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.

    • Julie Bowen Faces Criticism for Joking About Barron Trump During Inauguration

      Julie Bowen has come under fire for her comments about Barron Trump. Julie Bowen made Donald Trump’s inauguration more fun to watch, but not everyone appreciated her witty banter.

    • Does an injured James Harrison mean more Jarvis Jones vs the Patriots?

      If you haven’t figured it out from the headline, the Pittsburgh Steelers might have a small problem at outside linebacker. The official injury report came out on Friday and James Harrison was officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. This could be extraordinarily bad news for the Steelers. The reason this is such a concern is that Harrison has been entrenched as the team’s starter since Week 11 and is putting together one of the best seasons of his career. The 38-year old, 14-year veteran is paired up with Bud Dupree and the two of them have been creating havoc ever since. But if Harrison is limited, that could be a big bump in reps for Jarvis Jones.

    • Trump's first executive action: Cancel Obama's mortgage premium cuts

      WASHINGTON — The very first executive action by the new Trump administration wasn't a sweeping order on immigration, trade or health care — but rather to block an Obama administration that would have reduced the cost of mortgages for millions of home buyers. In the first hour of Trump's presidency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sent a letter to lenders, real estate brokers and closing agents suspending the 0.25 percentage point premium rate cut for Federal Housing Administration-backed loans. That cut would have saved home buyers about $29 a month on a $200,000 mortgage. But Republicans cast the move as hasty and said it threatened to undermine the stability of the system.

    • Years later, a child witness fills in disturbing details in infamous Miami abuse case

      Six years ago, 10-year-old twins were discovered in horrifying condition in a pickup truck parked along Interstate 95 — the body of Nubia Barahona, a girl with an incandescent smile, was badly beaten, soaked in chemicals and decomposing inside a garbage bag in the truck bed; her brother Victor was in the cab, badly burned by chemicals. The appalling case rocked Florida’s child welfare agency, which had received numerous abuse complaints against Barahona and his wife, Carmen, but repeatedly left the children in the couple’s custody. The ongoing death-penalty case against the Barahonas has yet to be scheduled for trial, but prosecutors believe the couple starved and tortured the twins for months or more — a charge bolstered by a new and disturbing statement from the couple’s own granddaughter, who told investigators that she was so terrified of her own family that she waited for years to tell her story.

    • DirecTV Now goes 'gangbusters,' and AT&T stops the bleeding

      Before news broke Friday that AT&T has stopped bleeding TV customers, Parks Associates analyst Brett Sappington tried to put a finger on what sort of subscriber numbers for the company’s new streaming TV service would warrant such a disclosure. “If it goes gangbusters and they end up with over 100,000, 200,000, 300,000 – if they end up with those kinds of figures – I think there’s a decent possibility they announce specific numbers,” he told the Dallas Business Journal. Apparently, DirecTV Now has gone gangbusters.

    • President Trump’s Inauguration Crowd Doesn’t Look Like Barack Obama’s Did in 2009

      A side-by-side comparison of the crowds at former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump‘s respective inaugurations reveals that Trump’s crowd isn’t as large as he boasted it would be. Two aerial photographs of the National Mall from the two historic days reveal large patches of white ground exposed during Trump’s ceremony, spaces crowds had filled during Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Federal and local agencies estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would be in Washington, D.C. for Trump’s inauguration on Friday, roughly half the number of people who attended Obama’s first presidential inauguration.

      In one of the most despicable, outrageous displays at a boxing event in years, Angel Garcia went on a vile rant in which a riot was prevented only because Keith Thurman is such a classy, decent human being. Thurman will fight Danny Garcia in a WBA-WBC welterweight title unification bout on March 4 on CBS in what should be one of the best fights of the year. Kudos, though, to Thurman for having the type of self-restraint that enabled him to remain cool despite Angel Garcia calling him all manner of racial epithets.
