Some research has shown that babies exposed to music in utero are smarter. So some moms—and dads—sing to their pregnant bellies in hopes of raising their kids I.Q. Others go even further and wrap a specially designed sound system around their bellies: the Ritmo Advanced Sound System by Nuvo.
The sound system lets moms and their babies "share the sensory and emotional experience of bonding through sound and music."
It was invented by Oren Oz, a dad of two, after his wife tried playing music to her unborn baby in her second pregnancy. She couldn't find a comfortable position that kept the speakers still—and she couldn't walk around.
Ritmo connects to iPods, MP3 players, iPhones and Blackberries. It has four speakers (inside the soft fabric pad) and a small controller that fits into small pockets.
The Ritmo Advanced Sound System is $129.99 at Nuvo.
Think you'll get a Ritmo? Or will you just keep singing to your belly?
