For parents - By using SensUs, new parents will be more comfortable interacting with babies as the product automatically uses the most age-appropriate play patterns based on haptic feedback. SensUs could be hung on the crib and create soothing natural sounds and calming visual effects (such as rain sounds and color changes). Usually, it can be helpful to distract babies’ attention when they cry by helping them play with toys. In this case, however, the “magic” which SensUs provides will be more effective in helping new parents calm their babies through haptic responses. At the same time, the worry and anxiety of raising a baby will be reduced dramatically. They will have more happy and flexible daily time. For babies - SensUs also cultivate babies' perception of their senses. SensUs is a creative stage for babies to grow up with vision, hearing, and touch. In every growth stage, interacting and gesturing with the droplet toy in combination with the umbrella toy will create various intriguing sounds of water raining, dropping, flowing, and splashing. Employing fun interactive elements, SensUs helps babies feel strong relationships and companionship by parents.
