Exhausted parents of newborns will sure remember this name: Yves Behar, due to his latest creation: Wi-Fi robotic cradle for babies called Snoo. The application with which Snoo cradle comes allows parents to monitor their child’s sleep templates, because the data is sent directly to their smart device via Wi-Fi connection. Don’t worry, radiation of Wi-Fi signal has a metal shield embedded in the cradle so that the baby will not mind at all. Of course, this option can be turned off.
A rhomboid-shaped cradle has textile sides, so that the child gets enough fresh air, while built-in strap keeps the baby in place while sleeping. Mattress is housed in a wooden mold, which has legs that look like hairpins. Built-in sensors monitor the baby’s movements and sounds, emit pleasant tones and rocking crying and nervous baby. And, very important, the rocking can’t be activated if the belt isn’t safe attached to its sides.
This cradle also has several automatic options to suit the different moods of the newborn – there is a sensor that automatically starts the cradle as soon as the baby wakes up and cries, and the low-frequency sound and swing, which is activated when the baby wakes up during the night, and the sound of a higher frequency which will easily calm down crying child.
The idea that started this project was Behar’s personal experience of sleepless nights with four children, and thus was born the cradle Snoo after five years of work, in collaboration with Dr. Harvey Karp, a pediatrician and best-selling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block.
Snoo is available for preorder at $1,160 from Happiest Baby and promises “sleep at the touch of a button,” while also claiming it’s the safest baby crib ever.
