Dulcie Madden and Rest Devices were in the spotlight at this year's Consumer Electrics Show in Las Vegas. The company's products, its Mimo Baby Monitor and new Mimo Bottle Warmer, were featured during the event's opening keynote speech by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.
The Boston-company has gained a lot of attention for its wearable baby monitor and sensor enabled products, but nothing like what happened this week at CES.
In the video below, you can watch Krzanich talk about Intel's Edison, a new computer the size of an SD card, and discuss how Rest Devices can apply Edison's technology.
On their blog, Rest Devices talked about being featured at CES, "After introducing Edison, Krzanich brought Mimo, and other wearables on stage with him. The next few minutes were unbelievable for our entire team; the CEO of INTEL was pitching Mimo as part of the CES launch keynote. These moments were the culmination of a partnership that began about a month before, and challenged our engineering team to integrate a revolutionary chip in our products in just a few weeks."
Rest Devices is about to launch a whole new line of products, called Nursery 2.0, that will leverage Intel's innovative new Edison product.
As their blog said, "[The] Mimo ecosystem will help already great parents make parenting a little easier, calmer and most importantly, safer. With the soon-to-be-released Mimo product suite, technology in the nursery will enable your devices to communicate with each other. This integrated communication will allow for you to forget about the technology in your nursery and focus on your baby without some of those added stresses."
The company is finishing up work on some of the new technologies seen in the videos above and below, and will be introducing Nursery 2.0, with its new bottle warmer, very soon.
