Teary / Clip type device and application


The hardest part is baby-sitting. Parents endure the high stress level with the constant baby cry. Although it is the mean of communication for infants, most parents fail to understand it. They want how to listen to baby’s cry and know what a baby wants.

‘Teary’ is the smart phone application that detects the frequency of baby’s cry, visualizes it and eventually tells what a baby wants. With the app, parents can instantly interpret a baby’s cry and makes it easy to communicate with a baby.

‘Teary’ develops the algorithm to convert baby’s crying to doodle and text.
