Bert Vuylsteke a student at Ghent University has created a concept robotic babysitter which is currently in its early stages of development but is already taking shape to provide a fantastic Internet of Things connected robot.
Watch the two videos below to learn more about the Raspberry Pi and Arduino powered robotic babysitter which has been designed to fulfil all your remote babysitting needs thanks to its smartphone companion application.
Sleepbuddy is a friend or safeguard from nightmares, but it is so much more for the babysitters or parents. The babysitters or parents connect their smartphone/tablet/PC to the Sleepbuddy. This will give them access to control all his emotions, gestures, microphone, speaker and camera. In the eye is a hidden camera to see the kids sleeping. The speaker and microphone allow communication with the kids through WiFi.
