CES 2015 has been quick to support parents of young children, from the momaRoo to the Baby Glgl. Next to present their newest tool to new parents were Blue Maestro with their Pacif-i Bluetooth pacifier for babies.

The dummy also contains a built-in tracker so if the baby drops it you won’t stumble across it several days later. Free apps for IOS and Android will be released to allow parents and carers to manage the dummy’s measurements and medication for the child, for example. Watch the video above for a look at the upcoming Pacif-i.

This could be a boon for anyone struggling to get ready with no mirror, or anyone needing to send a quick text while they rush to get ready. Of course, the brush also aims for the social media crowd, many of whom will love the ease of use you will be able to take selfies with the brush.

CES 2015 has shown us a number of useful gadgets for parents of young families, such as the mamaRoo. The Baby Glgl from the team behind the ‘Smart Fork’ – Slow Control – is a ‘smart’ baby milk bottle, which comes coupled with an app. The bottle allows parents to combat issues that children can receive from baby bottles such as excess air consumption and colic. It does this by providing feedback on a number of things such as whether you’re holding the bottle at the right angle and how much the child has drunk. This could provide peace of mind and improved control for parents and carers of children. Watch the video above to see a demonstration of how the bottle works.
The Baby Glgl is to be released in 2015. For more information and to sign up for email updates on the product, visit Slow Control.
While smartphone cameras have been improving rapidly in recent years, even top-of-the-line devices can fall short of the visual effects we really need.

The lens offers 4 options – Fisheye, Wide-Angle, 10x Macro and 15x Macro. The device will take the iPhone’s photography and video-making capabilities up a couple of notches, and comes with a free clip and Lanyard for easy carrying and switching when you’re on a selfie spree. Watch the video above to see the device in action.

Picture this: you’ve just left work into the cold darkness and can’t wait to get into your warm car. You walk into the busy car park and it hits you – you can’t for the life of you remember where you parked. What if, in true James Bond style, you could pull back your sleeve, hit a button on your smartwatch and have your car flash its headlights and illuminate itself in the darkness? This sort of life-saving idea is that Hyundai are aiming to achieve in their new Blue Link smartwatch and smartphone app. The app will allow you to have your car flash its headlights, unlock and lock its doors, and beep its horn among other features, all remotely and securely. Check out the video above to see a demonstration of the app in action.
The Blue Link app is available now for use with compatible Hyundai vehicles. Visit Hyundai to find out more.
