sudden infant death syndrome, baby breath monitor

Hello everyone, I am a first year Mechatronics engineering student. Well, I don't know where to ask about such stuff, but my question is: As a new oncle, I see my brother & wife worried about the sudden infant death syndrome, so like the baby stop breathing when his sleeping, so like every time he coughs or so, they get really stressed. For such a reason, I want to develop for them a 'breath monitor system' For that, how shoud I proceed ? should I use pressure sensor under him, to know if he is breathing or not, then if he isn't, make an 'alarm signal' ? Or.. some t-shirt / 'chest wearable' he wear, to see if his chest is moving, or not ? is it simple enough that I can learn about arduino / sensors & do it alone ?  I had many questions.. hope I ll get some answers Many thanks !

Is there an Instructables group for assistive technology?

I'm converting a Web-page description of a project I recently built (a modified infant crib for parents with a disability) into an Instructable, but I don't see an appropriate group (at least, my search attempts have failed). Is there an AT community out here in Instructables land?

Simple Sewing Project

I'm trying to figure out how to make a hooded towel for an infant/toddler using a bath towel and a hand towel. I can't find anything online that gives instructions for putting one of these simple things together and I really don't want to spend $40 at a specialty shop to buy one ready made.

How can I create a large banana peel that looks real? A baby will go inside.

I would like to have an infant photo session where the new baby is in the banana peel.  I am having a hard time coming up with something that will look real enough and be flexible for a baby to go in. My first thought was fabric, but That will not look as real as I would like.  Can anyone help me?

House made of Tin Cans and Bottles

When Manuel Rapoport found himself waist-deep in dry milk cans, he decided to make the best of it and weatherproof his house in Patagonia. Relying on what his infant twins had consumed, and donations from local restaurants and bars, he turned the cans into sheets to insulate his house. Glass bottles were cut in two and glued together, used as thermic-isolating bricks for small skylights and windows.Plus it looks awesome! Kudos Manuel.via: treehugger

Ibler ranks? (Idea for Instructables Update)

So, one day I was thinking during school. And, I came up with an idea. What if you had a rank on how active you are in Instructables? Like for example, I came up with rankings from 1 to 3 which should be up to 10 1: Infant - 0 Instructables, 20 comments 2: Toddler - 1 Instructable, 70 comments 3: Pre - k - 1 - 3 Instructables, 120 comments etc. I was wondering, what do you think of this idea?

Think I can use this as a substitute for flour?

I found a clearance deal on Earth's Best Organic non GEI whole grain infant cereal, now mind you I don't have any kids to feed it to but  the listed ingredients are: organic whole grain oat flour, spelt flour& barley flour. It is very fine, not cereal like at all, more like whole wheat flour.  I also got one called Apple Sweet Potato with the same flours that has apple and sweet potato puree (all dried) in it. I'm thinking this would make a great base for pumpkin quick bread or muffins, what do you think? I'm just hoping it doesn't turn into a massive lump because it's "cereal"  though there are no added thickeners or anything, hmmmmm

Maybe, folks in this group who have a little blogging experience can help me out with this.  This group is made by Me for You creative folks who love to make/create almost anything & everything. (From drawing potraits, photography, any cool crafting, sewing, mod podging, refurbishing & the list could keep going to infinity, really!)

I am hoping I can share some of my ideas with you and vice versa!  I love new ideas & I really hope you will join up with me and share yours along with enjoying one's that I share with you!

