The Lazy Geek Way of Rocking your Baby to Sleep

Using Ubuntu Linux and Open Source DVR MythTV, YouTube user macjonesnz scripted his CD-ROM tray to open and close at regular intervals. He then tied a string from the tray to his baby’s car seat, making it the perfect lazy geek way of putting a newborn to sleep. Brilliant or pathetic? I’ll let you guys decide.

  1. That is pretty funny, I remember one night when working remotely, I SSH'd into my Sun Box at home and would open/close the CDROM in the middle of the night and freak out my wife who worked in same room.

  3. Definitely a more detached way of rocking a baby to sleep than holding her in your arms.

    But I like the credits which include the "release date" of Baby Charlotte…very cute.
