Technically it’s just another speaker system designed to be strapped to a pregnant belly to provide the fetus with music to further its mental development before it’s even born. But the Ritmo Advanced Sound System can also be used to talk to your baby while it’s still in the womb with your iPhone, so in a roundabout way, it’s kind of like your fetus’ first cellphone. Sure, the only response it can give is a kick or two, but to be honest there are plenty of times when I’d love to be able to kick someone on the other end of a cellphone conversation as well.
The device, or at least the speakers, can be later removed from the belly straps and attached to a crib or stroller after the baby is born, providing enriching or soothing music and sounds while they’re sleeping or playing. The Ritmo Advanced Sound System is available now for a special introductory price of $129.99.
