Serving as a fusion between a standard MP3 player/DAP and a digital stethoscope, this beautifully curvaceous gadget, known as the Beforme, is merely a concept at the time of writing but thanks to Robert Majkut Design it may well make it into becoming a commercial reality.

Designed to allow the user not only to listen to their MP3 collection but to also monitor their heart rate, as well as allow expectant mothers to listen to the heart beat of their unborn child, the Beforme’s somewhat embryonic form is, undoubtedly, a design masterstroke resulting in a device that pairs considerable ‘wow’ appeal with dual functionality which, we suggest, would result in considerable commercial success assuming it eventually makes it to the shelves.


From the official Beforme site:

The innovativeness of ‘Beforme’ is based on connection of two functions in one device: MP3 player and stethoscope which is used to listen to mother’s and foetus’ heart rhythm. The device consists of three basic elements: headphones, corps and stethoscope. Thanks to appropriate software it is possible to make an analysis of correctness mother’s and baby’s heartbeat. What is more, there is a function of presenting it, as a graph, on the display. The recorded data can be transmitted to the computer through USB cable or Bluetooth.
