They’ve long said that playing classical music to a baby while in gestation will result in a smarter human. Getting the sound in there can be a bit of a challenge. Sure, you can sit next to a speaker, but there’s no guarantees that you’ll penetrate the embryonic fluid, not to mention the fat and other stuff floating around in there.
Enter the RITMO. It’s a lightweight, elasticized speaker system that safely straps the mother’s mid riff. Plug in any MP3 player and you can play your favorite tunes or as Thinkgeek suggests a language learning tape – only if I had one of those growing up.
Course if you’re a mom that runs out of the room due to a buzzing microwave or a ringing cell phone, you’re probably not gonna throw down the $100 to purchase one of these.
