I’m not that old, and when I was a baby a crib was a crib. It didn’t do anything fancy. It was just a place to sleep. Nowadays with all the high tech things out there it’s no wonder that the Intellicot was created.
The Intellicot is exactly was the name implies a “smart bed”, for infants. The bed has unique features such as video monitoring. This takes the whole monitoring your baby to a whole new level. Not only can you hear your baby as with most baby monitors, but you can also see them. The crib has a built in video monitor that can be plugged into any tv. It also has automatic rocking, it simulates the movements of a mother’s arms that helps ease an infant regularly, therefore, can create a regular sleeping pattern. The crib also raises, the child will lift towards the top of the crib so that the person that is grabbing them does not need to bend down. This helps with the strain on a parents back who will be lifting their child in and out of crib constantly. Another feature is air circulation. It helps keep the temperature right for the infant so that they don’t over heat. The night light is soothing for baby and allows parents to see them without turning on the main room light and bothering your baby’s slumber. instead of bars, this crib has a safety window that allows you to see the baby. As a plus there is also a drawer for storage at the base of the bed. I guess that cribs have come a long way since the first. Pricing for this is not availbale yet as it is still in developement.
