New iPhone app helps identify why a baby is crying within ten seconds

Published by Waleed Fakhroo on November 6, 2009

Baffled parents desperate to know exactly why their baby is crying can now get the answer in ten seconds from their mobile phone.

A company in Barcelona has launched an iPhone application which they say will take just that amount of time to figure out what’s up with baby.

Demand has been phenomenal since it was featured on American television this week, said a company spokeswoman.

Baby iPhone app
The iPhone app claims to be able to tell the difference between five different types of baby cry

The Cry Translator ‘involves a revolutionary technology that quickly identifies an infant’s cry, based on one of five emotional or physiological states: hunger, fatigue, annoyance, stress or boredom, ‘ say the creators Pedro Barrera and Luis Meca.

‘These five cries are universal to all babies regardless of culture or language.’

Parents are told to simply place their iPhone about a foot from the crying baby and touch the ‘Start’ button.

The cries are analysed and identified within the 10-second window with a 96 per cent degree of accuracy . Once the cry has been identified, tips to calm the infant are provided.

Baby crying
Apparently a parent will be able to determine what is wrong with their child within ten seconds

One parent on the company’s website marveled at how accurately a soiled nappy was detected.

However, one thing the app does not mention is how it would recognise if a baby was ill.

It seems there are still some situations where a parent’s instincts work better than technology.
