Huggies Brazil tests ‘TweetPee’ sensor

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.
