Dad Finds New Use for CD-ROM Tray: Baby Rocker

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 27, 2009

Ah, the ol’ CD drive. It can read CDs. It can write on CDs. Idiots use it as a coaster and then call tech support if it stops working. And it can put babies to sleep.


YouTube user macjonesnz MacGyvered a baby rocker using his baby’s car seat, a piece of string, his PC’s CD drive and a bit of code.

I’m calling it the medium-tech baby rocker. If macjonesnz made a robot rocker, now that would be high tech. Still, the man ordered his computer to rock his child to sleep. Programming ftw.
