Babycam with heat sensors

Ok, this is not my idea, but one that I came across on Twitter: I really love the idea: a baby cam with thermal imaging to alert you if your kid has an elevated temp overnight 🙌 Doesn’t have to be limited with thermal imaging, but it may also record everything, analyze in real time […]
