Apparently, Fetus Hears Music Better If The Speaker Is Inside The Vagina

There are gadgets and there are weird gadgets, and then somewhere in the obscure corner of the universe, there are gadgets that makes you go ewwww!. OK. To be fair, we have not come across any gadget that would make us goes ‘ewwww!’, well, that is until Babypod comes along. Cute product name, but let me assure you that its use is anything but adorable. So, what is it that this Babypod does? Oh, nothing much really. It is just a speaker of sort that will let an unborn child listen to music – except that this speaker has to be shoved into a mom-to-be’s vagina.

This Cool Gadget Uses Computer Vision To Monitor Baby’s Breathing

I don’t have children of my own and so I am not quite sure why is it important to monitor a newborn’s breathing. However, I think the Nanit Breathing Wear sounds interesting enough to warrant a mention here. The product name is actually quite self-explanatory, but if you really must know, it is basically lets parents monitor their baby’s breathing. What’s interesting about is, it uses no sensors and hence, there are no electronic devices in contact with the baby’s skin.

Meet Owlet Band, The World’s First Consumer Pregnancy Monitor

Made for home fetal monitor isn’t new. We have seen it as far back as 2014, but this new one from Owlet Baby Care, called Owlet Band, kind of changes everything. How else did it go on to bag two CES awards in categories of Wearable Technology and Tech to Change the World? And oh yes, it is totally wearable. It’s like having an ultrasound machine strapped to mommy’s belly, but it is, obviously, more sophisticated and its, well, wearable.

Elvie Revolutionizes Breast Pumping With Cordless, Wearable Breast Pump

I don’t have kids. Neither am I a woman, but I do have sisters and cousins who do. From them being pregnant and subsequently giving birth, breast pumping is a necessary routine. Often, they have to excuse themselves to breast pump and if they were in nearby room, you can hear the whirling sound of the machine working hard. Them excusing themselves and the machine making a ding does not belong to this high-work world we live in. This is where British brand Elvie wants to make the difference. The company has developed Elvie Pump. Continue reading Elvie Revolutionizes Breast Pumping With Cordless, Wearable Breast Pump

Here’s How You Can Get A Moving Car Simulating Baby Cot By Ford

Let me see. This news came up on April 6, so the MAX Motor Dreams Baby Cot you see here is not an April Fools prank. The thing is, it is not a creation of some startup nor is it a product of a baby care company. It is in fact a product by Ford. Yes. An automaker. Apparently, some new parents resort to driving the baby in attempt to coax them to sleep and hence, Ford thought it will be nice to have a cot that simulates a moving car, complete with motion, engine noise and even passing street lighting, so parents get baby off to sleep at night without actually going on drive. To be honest, this has to be the first time I am hearing this theory, but hey, who am I to doubt this, right? Continue reading Here’s How You Can Get A Moving Car Simulating Baby Cot By Ford

If Smartbe Has Its Way, Baby Stroller Could Be Going Autonomous Too

Autonomous vehicles are the buzz words of 2015 and they will be for many more years to come until it becomes roadworthy, but before that could happen, a startup wants to make baby stroller autonomous. The idea is, pushing your baby around relegates you to, well, just pushing. You can push and run so you get to exercise at the same time, but what Smartbe Self-Propelled Baby Stroller proposes to do is to let you trail behind the baby, whether you are jogging or walking – handsfree. Sensors onboard detect your presence behind (with the help of your phone, we assume) and power itself ahead of you or follow you as you move forward or backwards. Continue reading If Smartbe Has Its Way, Baby Stroller Could Be Going Autonomous Too

Bellabeat Connected System Pregnancy Tracker

we spent a good portion of the time debating among ourselves what is the best title that would describe this revolutionary prenatal care product. we think Bellabeat Connected System doesn’t sound quite to the point and tracking pregnancy seems almost way too medical. anyway, we will just refer it to as Bellabeat Connected System Pregnancy Tracker, because that’s basically what it does. yup. pregnancy. there is an app for that too. the system comprises of an ultrasound digital tracker which works in sync with an app (for Android and iOS) that will allow expecting parents to listen in and record their unborn child’s heartbeat, track the baby’s movement and keep a Kick Counter chart, as well as organize the prenatal care and keeping a pregnancy diary.

Skoda vRS Mega Man-Pram Baby Stroller

there’s nothing sissy about pushing your little one around in a baby stroller, unless the pram in question happens to be of Barbie’s design (there’s no way we are going to look like Ken. no freaking way). however, in any case if you feel that you belongs to the 33 percent British dads who felt embarrassed pushing a conventional prams, then the conceptional Skoda vRS Mega Man-Pram Baby Stroller might change you mind and why wouldn’t it be? cos’ 76% of the male population sampled said that they would be more inclined to spend more time pushing the baby around if the stroller were stylish, high spec buggy. billed as the “ultimate baby buggy”, the vRS Mega Man-Pram is a “high-performance vehicle” that’s designed give any man folks the ultimate baby transportation experience.

Longboard Stroller by Quinny & Studio Peter van Riet

want to be the coolest mum or dad on the block? then be sure to look out for the Longboard Stroller, a concept stroller conjured up by stroller specialist Quinny and design agency Studio Peter van Riet that defies the norm of a stroller design by incorporating a baby stroller to a longboard. but why a longboard with a stroller? the explanation put forward by Quinny was one that’s pretty profound, but to sum things up, the Longboard Stroller aims to give parents living in an urban environment, the freedom to move and to travel longer distances in an environmentally responsible way. sure, it is true that you could have a motorized stroller or sort (or a buggy even, if your city allows), but that wouldn’t be as green as something that’s powered by your very own legs, would it? moreover, if have always loved longboard, this stroller lets you continue with your passion even if a child comes into your life. well, except that, with this contraption and your precious little one onboard, thrills like speeding round obstacles and dashing down hill have to be omitted. you know, for safety sake.
