Every parent has an underlying fear of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), so enter the Respisense Buzz by Pretoria IT engineer Hans Pietersen. Looks like a tube of dental floss but can really protect babies by "triggering a cellphone vibrator motor inside their nappies when sensors detect that breathing has stopped for 15 seconds." It also has a built-in breathing stimulator that will wake the baby to begin its breathing before the alarm is sounded. Let's hope this one works!
