Withings Smart Baby Monitor Enters FCC Evaluation
Baby monitors. If you are in the market one (and congrats by the way), and you run an Apple flavored household, this might be the right one for you. It's been out in the UK for a couple of months already priced at £269 ($425). And now that it has a file to pass through FCC, that means that it is probably heading for a US release as well. The base station fixes to the side of the crib, hooks up over WiFi or Ethernet, and streams audio and three-megapixel video (with night-vision mode) over the web, so you can access it via the iOS app using 3G or any good internet connection -- not only when you're within range of your router. It's even said that if you turn the mic's sensitivity right up, you'll hear the sounds of your new lifeform calling to you.
