The Suima Robotic Crib Imitates The Motions of Human Mothers

By: AnnaBee - Published: Feb 3, 2009 • References: & crunchgear
Developed in Japan (duh!) at Kyuushuu University, this automatic crib is designed to imitate a mother’s "gentle arm movement."

It has a cry sensor and rocks side to side every 1.8 seconds, which is apparently the same rate as an adult’s heart beat and is equipped with a safety net (just in case) and remote control. 

In Japan, if you’re too busy, or just tired of being a parent, you can rent it for $100/month or buy it for a mere $4,500-$5,500. Stats for Cry-Sensing Cradles Trending: Older & Average
