Gadget Reminds You When You've Left a Kid in the Back of the Car

The ChildMinder consists of two parts: a pad that attaches to the car seat and an alarm that attaches to your key ring. When there is pressure on the pad and the two are separated by more than fifteen feet, an alarm sounds.

Andrew Liszewski came across this gadget and says, "if you need to be reminded your baby is in the car, you probably shouldn't have kids." But commenter Tech-Ninja summarizes my thoughts well:

As a parent of a one-year old and having just made my way to the other side of a very-long and sleep deprived year; I can understand the need for this. You are not the same sane-thinking, all knowing person you were before you have kids.

No, I have never left my kid in the car, but mostly because I worry about this kind of [redacted--ed.] all the time.

Me, too. There are horror stories that you can look up on the Internet, but be prepared to have nightmares all night if you read them. Suffice it to say that when you become a parent, you become paranoid about infinitesimally small probabilities. Better to have everything in a baby's life set to fail-safe instead of fail-deadly.
