Hold a Robot Baby Close to Your Heart for a Good Sleep

Technology Inceptions

How about holding a baby robot close to your heart and getting a good night's sleep without any fuss?

The device was developed by Julian Jagtenberg, a Dutch entrepreneur and robotics student to help his mother suffering from sleep problems. His solution was based on a research study which pointed out that we subconsciously fall into the breathing and heart rate pattern of babies when we hold them to our heart. The product is a result of three years of research and development, according to Jagtenberg.

Although the company has received orders for thousand units of the device, clinical trials haven't been done on it. Amateur studies showed thirty percent decline in time required to sleep.The device is quite costly at $623. Somecritics question the usefulness and efficacy of the new product, it nevertheless promises to keep some people off from popping pills to doze off.
