Smart Crib Helps Babies (and Parents) Back to Sleep
USA – Fuseproject design studio has developed a wifi-connected smart crib, that detects when babies cry and safely rocks them back to sleep, monitoring sleep patterns.The SNOO crib was developed by Yves Behar’s Fuseproject studio. Combining baby safety with a stylish, calming design, the crib houses three microphones that detect when the baby cries. The baby sleeps on an inner platform, in a secure swaddle that prevents the child from turning over and risking cot death, that then begins rocking with increasing speeds to soothe the baby back to sleep. An open mesh design allows parents to see their child, and a free app collects data from the wifi-connected crib to monitor sleeping patterns (with the inner platform featuring a metal plate to shield children from wifi exposure).
