Cocoon Cam

Wearless Smart Baby Monitor

WINNER: Most practical solution


Siva recently had his first child, a baby girl. This dramatic increase in responsibility inspired Siva to go on a hunt for the best baby monitor, but was disappointed to find that no baby monitor met his needs, so he did what any maker would do and decided that he would build his own!

Immediate case use:

TRANSFORMING THE PARENT EXPERIENCE By performing customer validation, we found out that parents wanted an easy, simple, and wearless way to know 1) Is the baby alive? 2) Is my baby sick? 3) Is my baby in distress? To meet all of these needs, we set out to build a smart baby monitor that provides video feed and uses computer vision technology to measure the heart rate and temperature of the baby- helping parents better understand how their baby is doing. With an estimated $200MM market size (and growing),penetrating the baby monitor market is an ideal start.


Cocoon Cam is only the beginning. Our vision is to build an FDA approved smart family monitor that can provide essential predictive health information from pregnancy to end of of life care.

TRANSFORMING THE NICU At an estimated $127.1BN, the US medical device market is the world's largest, so we also spoke to several clinicians to find a fitting case use in the medical field. The clinicians indicated that the best use for our monitor would be in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Body temperature and heart rate are key parameters for monitoring the health of premature babies. Cocoon Cam can 1) Save hospitals spending on leeds that monitor heart rate and equipment used for monitoring temperature 2) Send alerts to clinicians as needed 3) Improve the baby monitoring and patient experience by sharing video feed as deemed appropriate by the medical staff 4) Collect and analyze data to establish predictive analytics.
