Intel shows us that wearable technology isn't just for adults with their smart-onesie, designed to keep your baby connected. For some reason or other.

Intel's CEO Brian Kzranich had previously dropped some hints about the company's heavy focus on wearable technology at CES 2014, but I don't think that anyone really saw this coming.

Usually when we see something of this nature in wearable tech, the first thing I think is "Oh, okay. This is probably just a prototype or concept." I had assumed the same thing until I found out that this wearable tech onesie is actually a finished product that Intel plans to start shipping this week. So why should you connect your kid to the Internet before he or she can talk? To get them an early start on Twitter? Maybe start a blog?

The outfit, which is made by a company called Rest Devices, is actually intended to be the baby monitor of tomorrow, allowing parents to keep tabs on their child's activities from another room.

Forget listening in on the kid over a handheld radio like it's World War II or something because this onesie can track the baby's body position, level of activity and skin temperature, sending it directly to your iOS or Android smartphone.

For those who already hate how much they are checking their phone, smart mugs are available to monitor the baby's respiration by lighting up. Chances are, if you're buying a smart-suit for your baby, then you've got no problem with using your phone and you might just buy the mug for kicks.
