transcranial Oscillating Current Stimulation of mothers brain readout via blanket
Sensors on the mother, tOCS device, to mimic mother being and thinking in close proximity of infant. The tOCS would be by a electrode laden hooded blanket and receiving and modulation device.
Of course, being without scientific investigate and having a lot of large jump extrapolation, this product
is only thought to give an electromagnetic parental comfort shaddow to the child.
But still, possibly the ultimate in cute, ahhh, electrified security.

A stepping stone suddenly surfaced,
with a few bubbly ripples. I'll use it to step forward with my full weight. [wjt, Feb 02 2018]

||Can it also include an electric fence for the top rail of
||Yes, although at random intervals so no behavior is given unfair re-enforcement.
||If you want to give unfair reinforcement to, specifically, no
behaviour, surely something that kills the behaver would
result in preferential no behaviour at all, and hence, have
dominant reinforcement. Im not sure how youd randomise
it, my guess would be that it would be such an unfair
dominant strategy that of no behaviour at all, once it
achieves dominant equilibrium that it would act as an
asymptote and clamp to only no behaviour, not allowing
other forms of behaviour to occur thereafter.
||Random electrocutions would tend to lead to the phenomenon of
Learned Helplessness, which is a seriously nasty thing to do to
||Ah yes, thanks for reminding me. Nothing like a good
imaginary ceiling on achievement and ambition.
||In reality the cot with the random electrification rail( always non lethal,just annoying), the child has one behavior, getting out of the cot. Just like life and desktop cold fusion, sometimes you can, mostly you can't. Helplessness is when you don't have that window of can.
||I didnt realise you could even get cans in a window. Is that
a new way of packaging cans?
||I think it has something to do with Andy Warhol.
