CES 2014: 'Mother' device keeps tabs on the home

Looking slightly like a little Russian doll, "Mother" promises to keep tabs on any number of activities around the home.

Using small sensors referred to as "cookies", Mother can handle up to 24 tasks at once.

According to the company those tasks could include monitoring how much coffee is left in the jar, whether the kids have got home from school in time, and even whether they have brushed their teeth before bed.
