Despite it sounding improbable, it’s actually a common scenario: You’re rushing off to the grocery to grab a couple of things, you’re hurrying to the bank before it closes – and you get that sinking feeling that you forgot something, but can’t quite remember. It only hits you when you get back to your car: you’ve left your child strapped in the car seat, alone, while you were out doing whatever it is you were doing.
But don’t fret. A system that’ll help you make sure that it never happens again has just been developed, and it’s called the Forget Me Not Kid alarm.
The system comes with a sensor pad that’s connected to an app on your smartphone. The pad is meant to be placed beneath the car seat, so it can monitor when your child is or isn’t on the car seat. When it detects the parent moving away from the car with the child still in the car seat, an audible and visual alert is displayed on the parent’s phone.
The Forget Me Not Kid alarm system is up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $100 will get you one of your very own.
