Legend of the Sikker
by Mark R
I never did use a Baby Monitor in my house, but if I did, I would definitely want to use the Sikker.
The Sikker isn’t like the ones that are essentially over-priced walkie-talkies. At least, that’s what they were several years ago. I’m sure that mobile technology has improved since then. Anyway, what makes the Sikker different from other baby monitors is that it comes in the form of two wristbands.
One band is for the baby, and one is for the parent. They are synced wirelessly together, as they are to the base station. The parent can use his or her bracelet to monitor the baby’s temperature, or remotely play music for the baby via the radio. I don’t see why an SD slot could not be added for MP3 tracks.
Hey, the Sikker (Danish for “safety”) is still a concept for now, so who knows what it is capable of? Why, I venture to say that maybe they will make it so those bracelets will float in air on the base station.
Of course, I can think of a problem with this already. What if your little baby doesn’t want to have a bracelet on? That sort of shoots your baby monitoring system all to heck, doesn’t it? I guess you could cuff (perhaps too strong of a word) the bracelet to a bar on the baby’s crib, but you won’t get the temperature reading.
