First there was audio, then video, now baby monitors have gone really high-tech.
Rogers announced Tuesday that it has partnered with U.S.-based biomedical engineering company Exmovere Holdings Inc., for the launch of digital pyjamas, called Exmobaby, later this year.
The machine-washable outfit has embedded sensors and a AAA-battery powered wireless transmitter that beams information to a computer, smartphone or tablet.
The manufacturer claims the product can perform electrocardiogram tests to measure electrical activity in the heart, monitor skin temperature and movement, and detect mood changes.
Rogers will be the exclusive provider of wireless service for the product.
Exmovere says the product sends data from the pyjamas once a minute and emits minimal radiation. The product does not have the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Rogers says it stands behind the product and believes it is completely safe.
There is no firm release date or pricing information available.
