Monbaby on Fox News!

Monbaby on Fox News!

Today Fox New aired a segment on Monbaby, you can view it here: smart-baby-monitor-aims-to-prevent-infant-deaths


There were couple of minor errors in the video. The accelerometer is not 140 bit, rather 14 bit. To a non-technical mind 14 bits is not much, that is unless it’s 2 to the power of 14.

Another corrections, babies don’t get SIDS. SIDS is still an unknown condition and we cannot prevent it. What Monbaby aim is to help parents to monitor their babies for unsafe conditions, such as sleeping on a stomach.

Other from those two minor errors, the video was an awesome chance for us to spread the word about the Monbaby. Huge thanks to Douglas Kennedy and his team and to Fox News Channel!

We are starting FCC testing

We just picked up a testing lab that would go take our Monbaby prototype PCB board through rigorous and thorough tests, so that we can achieve FCC certification.

As Monbaby talks to a smartphone over Bluetooth Low Energy, we want to make sure that the transmission from the device is under limits approved by the FCC. In the end of the certification we will get the FCC Declaration of Conformity or the FCC label.

The lab is in Baltimore Maryland.

Picked up a PCB manufacturing facility

We’ve picked a local manufacturer of PCB, brains of Monbaby, in Nutley in New Jersey.

“”"Established in 1968, PNC Inc. has been a leading manufacturer of Rigid, Flex and Rigi-Flex printed circuit boards (PCBs). Located in Nutley, NJ, we are the largest circuit boards manufacturer in the area.”"”

They going to start on manufacturing next week and PCB boards will be ready in 4 weeks, (if there is no delay).

Off the Monbaby technology mill – Aug 2014

The last week Monbaby technology team was busy on improving existing algorithms and finishing off a new design of an enclosure. During our live customer tests, we received a complaint from one dad, a friend of mine, about false positive on rollover alarms, caused by an overly active baby. Our latest improvements address this complaints.

Here is the video with rollover algorithm demo:

Firstly, thank you for your support!

It is quite close to the deadline and it seems that we won’t be able to hit our original goal. That does not change our drive to bring Monbaby to the market and our determination is as strong as ever.We will keep working on making Monbaby even better.

What it changes for you, is that we will cancel the current campaign, you’re going to get your pledged money back and we will start a fresh one in a month. We learned so much during this run and know that next one will be a success! We are asking you to return and pledge again in the next campaign.

Please keep your current support by supporting our next campaign. For more info please register on our website: http://monbaby.com

Gizmag wrote an article about Monbaby campaign

Gizmag published an article about Monbaby and this campaign:

One small correction to the article: “Looking like a large button, the device features a built-in MEMS 140-bit accelerometer to track motion, the baby’s orientation, activity levels and breathing.”

It should read 14-bit accelerometer.
