4moms, the Pittsburgh, PA-based company that makes high-tech baby gear, has launched its the world’s first app-controlled infant seat. Called the mamaRoo, the infant seat by the robotics company is an upgrade to its previous mamaRoo line.
“Through valuable insights gained from consumers, 4moms develops baby gear that addresses common pain points,” said 4moms CEO Rob Daley in a statement. “Parents have been asking us for a remote, so they can adjust the mamaRoo without disturbing their baby while they rest or play. We’ve delivered that benefit with the new 4moms app.”
4moms’s mamaRoo is an infant seat that gives parents the flexibility to provide different positions and motions for their infants – unlike other infant seats currently on the market. The technology behind the mamaRoo was created through research conducted by mamaRoo, in which they attached accelerometer vests to parents, recording the natural motion patterns through which parents soothed their infants. Such motions include “Car Ride”, “Kangaroo”, “Tree Swing”, “Rock-a-Bye”, and “Wave” and mimic the real-life motions for which they’re aptly named. The mamaRoo also features a built-in sound system that can play nature sounds (such as the sound of a heartbeat) or give parents the option to plug-in their own music through an mp3 hook-up.
This latest version of the mamaRoo, though, is the first time an infant seat has been created with the added functionality of being controlled from a smartphone app. Available through both iOS or Android, parents can take full control of the mamaRoo through the convenience of their phones.
