Suima Auto Rocking Cradle is a cot with an integrated rocking motor. It senses distress signals like crying and starts rocking in a synchronised motion designed to get bubba back to sleep. Click on the videos (baby faces) on the site and you’ll see that it actually seems to work. Hmm…I don’t think we need to say any more really, do we? Not cheap, peeps, at around $4,255.00. [Via]
The Suima does the rocking for you based on an embedded sound sensor that detects crying noises. It’s programmed to start with a quick-paced rocking, then slowly settles into the pace of the mom’s heartbeat; and eventually, it rocks slower and slower to a more sleep-inducing pace. If all goes according to plan, the baby should be asleep again within 15 minutes.
