The iPad of Baby Monitors

Seriously, we think this baby monitor could’ve been invented by the CIA -- it’s just that high-tech and fancy! The monitor even works like an iPad: It uses touch-screen technology so you can pan, scan and zoom to see everything that’s going on with baby. If you want to see what face baby’s making, all you have to do is zoom in, or if you want to check if the window near baby’s crib is open, you can pan the camera around. It’s the perfect surveillance tool for moms who want all the details. Summer Infant BabyTouch Digital Video Monitor, $195, Amazon.com
