Interactive Fetal Movement

Zachariah Kobrinsky

Fetal movement sensor that visualizes a baby's kicks in an ethereal, meditative .p5 sketch, and it also tracks fetal movement over time as an indicator of fetal health.


I believe this is the first digital interactive platform for a fetus in history. In addition to a video and audio experience for an audience, I can broadcast back to my wife's belly via headphones, providing audio feedback to my son-to-be in utero. It'll be interesting to see how he reacts.

For the show, the experience will be the visualization of baby kicks with audio, and visualization of baby movement over time that I will be data logging to an SD card.
