Parents, how much would you pay for more sleep? If you said just about $1,200, here's a crib for you.

Designed by Yves Behar, the sleek and modern Snoo isn't just a pretty centerpiece for your minimalist nursery. Developed with pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp — author of The Happiest Baby on the Block — and engineers at MIT Media Lab, the motorized crib can sense when your child is crying and will rock them back to sleep. Snoo also has a white noise machine that mimics sounds from the womb, and can be fully controlled via smartphone app.

As a non-parent, it looks a bit weird to strap a kid into a robotic crib, but a) I'm generally well-rested and am in no place to judge, and b) you can't argue with results:

Baby magic? Maybe. Snoo starts shipping on November 1.
