Caterpillar / baby monitor


Caterpillar is a baby monitor that uses existing technology delivered in a fun and friendly way. Along with real-time video-audio, image processing software calculates baby's heart and breath rates and sends this information to parents via wireless technology. It can be used with a crib, stroller or any area because the ball-and-socket joinery allows it to steadily wrap around bars and handles with silicone grips. With the camera disguised as a nose and LED eyes, the Caterpillar monitors the baby with a cute and friendly face.
