A new smart sensor called Oval has been created and launched over on the Indiegogo website this month and has already raised $23,000 or its $40,000 goal with still 25 days left remaining of their campaign.
The Oval has been designed to provide users with a versatile sensor that can help protect the people and things you care about most. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Oval smart sensor project and see it in action.
The Oval smart sensor includes sensors to detect changes in motion, acceleration, light, moisture, temperature and proximity.
“OVAL was created by a parent as a way to help prevent prescription drug and alcohol abuse. A few years ago, Rich Cosgrove’s teenage son expressed concern over the rampant use of these substances among his peers.
Given the growing epidemic of the abuse of these substances and how they can potentially lead to other drug use and addiction, Rich began to think of an unobtrusive way for parents to monitor their medicine and liquor cabinets. And the idea for OVAL was born.
Stick it, string it, or drop it in or on any object to detect any changes in motion, acceleration, light, moisture, temperature or proximity. If the sensor is disturbed, you’ll receive an alert on your phone or email. Anywhere in the world. Instantly.”
So if you think the Oval smart sensor is something you could benefit from, visit the Indiegogo website now to make a pledge from $59 and help Oval become a reality.
