Beyond CES 2016: Cocoon Cam

Cocoon Cam checks your baby's heart rate and temperature without a wearable.  (Wearable, 3/12/2016)
Patent pending. The system consists of a $299 baby camera and monitor and a $9.99 subscription to Cocoon Cam's software, based on Dropcam's business model. The companion smartphone app provides you with both video and your baby's vitals so you will get an alert if the baby's temperature rises or if he/she is sleeping in an incorrect position e.g it if the baby rolls onto its tummy.

Bottom line:  I think it's possible for parents to be perfectly happy and kids to grow up perfectly healthy without the increasing intrusion of home technology.
