The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is happening right now. It is one of the biggest events  surrounding electronics and technology with over 20,000 new products being introduced during the show. The tagline to CES is “Explaining CES to someone who hasn’t attended is like explaining particle physics to a cat.” The takeaway from that statement is that CES is a big deal. This is where Intel chose to introduce the Smart Clip.

The Smart Baby Clip is a Bluetooth seatbelt clip that alerts you if you’ve left the baby in the car. It can also provide your baby’s temperature and tell you if the car is moving. It is a way to keep track of your baby in the carseat. The real reason behind the device is that babies have been left in cars and have died as a result. One such situation happened in the parking lot at Intel.

If you haven’t heard details on a person leaving a child in the car, you may think this innovation is unnecessary and we just need better parents. In reality, we all forget things and we shouldn’t move too quickly to assess someone else’s life. There was a story in our area about a parent who forgot their child in the car and the child died because it was such a warm day. The background of the story is that the family has a special needs child and the demands of caring for that child put the parents in a stressed and sleepless state. They were out of routine and a different parent was to take the other child to daycare. Imagine the horror when the daycare calls inquiring about the child. How does a family recover from that?

Leaving a child in a car one time is too many times. CES is a great place to introduce a valuable technology product that can save children’s lives and the health of families. Intel is helping to solve a problem with the use of technology. Very smart.
