Capella, demonstrated its app with a plastic baby doll on the floor of CES 2024 in Las Vegas.
A new company says its phone app can “translate” your baby’s cry and tell you if they’re hungry, uncomfortable, tired or have a wet diaper. Showcasing its tech at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, Capella says it uses AI and machine learning to decipher baby cries.

According to Capella, its technology makes it about 95% accurate versus roughly 30% for humans when trying to guess your baby’s needs. But take that figure with a grain of salt — you know your baby best, and you can hit an “I disagree” button on the app if you don’t think it’s correct.
The cost of the app is $10 a month, with Capella still working on temperature — whether your baby is crying because they’re too hot or too cold — as another analysis point.
Another product that claims it can translate your baby’s cries, Qbear+, was shown off at CES last year, and even won an innovation award. The big difference here is you don’t have to buy a new device — you can just use an app on your own phone.
You can also use Capella as a more generalized baby parenting app, as it has the ability to track sleep, feeds and diaper changes. It’s additionally working on using AI to soothe your baby, too.
“With our groundbreaking AI-powered baby cry translator, we accurately understand your baby’s needs and use AI-generated sounds to soothe your little one without requiring your constant attention,” Capella’s site claims.
Capella is already available in the Apple App Store and you can join the waitlist for the Android app in the Google Play Store.
