It seems that kids these days are becoming more technologically educated at an earlier age.   However, here is a gizmo that may have pushed this concept to a new level.

Kickbee is a cool gadget that senses when baby is active and tweets when it detects baby has kicked mommy.  The concept behind the technology is simple however the electronics are truly amazingly complex.

Kickbee is a stretchable band worn by a pregnant mother. Vibration sensors are attached directly to the band, and are triggered by movement underneath. The application receives the sensor values and analyzes them. When a kick is detected, a message is posted to the social messaging service Twitter via its API.
