Ever wanted to track, monitor or improve your baby’s nutrition? Sleevely is a smart baby bottle attachment that communicates with smartphones and transmits all the relevant data to the cloud so you can access it anytime, anywhere.
Supposing that neither you, nor your better half are at home for the most part of the day, and you want to make sure that the baby-sitter takes proper care of your baby and feeds him plenty of milk. After all, nutrition is essential to our growth
Ike Ofner, the designer of Sleevely, described his product as follows: “Sleevely combines a hardware device and a mobile app. Using Sleevely is easy: Install our mobile app, prepare your baby’s food in your normal routine, slide your bottle into Sleevely and start tracking. Sleevely’s patent pending technology uses smart sensors in its flexible arms to measure the volume and temperature of the baby’s food. Sleevey uses Smart Bluetooth (BLE) to transmit the data to the parent’s mobile device.”
Furthermore, the designer added that “The Sleevely project is our attempt to offer parents peace of mind, as nourishment is one of the most important foundations for healthy lives.” Of course, Sleevely can be used in many other scenarios than the one I described above. Basically, this gadget is meant to educate parents on how much and how often they should feed their babies.
From Sleevely, the data gets transmitted to the cloud, and after being processed, it reaches the smartphone or tablet of the parents. After that, parents can observe the current feeding habits and can help with forming new ones. On top of that, Sleevely alerts parents when the expiration time of the formula is near. A growth chart is also provided with the app, so that parents are aware at all times about how big their baby has grown.
Sleevely is currently featured on Kickstarter, where Ofner is trying to raise $85K in order to mass manufacture the product. Having pledged only $11K and with 12 more days to go, it looks like Sleevely doesn’t have great chances of becoming a reality. Still, if you want to lend a hand, feel free to back the project with $29 or more and you might get a smart baby bottle attachment by December 2014, if you’re lucky.
