Kickbee tweets each of babys kick

Expectant mothers look forward to the day when their bundle of joy is delivered, but in the mean time, they will have to wait patiently while enduring kicks from within. It could send a sharp pain to mom, but that shows that baby is well and alive. The Kickbee is a prototype device which comes in the form of an electronics-filled stretchable spandex band which is worn over the pregnant mother’s belly. Whenever there is a baby-like kick detected, a Twitter account will be updated with lines such as “I kicked Mommy!” This is the brainchild of New York interaction designer and applications developer Corey Menscher, but it doesn’t look as though there is a huge market for this.
