A RECENT Spanish development for unborn babies known as the Babypod is available for pregnant women at a cost of €149.95.
This small intra-vaginal device stimulates neural development in unborn babies through music.
The company which has been set up by four scientists says studies show that it encourages communication and vocalisation in babies before birth through the music streamed.
Babypod gives them their first musical and learning experience and is far more effective than other devices affixed to the stomach.
Not everyone agrees however as it has been singled out for an Ig Nobel in this year’s annual awards presented by humorous American scientific magazine Annals of Improbable Research.
At least the inventors showed their sense of humour by flying to California at their expense to collect the award.
