theodp writes “SIMsystem have created the world’s first electric underpants that let you know that you’ve got issues by texting. Incontinence issues, to be more precise. The new-and-improved skivvies come equipped with a sensor strip that alerts caregivers to wetness via text message. From the technology summary: ‘The SIMbox, when fitted into the individual resident’s stretchpants (SIMpants), transmits sensor readings from the SIMstrip in the SIMpad® over a wireless network to the SIMserver. The SIMsystemManager software running on the SIMserver then detects key information about continence events and determines when to alert care staff about an event requiring attention.’ So, who’s going to start an open source project?”
