This Mother communicates with up to 24 digital "cookies" that use motion detection to compile activity data. They will count how many times the refrigerator door is opened, record how much walking you do, or note when a child returns from school. Attach a cookie to a toothbrush and Mother will know how often you brush your teeth.
And, like any good mother, this one will scold you if you're snacking too often, exercising too little or not practicing good dental hygiene.
A Mother and a starter set of four cookies costs $222 at the Sen.se website. The company plans open the technology so developers can create other jobs for Mom and the brood.
