Huggies Brazil tests ‘TweetPee’ sensor

Yahoo Shopping

Wondering if your baby peed in his or her diaper? Why not check Twitter?

AdWeek reports that Huggies Brazil is testing a new product that would attach to a diaper and detect when your wee one went wee-wee. The sensor would then send a tweet to the parent via a special Huggies app.

Yes, this is real, but don't get too excited. AdWeek explains that Huggies TweetPee is currently in the concept phase.

According to AdWeek, the TweetPee app will launch in Brazil in July. The app will, according to the statement that Huggies Brazil provided to AdWeek, "help parents better keep track of the volume of diapers they use and provide easy integration with online retailers to make life easier for busy moms and dads." In other words, it will make it easier for parents to buy diapers.

But anyone who loves the idea of mixing Twitter-enabled accessories with soiled diapers may be disappointed, at least for now.

Again, Huggies Brazil's comment via AdWeek

The clip-on humidity sensor is intended merely as a concept device to help showcase these 10 parents' experience with the app. It will not be made available for purchase, nor are we suggesting parents are unable or too busy to notice when their babies' diapers need changing!

Regardless of whether the product ever sees action on the front lines of diaper duty, the concept is something to talk -- or tweet – about.

Speaking of tweeting, connect with @yahooshopping and let us know what you think of this concept!

    • General is most senior Army officer to kill self

      WASHINGTON  — The Army acknowledged Friday that Maj. Gen. John Rossi committed suicide on July 31, making him the highest-ranking soldier ever to have taken his own life. Rossi, who was 55, was just two days from pinning on his third star and taking command of Army Space and Missile Command when he killed himself at his home at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama. Investigators could find no event, infidelity, misconduct or drug or alcohol abuse, that triggered Rossi's suicide, said a U.S. government official with direct knowledge of the investigation. It appears that Rossi was overwhelmed by his responsibilities, said the official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation.

    • New DNA twist in JonBenét Ramsey murder

      DNA evidence in the killing of JonBenét Ramsey does not support a former prosecutor’s decision to clear the girl’s relatives in her death, according to an explosive new report revealing new information to the public for the first time in the 1996 killing. A joint report by the Boulder Daily Camera and 9NEWS analyzed exclusively obtained lab test results and reports in the homicide that remains Colorado’s most closely followed unsolved murder two decades after the 6-year-old beauty queen was found dead in the basement of her family’s home. Forensic experts who examined those DNA tests disputed former District Attorney Mary Lacy’s conclusion that a DNA profile found in one location on the girl’s underpants and two spots on her long johns necessarily belonged to the killer, which Lacy asserted when clearing the girl’s family of suspicion in 2008.

    • Photo of Kansas dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

      The photo that veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington Veterinary

    • Miami-Dade busts 2 women for election fraud

      A 74-year-old woman tasked with opening envelopes sent by Miami-Dade County voters with their completed mail ballots was arrested Friday after co-workers caught her illegally marking ballots, resulting in an unknown — but small — number of fraudulent votes being cast for mayoral candidate Raquel Regalado. Investigators linked Gladys Coego, a temporary worker for the county elections department, to two fraudulent votes, but they suspect from witness testimony that she submitted several more. Coego, of Westchester, turned herself in to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Friday morning. The Miami-Dade state attorney’s office plans to accuse Tomika Curgil, 33, of filling out forms for five people without their consent.

In this instance, after standing up to boo and being provoked by Russell Westbrook calling attention to my being overweight, my action in response was clearly inexcusable and I am embarrassed.
