Scientists may have come up with the answer to the question every parent wants answered: why is their baby crying? You've fed him, changed him, taken his temperature?nothing works. If only he could tell you what's wrong.
Now a device has been invented that can translate a baby's cries. A microchip monitors volume, pattern and interval to calculate if the baby is stressed, tired, hungry, sleepy or uncomfortable. The battery-powered "Why Cry" was created by Spanish electronic engineer Pedro Monagas.
Monagas spent three years visiting analyzing the crying patterns of around 100 babies and claims his invention has a 98% accuracy rate. He says, "My own son Alex was always crying and after night after night of not very much sleep I decided I had to find a way of finding out what he was trying to say to me?if only for my own sanity."
