Audio Products for Parents with Young Kids

Gizmag reports on a couple of things that might be of interest to parents.

Sparkup Magical Book Reader:  Can’t read to your kid? Or maybe you’re just tired of reading the same story over and over and over again.  This device lets you record your own audio books so little Johnny/Josie can hear mommy/daddy read them their favourite tale whenever they want.  Next up: a debate on how much babysitting should be done by electronic devices.

Homer Simpson’s BabyTranslator:  Okay, so that’s not what it’s called.  But scientists in Rhode Island have created a computer program that analyzes the cry of a baby to determine if there are neurological or developmental problems.

    Sparkup Reader is not for babysitting. It's for getting much more out of time together, encouraging children to love books, enabling far-away relatives to connect with a child in yet another personal and very touching way.

    TV is often babysitting. Sparkup Reader will hopefully take kids from TV consumption to book exploration. And add even more fun into reading-together experience.
