If Misty is part of an infant’s household I think Misty could be a big improvement over baby monitors, relieving a parent from having to listen for an infant’s cries all the time. Parent(s) could use Misty to view and hear an infant’s cries at any time. And I think Misty could be trained to communicate with a parent when the infant started crying for longer than a set amount of time, allowing the parent(s) to view and their infant…
Ideally Misty would be trained on some set of criteria on how to interpret a given baby’s cries, so that only sounds communicating distress would be reported.
It should also be possible to have Misty programmed to verbally try to soothe an infant who has been put to bed (sing a lullaby available on a web site, perhaps), and alerting the parent if the infant cries longer than a given amount of time.
And I expect other “nanny-like” tasks could be part of Misty’s repertoire as well.
