The Suncubator is a simplistic baby bed designed specifically for mother's in Africa seeking an affordable way to keep children warm at night. The bed is constructed using a soft foam exterior that harnesses the heat of the sun during the day to keep the bed warm throughout the night. The design is ideal for climates with extreme temperature drops and communities that lack a heating source, such as in the barren African desserts.

With healthcare being a major issue in third world nations, a device such as the Suncubator can help to increase a child's immunity by keeping them warm throughout their slumber and thus less susceptible to sickness. The bed is shaped like an oval bucket for gentle rocking, while a Zion ink lining captures heat and retains the warmth.
