eClip will prevent parents from forgetting their child in the backseat

As sad as it is to say, it’s not uncommon to hear about a parent accidentally leaving their baby in the back seat of their car. You know how the story usually ends when something like this happens. No one wants to be part of a story like that. One possible solution is a product like eClip from Elepho.

Elepho is an established health product company who used Kickstarter to get funding for the eClip. eClip is a battery powered Bluetooth device that clips to the baby’s seatbelt or clothing and pairs with the parent’s smartphone.

If the parent gets out of the car and forgets the baby, their phone will sound an alarm when the parent walks a few feet away. It’s sort of like a Bluetooth tracker for your gadgets, although a baby is infinitely more valuable than a gadget. But that does make me wonder if anyone has thought of using a Bluetooth tracker on a baby before? Maybe I just thought of a genius new use for those little tracker tiles.

In addition to alerting you that the child is still in the car, eClip will also alert you if the temperature is too warm or too cold.

And for parents that do not use a smartphone, eClip also works with a key fob with a built in speaker that sounds an alarm.

You can read more about eClip at www.elepho.com/eclip. It will be priced around $80, but can save $20 on the final price by pre-ordering now with shipping due in December.

    maybe I am just an anachronistic dinosaur but if something is more important than your child you are in the wrong business

    the kid in the car goes where you go, you carry him or hold her hand as you walk the parking lot

    all that said, one of my boys might have benefitted from an invisible fence implant for a couple years…but not a Bluetooth fob

    I’ll never understand how a person can be so distracted and unaware of what’s going on around them that they forget their own child in their own car.

      I sometimes get all the way to work in the morning and can’t remember the drive, so I can understand it…

    I just think that baby’s excessive enthusiasm for being tagged like that is suspicious.

    I have a better idea.
    A “crying sensor” that also couples with a temperature gauge.
    If the internal temperature of the car, reaches a certain level, and
    a child starts crying, it blows out EVERY WINDOW in the vehicle.
    I’m guessing once would be enough, for the auto insurance company
    to drop em.
    I’m sorry, I still have this sinking feeling, humans are DEvolving. To
    “need” a gadget to remind you not to leave a small child in a vehicle…
    I just don’t get it.
