'A British baby furniture company has created the world's first cot with an iPad - prompting an online backlash from parents.
Gary Taylor, owner of Birmingham-based furniture company Babeek, designed the £1,500 ($2,000) cot after he had trouble putting his nine-month-old baby to sleep.
According to Mr Taylor, he included the iPad in the crib so he could play his young daughter white noise to help her nod off.
But parents have slammed the 'ridiculous' creation, claiming the smart cot was a way for lazy mothers and fathers to occupy their children.
On Facebook, Ana Belem said: 'This is wrong on so many levels. There's a limit for technology and this is just way over that limit!!! Shame on you.'
Josephine-Freya Gilbert said: 'Oh dear God no! Brain dead kids with parents who can't be a***d to actually parent!'
Danielle West said: 'This has got to be a joke the most ridiculous thing ever. What's wrong with reading/singing/talking about the day with your child to settle them for bed!'
And Lyndsey Leigh added: 'My God I hate seeing babies stuck in pushchairs with a phone or tablet shoved in their lap, lazy parenting at its best and now this.'
Creator Mr Taylor, who lives in Birmingham, explained how the iPad could be used as a way for parents to make life easier for themselves.
He said: 'For me, it's about getting our child to sleep.'
