Hover Cot

  [vote for,

Babies. They like white or whitish noise, such as the hairdryer going, or the sound of a car engine. These noises will send them to and keep them asleep.

Babies. Not, when in comfortable cot, crib or basket repose, that manoeuvreable.

You. A proud owner of the Hovercot, which provides white noise from its coal, petrol or pigeon powered engine, along with the smooth ease of movement that comes from resting on a cushion of air.

You, half drunk with lack of sleep, playing Baby Pong in the comfort of your own suburban midden.

       Complete with ear plugs, perhaps?

       Blessings are showering down upon you, and yours.

       (+) For baby pong.   

       I thought this would follow around a habitual sleepwalker and take him back home when he laid down. Not that this would work for me, it could never keep up with the car.

       "You smell that ? DO YOU SMELL THAT ? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that .... i love the smell of Napalm in the morning ...."   

       We consider that this invention could be considerably improved by using a pyrotechnic gas generator as the power source.

       But you consider that about most inventions, nicht wahr? ;)

       Is there any reason why it wouldn't be able to be powered by battery or AC electricity? Coal, petrol, and pigeons are all fairly dirty.

       So are babies.

None at all - I think that both would be better than coal or petrol (though I have a soft spot for the use of pigeons as a power source). Howsobeit, had I put these eminently sensible power-source suggestions into my posting, the idea would have been torn to raggedy, joyless little bits by the ruthlessly practical and whimsy-deficient element of the massed halfbakers. Reverse pandering, I suppose.

But they're quite difficult to light.

       There's probably also room in this range for a hover potty, so that the still-warm widdle can be gently kicked across the floor to the bathroom, minimising the risk of being said fluid being stepped in or, worse, picked up and carried by your helpful toddler.
