Would You Let This BabySitter Rock Your Baby?
I was quite intrigued by a recent brief article (8 lines) from New Scientist, "Robotic baby rocker to relieve tired parents." It said that soon parents will be able to use an electromechanical device to rock their babies when they cry. Basically, the Robopax BabySitter is a device that sits on the floor and which supports almost all varieties of baby carriages. When a buggy is on the top of the BabySitter, it starts to balance it at about 66 rocks per minute.
The Scottish company behind the Robopax opened its website only a couple of days ago. It hopes to sell 20,000 units per month starting this summer for a price of about £80 (around $150 or €115). Would you be interested? Read this report before deciding.
