Do you know a man who wants to experience 40 weeks of pregnancy in two minutes? The Mommy Tummy 8.0 is the answer. MedGadget shared this device, created by Kosaka Lab at the Kanagawa Institute, a Japanese company. I'm not sure what to say about this! It's definitely creative. On the Mommy Tummy website, which is mostly written in Japanese, the company describes the device far better than I can sum it up!
The Mommy Tummy is composed of a water bag, touch sensor, acceleration sensor, and fetal air actuator. To simulate the growth and weigh gain of a fetus, warm water is pumped into the bag. The warm water is maintained at 37-38 degrees Celsius by a heater. The vibrator in the jacket simulates the fetal heartbeat. A touch sensor is attached to the front of the jacket to measure the force with which the hand strokes the tummy. The air actuator (balloon) is used to simulate the kicking of the fetus. The balloon placed in the front of the system is used to simulate breast development.
They left no stone unturned, that's for sure. The point is to allow men to "experience" pregnancy -- the hardships and what expecting mothers go through. The website notes, "Perhaps if men could comprehend these labors, they would be more amiable towards pregnant women and have stronger affectionate ties with their newborn children."

What do you think? Does wearing a pregnancy simulator that compresses ten months into two minutes give an accurate impression of pregnancy?

You can watch this video of the Mommy Tummy 8.0 in action. The video is in Japanese with dubbing and subtitles.
