If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be back in your mother's womb, you may just be able to experience it thanks to the Nelson Ayala 'NatoStation.' A seated simulator, it ergonomically takes on the shape of an egg so that users can assume a similar fetal position as when inside a womb.

By donning a special helmet, the Nelson Ayala 'NatoStation' emits strobe lights in order to create a calm environment based on current brain activity, while also canceling out noise.
