Beforme MP3 stethescope: listen to your unborn child’s heartbeat
All those future parents who want to listen to the heartbeats of their unborn children in the comfort of their own homes may just have their wish fulfilled if the product concept "Beforme" sees the light of day.
Designed by Elżbieta Madej and Robert Majkut, Beforme is a stethoscope with a built-in MP3 player that can play back the heartbeats of an unborn child. While the embryo-shaped Beforme allows the mother to listen in to the heart rhythms on the MP3 player at the touch of a button, it also displays the beats in a graphical form on the display. In addition, the recordings can be downloaded on to a PC via USB or Bluetooth and then sent to a doctor for examination.
Call that the most utilitarian gift that you can give to a pregnant woman. The product is still in the prototype (embryo) phase.
