air crib 1

B.F.Skinner's "Air Crib". This was the right invention by the wrong man. It's a crib that keeps baby at a nice, controlled temperature and humidity, a baby-sized room. However, Skinner's notoriety as the founder of operant conditioning led to wild rumors that he was performing lab experiments on his own children, and the air crib never took root.
