Graphic designer develops brain-stimulting mobile app for babies

    Your cranky old grandpa wasn’t kidding when he said soon even babies will be using smartphones.

    A graphic designer spent the morning demonstrating his BabySymbolizer Apple app to Center City mothers. Health & Science reporter passed along this information from Mies Hora, creator of HuggaMind, Inc:

    “In a world where everything has become high tech for baby, graphic designer Mies Hora is focusing on 40 years of proven research to create his baby apps. His company Huggamind, Inc developed the BabySymbolizer, a marriage of high contrast red, white and black symbols and sound to encourage brain development and motor skills.”
