SleepHero, the app that replicates parents’ voices to get their baby to sleep

From 10 to 16 July - Society

When your baby wakes up at night, what is needed is the reassuring voice of dad or mom to get back to sleep. Wanting to help exhausted parents, the start-up SleepHero has developed a mobile application that means they can stay in bed when baby cries at three in the morning. The app provides a selection of rhymes and stories on which parents record their voices. When the baby cries, the parents simply remotely activate the app, which then plays the selected songs until the child sleeps again. An option allows the app to detect the baby crying and then automatically launch the program.
