WAAAH! Application Translates Your Baby's Cries

The sound of a baby crying can frustrate just about anyone, especially if the kid isn't hungry, wet, tired, lonely or bored. Now iPhone-toting parents can figure out exactly what their baby is pining for with the help of The Cry Translator.

The Daily Mail reports that the Cry Translator can figure out why baby is bawling in less than 10 seconds with a 96 percent accuracy rate if users followed the methods suggested to calm their baby once the kid's cry was deciphered. Creators Pedro Barrera and Luis Meca say the application uses patented technology to identify the baby's cry based on five emotional or physiological states: hunger, fatigue, annoyance, stress or boredom. 'These five cries are universal to all babies regardless of culture or language,' the two say.

However, while the application can boast a high accuracy, DM points out that there is no way to recognize the cry of a baby who is not well.

Those of you with mini versions of yourselves can download the application here. Be sure to let us know how accurate it is for you!
