Looking for a gift for the expectant mother in your life? How about the Babypod prenatal speaker system which is a "small intravaginal device that stimulates neural development in unborn babies through music"? Some scientists and doctors say music helps stimulate the brains of babies and Babypod brings that music, um, closer than ever before. It also comes with branching headphones so you can listen along with your baby. The makers, based in Spain, claim Babypod is "the only product of its kind scientifically guaranteed. It has been tested and approved by Institut Marquès, an international centre of reference in Gynaecology, Obstetrics and Assisted Reproduction." Babypod retails for about $100 and you can read more about it here.
