  2. The WWHI would do well to check out Cory Menscher who set up KickBee back in 2008.
    This project involved the creation of a wearable device (named the KickBee) which was constructed from elastic and featured piezo sensors that detected movement and transmitted notice of this (via bluetooth and a java application on his mobile phone) to notify twitter whenever his unborn baby kicked inside the womb.
