- If this device could be linked to another article for e.g. wristband worn by the father, the father could be continuously reminded of his baby with the help of weak pulsating sensation generated by the band to mimic the baby's heartbeat. When the baby moves around in the womb and kicks the pulse generated by the band would become more intense. This would serve as a constant reminder for the father.
- One could pair up such a device with other products available on the market like Bellybuds- prenatal headphones that allow one to play music to their baby in the mother’s womb. The bellybuds could be remotely controlled by the expectant father allowing him to play music and voice notes to his future kid in the mother’s womb and subsequently feel any movement the foetus makes in response to his voice or music played by him. The idea is to have a product that connects the father to their unborn baby even when he is not in the immediate vicinity of his pregnant partner, for e.g. when is away at work or running chores.
