Meet EMMA, the cellphone for blogging your pregnancy
Posted Jun 30, 2005, 2:40 PM ET by Ryan Block
This might very well be the perfect tool for the peeps over at BloggingBaby: the EMMA pregnancy-phone by Hyoung Won, though a design concept only, would include an ultrasound transducer and foetal data collection methods for automatically updating a pregnancy blog in real time with the latest videos, sounds, and stats. But we”™ll stop short here instead of continuing on to discuss how believe it or not, pretty much no one wants to hear the minute-by-minute play by play of your pregnancy. Ok, maybe your pregnant friends do, but that”™s it.
EMMA – A smart phone for a pregnant woman
Emma is a smart mobile phone for a pregnant woman. The user, the pregnant woman, captures foetus videos, pictures, heartbeat sounds and tangible movements with Emma”™s hand-held ”˜Ultrasound transducer”™. The user can build a blog website and upload captured multi-media data onto the website with Emma to share her pregnancy and foetus information with other family members and friends.Leave a reply →
