Chip Shot: B-roll and Photos, Intel Car Seat Clip and App

The Intel Smart Clip is a prototype car seat toddler tech device. It has a built-in Bluetooth sensor that alerts your mobile device if your baby unbuckles herself, or if she’s too hot or cold or if the battery is low. The most important feature, however, is that it will send an alert should the Smart Clip still be enabled while falling out of range with the smartphone, preventing a forgotten passenger left behind. The device and accompanying app remarkably went from concept to a full working demo in just a few weeks leading up to the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, thanks in part to 3D printers that were able to make the clip in rapid fashion. This b-roll highlights both the prototype and the Intel team behind it, including team leader Marcie Miller, a new mother and an engineer at Intel.
