Like most new dads, Gjoci was nervous about the welfare of his precious newborn daughter, particualrly in the night when some babies do scary things - like stop breathing.  So he did what any good nervous dad/hacker/blogger would do, he created a breath detector from a Wiimote and a trio of 1 milliwatt lasers, and then wrote a post about it.

 

Positioned above the crib, the lasers act as an alarm that notifies Gjoci immediately anytime his daughter's  breathing seems to stop or becomes irregular.  

 

Here's a video of Gjoci's baby breathe monitor in action:

OK, so maybe this is a bit over-protective.  But I think it's cute.  As long as he's making sure those lasers don't zap his daughter in the eye.  And hey, if this gives him a little peace of mind at night then more power to him.  

 

What do you think of Gjoci's baby breathing monitor?
