Is There Such a Thing as Pregnancy Induced Stupidity?

warning - this is another one of my nasty posts. Reader discretion is advised.

Is there such a thing as pregnancy induced stupidity? If you examine Simubaby's premise you might reach such a conclusion. How else would you justify its business model? Simubaby, the brain child of the Spanish Atlantis Virtual Reality is a commercial product harnessing the power of augmented reality to help pregnant mothers-to-be visualize how their fetus looks like. Unlike a similar solution from Talking Dog Studios, this one comes with a belt.

Nothing to get mad about you say? Well, you haven't heard the price yet.
It's 60 euros (77 US dollars). And that's after a price cut from 80€. But, don't think of it as 60€ for an ugly belt just so you have somewhere to put the AR marker. No, you also get access to some amazing AI:

With the advice of experts, we have recreated the most important stages of your baby’s growth and with the aid of an artificial intelligence system.

In case you still think that's a product worth paying for, then I've got news for you! I've recently secured access to some magic beans, guaranteed to increase your baby's intelligence using the aid of quantum entanglement system. Only 59.99€ for a bag of 10 beans, and shipping is free.
