Did you implement the experiment to verify the theory?

I've seen this pic 10 years ago for the first time and have used in in class a few times for a physics assignment.
A boy (20 kg) goes off a slide. The difference in height between the start and the finish is 3.0 m. The friction on the slight is neglectable. At the end of the slide is a slicer. The average force of the slicer on the boy is 1.7 kN. Calculate the length of the wounds on the body of the boy.
[/quote]Ouch. I probably laughed harder than I should've at that.

Not a verified account, though. Might be a fake profile, despite the quite big amount of followers.

Edit: but I'm afraid it isn't.

For the child to hear music, I don't think it's necessary to put a speaker into your vagina. Sound can go through your belly as well. This babypod works on 54 dB inside the vagina. If I play music at home it's like 70-80 dB, which is about 32 to 256 times as loud as 54 dB. That will surely be heard inside a belly. I think my children have heard my music before they were born.

Don't forget to include the impedance mismatch between air and water (~20 dB) in your calculations. And apparently the womb is a relatively noise place with liquid squishing around all the time (and fetuses are mostly nocturnal, so it's anyone's guess whether they pick it up or not).

I notice that they depict the baby head-down in all the illustrations. That only happens in the very last part of pregnancy, until then they're head-up, so the "babypod" will be far from the ears. Besides, the "Mozart effect" only lasts about 20 minutes (a little detail usually not mentioned by those selling stuff to you).

This is a total gimmick, designed to cash in on unsuspecting parents-to-be.

how can one "cash in on unsuspecting parents to be?"

I mean, if the don't even suspect they might be pregnant, why would something like this be of interest?

how about the effect that its directly applied to womens body, is there no difference between its resonation. there probably are several factors?

That's the impedance mismatch I mentioned above. It's roughly 20 dB between air and water, IIRC, ie. the sound loses about 20 dB in the transition from air to water (varying a bit by frequency, high pitched sounds lose more, low pitched sounds less). That would not apply to the "babypod" since it'll be... erhm, more or less "submerged" already.

But it's nothing that can't be solved by turning the stereo in the living room up a bit, it really doesn't need a whole new "device".

but because it would be on/in human bodys then could it have different effects? it would seem obvious than morhers voice would be somehow more special for the baby because it comes from 'the same' body, not just the desibel level

Might be. But I also think that a pregnant woman playing the piano everyday results in the child feeling comforted by the sound of the piano still after birth. I don't think it matters much where the sound came from.

But I'm not basing this on scientific research.

Keeping up with the spirit of the Halloween/October/horror season, I thought I'd share this creepy little short blurb I found a while back. I'll post the text that goes along with it below the image:

Image

"The picture on top is completely untouched. The bottom picture has only been lightened. I took the photograph while ghost hunting at a very old and bizarre park in Salt Lake City UT at about 3 am. I did not see anything in person. I was simply snapping random pictures of the darkness and once I snapped this, I got such a terrible feeling I left immediately."
