New Bluetooth-enabled dummy keeps tabs on babies

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Parents, take note ! A new Bluetooth-enabled dummy records your baby's temperature and alerts you if they start to fall ill.

A Surrey-based company has developed Pacifi which records your baby's temperature throughout the day via a sensor and beams the data back to your smartphone.

Parents can set up automatic alerts on a special app to warn them if the temperature rises above a certain point.

The dummy also features an in-built proximity sensor that allows parents to track the pacifier's location, 'The Telegraph' reported.

Users can set alarms on the app which are triggered when a child breaches a certain distance, which can range up to 50 metres.

Pacifi comes in a range of colours and is dishwasher-proof.

The device can be purchased on the Blue Maestro website for 25 pounds.
