With the demographic of social media users getting younger and younger, it should come as no surprise that one entrepreneur has tapped into an altogether untouched market – babies.
The New Born Fame, created by Laura Cornet, a student at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, looks like a mobile dangling over a baby’s crib.
The toys attached, however, are actually cameras and GPS trackers that post online when triggered by motions made by the baby.
Some of the gadgets attached to the mobile, which look like stuffed toys, are Twitter and Facebook icons, which post videos to the social media sites when the baby reaches for them.
A pair of shoes with an internal pedometer tracks the baby’s kicks and posts activity charts online, while a GPS tracker logs the baby’s location when squeezed.
