Baby Cry Translator App Knows Why Baby's Crying, How To Fix It

The Cry Translator iPhone app will tell you why your baby is crying -- and how to fix it -- in ten seconds flat, the sellers claim.

Wired explains,

The Cry Translator listens to a whining child and analyzes the pitch, volume, tone and inflection of his nerve-jangling noise. Ten seconds later, it provides you with one of five "translations": hungry, sleepy, stressed, annoyed or bored.

The seller, Biloop Technologic, says that tests have shown the app to be accurate 96% of the time.

The app is reportedly the result of six years of research by a team in Spain, who claim that crying has no bounds, and no borders:

There are five distinct cries that have common frequency patterns, regardless of culture or language.

The app, which costs $29.99, is on sale for $9.99 through November 11, 2009.

What do you think? Love it or leave it? Would you wait ten seconds before calming your child -- and trust an app over instinct to decide why your baby is upset?
