A couple of baby programs to help parents.

First up:

Owlet Baby Care | The Wireless iPhone Baby Breathing Monitor

This is an iPhone app that in conjunction with an ankle sending unit, the parent can monitor the baby's vitals from their iDevice; Heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleeping position are all available in one view.

It is on a pledge system with 14 days left.


Next:

(Windows) Baby Smash!
(Mac, IDevices) AlphaBaby

Quote:
Baby Smash essentially locks down the entire system and consumes the screen. While its running it shows up as a fullscreen application, but it also disables several well-known Windows hotkey shortcuts. The Windows key, CTRL+ESC and ALT+TAB shortcuts do absolutely nothing. To further clarify, if they are pressed nothing at all happens. The application doesnt minimize, close or disappear. Only two shortcuts work: ALT+F4 to close the program, and SHFT+CTRL+ALT+O brings up the options menu. While it can happen, Im willing to bet that no child is going to simultaneously press ALT+F4 so youre in the clear there. Its also worth noting that the CTRL+ALT+DEL shortcut still works.

Source, a review from: [Windows] Protect your system from harm when used by little children with Baby Smash | Reviews, news, tips, and tricks | dotTech
I can see a secondary use for this one if the user has pets that "love" to be around a keyboard and you have to be away from your machine.
