A Mother’s Sense

I showed the above promotional video to my mother and we had a conversation about the Internet of Things and what that meant for us as humans with families and responsibilities. The Internet of Things is simply about taking ordinary objects, giving them sensors and connecting them to the internet so they can upload a relentless stream of data. Sen.se Mother is an early iteration of an IoT object because the object itself is not integrated online but relies on a detachable cookie to transmit the data to the Mother ship, which then communicates with the tablets/smartphones for human interaction. We found the concept generally removed a lot of parents’ and children’s responsibilities, rendering the devices largely useless much like in this article.

For more information, see the Sen.se Mother website.
