Behold! The smartnappy!

3 June 2015

baby Wearable technology - whether you like it or not - is the hottest thing in geekworld. We've got smartwatches, glasses 2.0, virtual reality and now... drumroll please... SMARTNAPPIES!

Developers will be writing code brown for the future of the diaper, with Intel bringing us the idea of an internet-connected nappy.

Their idea is that future nappies will have a sensor in them, so if your baby empties his or her innards, you'll get a warning on your smartphone or smartwatch. Of course, if you have at least one functioning nostril, you'll also receive a notification to your gag reflex.

Intel's magic nappy has, according to one report, a dual core Atom at 500Mhz, with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash to store. And all to capture and process your tot's liquid bowel movements! Ain't it a miracle of nature and science?

We suspect that some demented parents out there would like to tie the tech to their social media feeds, so everyone can be notified of baby's first defecation. We also look forward to the Daily Mail shrieking maniacally about foreigners trying to hack your infant's posterior. Don't pretend either of these things won't happen.

But will this smartnappy wipe your child's bum and dispose of their soiled undercrackers? Absolutely not. Welcome to the future.
