You hear about it on the news more often than you’d think: Someone has forgotten their baby was in its car seat and they walk away from the car. Sometimes they remember and go back. Sometimes someone sees the baby and calls someone. But sometimes it ends in tragedy and a life is lost entirely too young, purely due to a parent’s inability to concentrate. I cannot imagine how awful that would be.

The Nabi Car Seat Clip is a simple gadget that can quite literally save lives, and at the same time give parents invaluable peace of mind. All you do is replace your car seat’s current clip with the Nabi Clip, and download the app to your phone. The Nabi Clip is powered by Intel, and has a built in Bluetooth sensor. It tracks when you clip your baby into its car seat, and also when you unclip. If you walk away from your car without unclipping the baby from the car seat, a loud alarm will sound from your phone that cannot be shut off until you return to your car and unclip the baby from the seat.

The Nabi Clip also has a built in temperature sensor as well as an accelerometer, to help you avoid potentially overheating (or underheating) your baby as well as keeping track of any adverse affect may lead to harming them in the case of sudden braking or accelerating. It uses a coin cell battery that is supposed to last for months, and it has a battery indicator light that will tell you when it needs to be replaced.

Originally unveiled at CES 2015, the Nabi Car Seat Clip was designed by Marcie Miller from Intel after she was tasked with finding a way to prevent these tragic infant deaths. This is the second generation of the device, with an improved app, but the clip itself remains easy enough pretty much anyone can install it. Word on exact pricing and availability is pretty slim, but it’s supposed to be available for the holiday season this year, at a cost of under $50.00 US.
