New Smart Monitor for Children
Leveraging technology for the sake of weary (and wary) mothers and fathers everywhere is toy maker Mattel, who has debuted a new device that is meant for baby, but benefits mom and dad. It’s called the Aristotle byNabi, and it’s a $299 version of Alexa meant specifically for children.Using artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and Internet of Things technology, Aristotle by Nabi just may become you and your baby’s mutual best friend. At its core, it’s a smart baby monitor, but it does much more than just keep a digital eye on your child. Rather, Aristotle can chat with your child, serving as a teacher, a caretaker, and yes, a friend, as he or she grows older and more inquisitive.
The voice-controlled hub is comprised of a Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct speaker with multicolored LED lights, and Wi-Fi camera with object recognition. It’s capable of letting mom and dad know when baby is running low on diapers, and accepting an order via voice for more baby supplies. Or, should your toddler cry from a nightmare into the night, Aristotle can trigger the lights to come on, a lullaby to start playing, and parents to come running from the next room after receiving a smartphone alert.
