Quiet Night promises to reduce baby crying by up to 50%

Quiet Night

Quiet Night is a new device fighting for hearts and minds of new parents on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. Conceived by a professor from Bristol University in the U.K., the system promises to reduce crying by up to 50 percent.

Recommended for babies four months to three years old, Quiet Night has a handle made of pacifier material the child uses to activate 125 child-psychologist-chosen songs, whereas additional songs are available for download. The longer babies pull the handle, the more pleased by a piece of music they will be.

Quiet Night is currently available for pre-order for $39, and is estimated for worldwide delivery in October.The device will also learn which music a child prefers, and automatically adjusts song sequences as the baby’s brain develops, going from basic tones to more sophisticated, classical styles.

Quiet Night connects to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth, but it can also work without phones and tablets when plugged into an optional, plug-in base station.

The device is currently available for pre-order for $39, which is $20 off its retail price of $59. It is estimated for worldwide delivery in October.
