Best Tech Gadgets for Moms
I read a newsletter called Engaged Moms and this was the report back from the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a playground/trade show for techy types. Stephanie Azzarone reports back on cool tech for mom and indeed, this stuff is cool! Makes me wish I still needed a stroller. Anyway, I was thinking this might be right in time for Valentine’s gift for mom — thoughtful, high techy, practical and useful (and so much better than a vacuum or blender!).
- Origami, the “world’s first power-folding stroller” from 4moms: The stroller folds flat and unfolds with the touch of a button. Any mom who has ever stood at a bus stop struggling to get her child out of, then close, a stroller before the bus pulls away (as I have, many times), will understand the appeal. And just to make it even more interesting, the built-in battery that makes the process work recharges while the stroller is in use. $950
- Net Nanny, known for its desktop parental control software for PC, now offers an app for both iOS and Android devices that allows parents to use their phone to control what sites and content a child has access to. $25
- For moms whose job it is to keep track of everything for their families (isn’t it always?), BiKN offers thumb-drive-like devices that attach to what moms want to locate (backpack, keys, pet, etc.)
- PowerBag is a line of backpacks, rolling luggage and messenger bags that charge gadgets as they are transported, via a built-in battery and pre-routed USB and Apple charging connectors. For a mom (or anyone) who travels on business, this is a great option… $160-250.
