Do unborn babies need their own surround sound systems?

That's the premise of Nuvo Group's Ritmo - a modular surround sound system designed to deliver all types of audio, anything recorded on an MP3 player, to babies in-utero as well as after birth.

The Ritmo Pregnancy Kit include:     

  • 1 Prenatal Audio Belt
  • 1 Audio Controller
  • 2 Mini Speaker sets
  • 1 Charget (u.s 110v plug)
  • 1 Belt Extender
  • 1 Audio Connector Cable
  • 1 Washable Protective Pouch
  • 1 Instruction Manual

According to Dr. Alexandra Lamont of Leicester University, babies can remember sounds they heard in the womb more than a year after birth. 'This provides new evidence about the influence of nurture in early child development. Babies can remember and prefer music that they heard before they were born.'

Other research, cited by Nuvo Group, suggests that "musical interactions from these earliest moments are directly related to brain development and may be the building blocks for future musical ability, intellectual development, and ultimately full functioning in the culture in which the child live."

Think that surround sound systems can really help brain development of unborn children?
