Aren't babies fascinating? Here's a fun "augmented reality" website that lets you imagine yourself holding a developing baby in your hand - or in your tummy! This is an educational experience that lets you see just how big the average baby is during each of its nine months in the mother's womb, from embryo to fetus to full-term baby. If you see something you like, click on the "Take a picture" button to save a photo of you with a developing baby to your desktop, or to share the picture with your friends on facebook.

    Download the Marker
  1. To begin, click here to download the marker. Print it, and cut the marker out on the dotted line.
  2. Push “Allow” in the window above to turn on your webcam. A big "Play" button will appear, click on that to start the show.
  3. When the computer sees the marker properly the words “How Big is the Baby?” will be floating above the paper.
  4. Push the numbers 1 to 9 on your keyboard to see the baby at different sizes. You can also use the left/right arrows on your keyboard or in the window. There is a "full screen" button, in that mode only the arrows work to select the different babies. A voice provides more information, click on the "mute" button if you prefer.
