A new smart sock designed by scientists lets parents monitor their baby's health anywhere via a mobile phone app.
Developers have designed a sock that lets parents monitor their baby's health from anywhere via a mobile phone app, the New York Daily News reported.
The sensor-packed sock, from Owlet Baby Care, measures the baby's heart rate, blood oxygenation levels, sleep quality, skin temperature, and sleep position, and transmits it to the parent's smartphone.
The sock, which early bird backers can get for 159 dollars, features a four-sensors pulse oximeter, which measures skin temperature and heart rate.
It also consists of an accelerometer that tracks your baby's movements, and an alarm sounds if your baby rolls onto his or her stomach.