Fix your old office files with skin creme that will make you younger and speed up your PC

You might have read about great skin scremes that fix all you skin problems. Maybe even of programs that fix your broken Office 1800 files. And if you are really lucky you even noticed PFD converters that convert even your old shoes to PDF documents. But I was wondering what comes next? Do we see the egg laying, woolen pig? A creme that actually makes you younger (and if used too often reduce you to an infant)? I don't know..... As you can see in my profile I am an active spam fighter, so I took a few minutes to write this little joke - I hope you are still reading this crap as a real spammer would love it! If I see spam I falg it and move on, but this time I wanted more, more fun, more replies, more everything. Judging by the websites some spammers use they even post links to freeware and open source projects, which of course makes me wonder what drives those people. Some of the open source spam I actually checked and I doubt the authors know about anyone spamming their links in forums and on sites like ours. Office 2003 file Recovery PST data recovery, PST Repair, Build up muskles fast, Skin care professional, How to look younger These are examples we see every day and all have the same things in common: bad langues skills, no foramtting, plain links and a lot of crap noone would even bother to read, let alone actually click on the links. So why do they do it? What is your favorite spam you found so far? Please no link, just a short summary! What do you think about this form of spam? How might such a spammer look like and how does he do his daily routine? Write something funny, give us your opinion or just make fun of these spammers. And forgive the bad formatting, I could not resist to copy the worst these spammers throw at us. Just noticed the links this way don't actually work in the forum but I leave them this way so it looks like real spam lol

help wanted developing cool fidget jewelry

I have had an idea for creating cool non childish fidget toys as jewelry. My real idea is to create something which could use an ir sensor to pick up someones pulse and then play it back to them through a vibration motor.. (its similar to baby's reacting to there mothers heart beats in the womb an has a massively calming effect on most people,,, to the point where build a bare workshops has the option to include a beating heart)   I submitted the idea to Quirky but it wasn't taken on for one of there projects.. I think it still has legs an could be a commercial success. being there's already a bit of interest from educators who has seen research pointing to fiddle toys as being the best thing since the carbon atom arranged itself into cool new shapes. There are a few other alternatives which could be developed.. an i think it would be awesome to develop a whole range of these things an see them in jewelry shops looking like ailion artifacts with documents about how they can help you..  I think everything about it should be play with able , so magnets textures ect ect  Here is the initial idea  ____________________________________________________ People fidget,, A lot of people fidget. A lot of the time.. They fidget during presentations, on commutes, whilst thinking of ideas and whilst being productive on the internet. And that’s not a bad thing. Fidgeting helps people to be who they are. They wouldn’t do it if there wasn’t a good reason for it. From what I understand different parts of the brain are responsible for different things. And some of them are associated with each other. Interestingly for most people learning is enhanced when there doing something. Much more of the brain becomes active when any movement is involved. Retention of information becomes greater and creativity is increased as the parts of the brain associated with these things become active. I did some independent research on the strength of the book (Fidget to focus) when I did my teacher training, And found that though I didn't have a class full of what some would deem the unteachable I did have a class full of tappers, twiddles and shakers. When I gave them all the option to utilise just a simple shaped piece of wood, and the permit ion to fiddle with it during session they loved it. The feedback I got from the use of the wooden shapes was terrific. With 8 of the 15 students “forgetting” to give the shapes back at the end of the session. And the class being more engaged during the session. The Solution I aim to develop a range of warble fiddle toys primarily as jewellery. Jewellery is now gender neutral, A fiddle toy worn around the neck would allow for an easy accessibility in comparison to being fixed to an item of clothing. Jewellery can allow for a range of shapes to suet different people and allow for a shape or shapes ideal for those wanting to play. So far I have made a shape and seen that people like to play with it. I think the minimum next step would be to make this shape in different materials to give different textures weights and looks. But what I would really love to do would be to introduce all sorts of awesome new functions into the fiddle toy jewellery. I would love to include a number of different haptic responses potentially echoing the users pulse. This has been shown to calm infants simulating a factor present in the womb I know the sound of a heart beat is known to relax most people and has been included into calming music I suspect the same as a tactile would be just as calming helping someone to come from an elevated heart rate to a calmer one in a sympathetic match. Or starting off strong and diminishing from its trigger. Iterations could include a variable trigger like an old school stress relief toy. Magnets with a ruggedized coating to avoid clicking, tracking a whole host of things which could be useful in giving the user the best tools for understanding when they fiddle and why. __________________________ For the Quirky proposal which is pretty much exactly what is above https://www.quirky.com/invent/1603684/action/vote/query/view=trending&categories;=all
