Every year, the CES gadget show brings more devices promising to make life a little bit easier for harried parents.The Las Vegas show's growing "family tech" sector encompasses products that range from artificially intelligent toys and baby monitors to internet-connected breast pumps.The $149 toy talks in a childlike voice and makes a game out of boring chores that might otherwise require a parent's nagging.Its makers say Woobo doesn't glue kids to its screen because it invites them to go find things in the home, help parents cook dinner or play family games like charades. Regulators haven't approved any baby monitors for medical use and instead recommend parents focus on providing a safe sleeping environment.Raybaby's device resembles a one-eyed robot that detects breathing patterns using radar technology.The nonionizing radiation it emits is at low levels, but might still turn off some parents already concerned about keeping their babies too close to smartphones.Nanit's Aaron Pollack acknowledges that some parents might still check Nanit's phone app to check breathing data five times a night "out of sheer anxiety".
