Baby Dodge - Smart Material for Diaper

Baby Dodge is such a product that uses the technology of smart material. It is a diaper for children that can remind parents of changing it regularly. Baby Dodge works in a simple and effective principle. It takes use of the material that will react with the air. As long as it is exposed to the air, it will start to fade until it becomes completely transparent. This material is contained in a small stick on Baby Dodge. When parents tear off the stick, the chemical reaction will start. After 3 hours, the color on the stick will fade away and make the parents know that it’s time to change the diaper.
