CES 2019 bug Ever wanted to receive an iPhone push notification telling you that your kid has just pooped themselves? Probably not, but that’s not stopped Korean startup Monit from using CES 2019 to debut its new smart diaper monitor.

Aiming to replace the “sniff test” for good, this (reusable) wearable sensor attaches to the outside of a baby’s diaper. Once there, it promises to accurately detect the presence of urine or poop in the diaper, and send an alert to parents or caregivers. Ah, technology: you’ve done it again!
