This is called a "ghodiyu"...Indian and Pakistani babies sleep in them, instead of bassinets. This one is very modern. In India, they are basically a baby hammock, made from a thin cotton sheet. Baby gently sways to sleep. They can't fall out of it, it's better on their digestion, and they help prevent SIDS because the fabric is incredibly thin, so if baby rolls over they can still breathe.
