Siemens recently announced for a development of a new concept device. As opposed to mobile phones, the MyAy device is most helpful when not carried with you. This new invention by Siemens engineers works like a mobile electronic watchdog that can hear, see and even feel temperatures thanks to its sensors. The variety of implementations of MyAy depends on persons' needs. Here will see one of the most likely purposes it could be used for.
For example: the MyAy device could be used as a mobile alarm system. Left in your car, it would immediately detect any unwanted motion through its infrared-sensors. It would then instantly send a SMS message to your mobile phone that you ought to check on your car. The same mechanisms might come in handy at a campground or in any other unsafe place.
There are many more helpful usage scenarios for this tiny watchdog: with the built-in audio sensor, the MyAy pocket-size device could easily be used a baby-phone so that these rare moments when parents leave their young ones unattended become a bit more relaxed.
There are countless fields of usage for MyAy. They all add up to one revolutionary function: they help you to be at places where you are actually not. MyAy is being tested with various mobile network providers from spring 2004.
