If you’re a new parent, you know the struggle of paranoia when you put your baby down for the night. Is she sleeping? Is she still breathing? Should I go in there?

Now Ray, an Indian startup, is introducing a new way for parents to monitor the health of their newborn baby without intrusive wires or harnesses. There are respiratory trackers for infants today, but most of them require putting some kind of battery-powered sensor on the baby’s body, which is a concern for many parents. The Raybaby monitor (backed by Johnson & Johnson) uses ultra-wideband radar technology to measure minute movements in a baby’s chest. This allows it to record breathing patterns and send alerts when necessary.

The retail price will be around $250, but if you manage to be one of the early backers, you can get one for only $99. Ray hopes to be shipping the monitor by September of this year and to be in retail stores as well.

Raybaby constantly monitors your child’s breathing and sleeping even when asleep or obstructed, and keeps you alerted via a custom app.

The need for Raybaby arose from you, either a parent of the 21st century, or well-wishers of one. Juggling a world of responsibilities and careers, along with trying to raise a happy, healthy baby is no mean feat. Wonderful, yet exhausting.

But sometimes new parents tend to forget just how much path-breaking technology can ease up their lives. And we’re here to do exactly that. To help you look beyond baby monitors and toys. To be non-invasive, precise, and adapt tech that even the grandparents would be cool with. 🙂
