Babypod Plays Music For Your Unborn Child, Requires… Insertion

que-es-babypod

It’s believed that getting your offspring to listen to music and voice sounds from an early age helps in their development. How early? Well, if you believe the folks at Babypop, as early as 16 weeks after conception. And to make sure your child gets the best, unmuffled music, the BabyPod device is a speaker meant to be inserted right into the vagina. Yes, that’s right. This is a speaker made to be inserted vaginally, and it’s not wireless… So you’ll have a cord dangling, which we suppose is good for removing it once you’re done with your session; think of it as a musical tampon. It’s made from hypoallergenic silicone, and is capped at 54 decibels (about the level of a hushed conversation) so as to not damage your child’s hearing. There’s no battery or Bluetooth chip, so don’t go worrying about electromagnetic radiation or anything. It’s $134.

Mogees Turns Just About Anything Into An Instrument

mogees-1

Finding yourself always tapping away on surfaces, creating a beat from stuff that wasn’t meant to be musical? Well then, Mogees is just for you. It’s a special vibration sensor that attaches to anything, and allows you to map different vibration patterns to different instruments. This way you can turn your living space into a whole percussion set. You first have to program the app and tell it which vibrations correspond to which instrument (eg. tapping with open palms on a door could be the snare drum, using the knuckles could be the high hat, and hitting it with a key could be the kick drum), it’ll then recognize the vibrations and communicate the signal to your phone, which in turn emits the corresponding sound. Imagine sitting at your desk at work and kicking out a whole drum set by tapping on your drawers, your stapler or anything else that comes to mind. It sounds ridiculous, but you really have to watch the video to see the potential.

It’s not limited to drum sounds, incidentally. Mogee outputs MIDI signals, so you can map just about any instrument to your vibrations and get creative. It’s a fully-funded Kickstarter, and a £96 ($147) pledge will get you one with delivery in November!
