SNOO Smart Sleeper is the first responsive bassinet that boosts sleep for babies and their parents.
It is an effect of collaboration between fuseproject and pediatrician/baby whisperer Dr. Harvey Karp.
Building the trust
The main design challenge was to design an object that parents would trust.
The bassinet has microphones, speakers and sensors embedded into its structure . It sense a baby’s level of crying in order to respond with right amount of sound and movement. It was important that the crib did not look hight-tech but instead appeared as a piece of furniture that blends into baby nursery.
Soft mesh walls allow air to flow through but also parents to always keep an eye on baby sleeping inside.
Snoo also includes a swaddle sleep sack that keeps babies in the safe sleeping position that emulates its time in the womb.
