Huggies ‘TweetPee’ Messages Parents When Diapers Need Changing [VIDEO]

Looks like the future of changing diapers is about to get disrupted, if the following idea from Huggies makes it to the market.

According to Brazilian site Brainstrom9 (via Adverblog), the company has launched a new concept for Huggies ‘TweetPee’, a sensor that attaches to a baby’s diaper with a humidity sensor. When your baby urinates the sensor detects it and will send a tweet to parents’ Twitter accounts. Mind. Blown.

The included app also keeps track of diapers used during the day and also includes options to buy more online when stocks run low.

Although just a concept at this point in time, it sounds interesting. But how healthy would it be to have a device connected to your baby at all times? Check out the video below (it’s in Portuguese):

Would you be interested in something like this for your baby?

    You don’t need a message sent from the diaper to tell you when it’s been loaded. All you have to do is feel the outside of their pants and you can tell whether it needs to be changed. I’m all about utilizing technology to make life simpler but I wouldn’t use this. There are already enough concerns about the impact on wireless signals on us that I wouldn’t attach one to my daughter’s diaper.

    If I attached that thing to my daughter’s diaper, it would be about 30 seconds before she’d take it off and feed it to the dog. That could lead to some interesting tweets….
