Parents cannot always watch their child full time and with regular nanny cams the child cannot always be seen. We are addressing this issue by creating a robot that parents can manually access on their phones and control which way the robot moves. Parents will also be able to access a live stream where they can see what their child is up to.

The BaBy 8 functions as a baby monitor that is able to be controlled remotely via an app on the parents' phone (connected through Bluetooth) as well as stream live video feed (also viewed via an app). Due to its friendly appearance, children will be more open to the idea of the BaBy 8 following it around. The remote control option also allows for more visibility as the child cannot step out of the frame.

The only problem we faced was creating the body for our bb8. We started with three layers of paper mache and one layer of putty, but when we went to saw the body in half it was flimsy and cracked. We solved this issue by starting from scratch and creating three layers of paper mache and one layer of canvas and finally one last layer of paper mache. This resulted in a stronger body.

Since parents often have troubles mentoring their child full time we have created the BB8, which shows a live stream of your child and you can also control which way the robot moves directly from your phone!
