Nine - Shared (paternal) Antenatal Growth

Bronze
2011

As a point of focus for information sharing, Nine helps fathers to share in the pregnancy in a new way. The light on outer surface of Nine grows over nine months, developing as the baby grows, while the base can detect and separate the faster frequency of the growing baby’s heartbeat. The father can place Nine on the mother’s stomach and view a real-time simulation of the heartbeat and fetal movement, creating a tangible connection for the father.
