MOTHER: The Electronic Device. Am waiting for Dad

On the eve of Mother’s Day in the UK, I have decide to post a story on a lovely little home gadget. I absolutely love the idea of anyone inventing an electronic device and calling it ‘mother’, as its capabilities are to tell when the children brushed their teeth, whether dad has taken his pills or the room has been tidy up. The electronic device with wireless connectivity can transform any object in the home into a smart one. It can also detect unexpected activity at the front door, keep track of watering of plants.

The device uses specially designed “motion cookies,” which the company calls “magical sensors” that detect movement, temperature, patterns and more. The tiny cookies are attached to the devices the user wants to monitor.Some 16 centimetres (six inches) tall, Mother can be plugged into a home network and monitor up to 24 objects.

I cannot help wondering what would a device called Dad be capable of doing. The male reporter on the video below made me laugh when he asked: Why would I need a device to tell me when t brush my teeth?”  I rest my case.
