P18075: Smart Device - Integrated Baby Jumper


Project Summary Project Information

Baby jumpers are used as entertainment for young children, roughly between 4 and 12 months of age, but can also be used to promote dexterity and learning. The main goal of this project is to extend the capabilities of the modern jumper to improve user experience and foster cognitive and physical development. In order to do this, the team worked to improve the jumper in two ways. The first was to make the jumper smart device-compatible in order to provide customization and monitoring capabilities for the parent. The second was to increase the amount of stimuli on the jumper for the baby to interact with in order to promote more cognitive development than current jumper models offer. The end result will be a functional prototype and supporting documentation. The design and prototype will primarily need to be safe for the baby inside the jumper while also being safe for those around the toy. Additionally, the product should be easy to transport, easy to assemble, and fall within the price range of similar products currently on the market.
