Dads-to-be feeling a bit unconnected from the baby in the womb? Designer Marco Righetto has come up with a perhaps-too-novel approach to the problem: a dress worn by the expecting mother that senses baby’s kicks, and a bracelet worn by the father that transmits that action in a way he feels immediately.
“Aura is a set of wearable devices for expecting parents,” he says, “a dress and a bracelet. It enables non-verbal communication between expecting parents. Fetal movement is translated into a light message for the mother-to-be, and a haptic one for her partner.”
It’s just a concept now, apparently. There’s more information here.
