Saving babies. One ap at a time

Every now again I get a really great idea.

Today in the Washington Post there was an article about the tragic deaths of children dying in cars in the summer. It happens every year, and it's an act that requires no criminal punishment. When a parent has to bury a child it goes against all laws of  nature. And they will live with the guilt for the rest of their lives.

But what if we could stop it?

Create a sensor that attaches to the bottom of the car seat, that measures weight. The sensor will sync to all the smart phones that registered to it. If the sensor reads that the cel phone has been out of range for say a  1/2 hour it will send text messages out to all phones registered: 911 child in car.  

It's brilliant, simple and it would save lives.

Now, all I need is a engineer and computer programmer to help me pull it off.

Any takers.
