Innovative blogging…from the womb

December 15, 2008

This has to rank up there with the most innovative, yet also the most pointless social media ideas out there.  Kickbee is a band worn by a mother to be which is filled with sensors and wires.  No, it’s not to monitor the babies health and well-being, it’s design is purely social media.  When the baby kicks, Kickbee posts a Twitter post to inform all concerned of the occasion.

Great idea, but it needs some improvement.  Why not conduct a scientific study to learn the “language” of a babies movements in the womb.  Rather than informing us that the kid has kicked, why not INTERPRET what it’s trying to say.  “It’s dark in here..” for example, or “stop eating gherkins with custard, I hate them!”.  Either way, I’d like to see some babies express militant views or dislike for public transport etc, just to lighten the long 9 month wait.

So where do we go from here?  Sensors on your stomach to inform people when you’re hungry, Brain sensors to tell your friends when you’re bored, maybe a sensor on your car to tell all of your friends when your car gets stolen.  Ok, most would laugh but a few may help. Maybe..  Hey, why don’t we hook our pets up so we know when they sleep, go outside, chase cats etc? That would be AMAZING. In fact, I’m working on it now.  Next stop, Radio Shack..
