Umm鈥 so this product has us raising our eyebrows just a hair. One super dad has invented a safe tech device for all absent minded adults who have or hang out with聽kids.聽Full disclosure: The premise of this safety device, now raising funds on Kickstarter, is a little scary.聽Starfish is a device that senses when a child has been left behind in a locked vehicle and immediately alerts the parent.

Starfish鈥檚 creator, Matthew Sheets, designed a weight-activated sensor to be placed beneath a child鈥檚 carseat pad. Once on and activated after placing a child in the seat, the device will sync to the parent鈥檚 phone through the Starfish app. The app will alert the user if the phone travels beyond a 20-foot geo-fence around the car. If the user does not return within five minutes of being alerted, the app will automatically notify all the user鈥檚 emergency contacts. And you better believe you are going to be in DEEP ISH with whoever your emergency contacts are. Don鈥檛 even think of using, 鈥淚 haven鈥檛 had a my morning coffee, yet鈥 as an excuse.

Starfish got its name due to the way it easily sticks to a child鈥檚 carseat. Just 1.5 inches round and about as thin as a couple nickels, Starfish is a small solution to what hopefully isn鈥檛 a big problem for most people. In fact, no matter how overworked and crazy your life is, the chances of you accidentally leaving your baby in your car are less likely than the chance of you being hit by lightning, according to TechCrunch. What is really happening here is that new parents worry a lot about their new babes. This is just one more product in the baby tech category that will give moms and dads peace of mind that their offspring will be as happy and healthy as far as factors in their control are concerned. For $60 a pop, any parent, babysitter or聽best-aunt-ever can nab one.

Studio Whale is seeking $15,000 in funding through its Kickstarter campaign, which ends on September 5. With enough support, the company will begin producing Starfish devices in October with plans to ship by December.
