Blanky - Intelligent Blanket / Intelligent Blanket

Blanky - Intelligent Blanket
Blanky - Intelligent Blanket

Blanky is a blanket with the integration of multiple sensors, including thermometer, weight sensor and vibration sensor.
We can notice the temperature and heart beat in real time on the stick at the edge of the blanket.
When we want to measure the weight of the baby, we can flatten the blanket on the table with the baby on it and read the weight data on the stick.
Also, an application on the mobile phone is developed to record the historical data of the baby. We can see the data fluctuating on the graph directly so that general health condition of the baby can be grasped.
