From the “What will they think of next” file comes the “Womba”! Two Canadian music researchers, one from the University Of Calgary, the other now at Montreal’s McGill University, have developed what they call the world’s first prenatal musical instrument. It is a wearable electronic device for pregnant women. The Womba is strapped across a pregnant woman’s stomach and translates the baby’s kicks and other movements into music. There are various musical instruments parents can choose from to reproduce the baby music. The inventors are hoping to find a way for babies to continue to use the Womba as a musical toy after they’re born.
