Touch my neighbors I undergo metamorphosis ,

It could be a

digital wrist watch

As,

Hit me once I start crying,

For verifying the feature of alarm, we can hit specific button to make the watch make sound

Hit me again I sleep like a baby .

hit the same button to keep it off

Touch my neighbors I undergo me metamorphosis ,

These can be lights on / change colors feature of few digital watches

Keep hitting them I create time travel.

Some buttons when kept on hitting, increases minutes, hours, dates, months and years - a kind of time travel (either future or past)

And I am there where u all watch.

Is of course located on a wrist to watch !

Is it a:

Television?

Hit me once I start crying ,

The power button turns it on, creating sound

Hit me again I sleep like a baby .

The power button turns it off again

Touch my neighbors I undergo me metamorphosis ,

A remote control can change the channel, presenting a different series of shapes and sounds to the viewer (alternatively, DVD players, DVR etc. connected to the TV can have much the same effect)

Keep hitting them I create time travel.

Lots of TV channels have a +1 equivalent, showing the same shows an hour later. (alternatively, DVD players, DVR etc. have skip backward/forward options)

And I am there where u all watch.

Generally the centrepiece of a lounge/living room, where everyone can see it

  • $\begingroup$ My first thought was a television remote, similar logic. (I don't think this should be more than a comment, though) $\endgroup$ – N. P. Oct 16 '17 at 19:19

It could be

A video player

Because...

You press once,

It "cries", as in the speakers play the content (assuming the video contains sound)

You press it again,

It stops the video and it becomes quiet as a sleeping baby

Touch my neighbors,

As in the buttons for quality and resolution etc...

Keep on pressing

It fast forwards, like on YouTube

    $\begingroup$ This was the answer I was going to put. The only difference I was thinking was for: "Touch my neighbors I undergo me metamorphosis" would be other videos and the display plays a different video in the same place, as if it morphed. $\endgroup$ – Hawkeye Oct 16 '17 at 22:10

You are

The Snooze Button

Hit me once I start crying ,

if you hit the snooze button, on some alarm clocks it will play the alarm sound

Hit me again I sleep like a baby .

sleep = snooze. You hit the snooze button to have the alarm 'sleep' for a few more minutes, before 'waking up' and going off again.

Touch my neighbors I undergo me metamorphosis ,

The other buttons on the alarm clock can be used to set and change the alarm time

Keep hitting them I create time travel.

You can also use them to change the time of the clock itself.

And I am there where u all watch.

a 'watch' is another kind of clock, although not usually one with a snooze button

It's:

A computer laptop's power button.

Hit me once I start crying,

You hit it once it starts making a noise

Hit me again I sleep like a baby .

Hit it again it either goes to sleep or hibernate (as configured)

Touch my neighbors I undergo me metamorphosis ,

Touch neighboring buttons and you make it undergo metamorphosis

Keep hitting them I create time travel.

Keep hitting them u create time travel - u could travel to future if you are preparing an article or a report. You can travel to past and recall what u did wrong with your work/game.

And I am there where u all watch.

And the power button is there where we all watch (near the screen).
