whole story but why waste that money when "old fashioned" techniques of checking a diaper by hand is more adequate?

    Whose talking about cameras? How would that even work? The inside of a nappy is a dark environment with zero available focal length. You wouldn't be able to take a picture of anything! All proposals for "connected" nappies are based on wireless connected wetness sensors. And if such devices were made smartphone compatible, I would expect them to be Bluetooth rather than WiFi. What is the point in internet connectivity? Whether for babies or adults, it's the immediate caregiver who needs to know if the nappy is wet or soiled, since they're the ones who are in a position to do something about it. What's the point in informing a parent who is at work while their child is at daycare that their baby's nappy is wet? What are they supposed to do about it?

    I could see some applications for a device like this in some situations such as in a Hospital or a care home whereby there is communication in a local area over a LAN and stuff. But I'm not sure for every day use at a consumer level I mean people didn't needs apps and messages to say when a nappy needs changing other then the obvious notification of smells. MY final thought is wouldn't this just make nappies more expensive

    This reminds me of the Progressive car insurance commercial where they try to convince people to get "Snapshot" if I recall the name correctly. I call in "Tattle Tail" as it tells your insurance company every time you go above the speed limit, break too quickly or go through a yellow light. No thanks!
