Now, a ‘baby iPod’ that plays music in mother’s womb!April 17th, 2009 - 1:23 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 17 (ANI): Music-loving mothers-to-be may soon be able to play tunes to their unborn child, courtesy a specially designed ‘baby iPod’.
The contoured belt called a B(l)aby boasts a built-in MP3 player.
Brainchild of Geof Ramsay, a series of special “speakers” transmit vibrations from the music to the foetus.
“For years scientists have talked about music being a catalyst for an unborn child’s mental growth,” The Sun quoted Geof, as saying.
“This simple device gives mothers a chance to try out that theory. Of course, classical music is what the experts have suggested be used.
“But there is nothing to stop you playing your favourite Beatles track or even Led Zeppelin,” he said.
Canadian Geof - a design student - has included a bonus for the mum.
He said: “Three tiny mechanisms in the back of the belt provide the mother-to-be with a relaxing massage.” (ANI)
