The “NatoStation” (NS), designed by Colombian designer Nelson Ayala, is a virtual reality simulator wherein the user experiences visual, acoustic and sensory sensations similar to the prenatal environment.

Featuring an ergonomic and dynamic egg shape, the NS lets the user assume a position comparable to the fetal position, so he/she could virtually escape the atmosphere for a moment and relax in comfort. To experience the calm seclusion, you need to wear a helmet that includes a device to scan your initial brain waves and determine the level, speed and intensity of the stimulation experienced, through video technology, during the course of the session. The helmet emits Mega Brain strobe lights that change the brain frequencies to 8 Hz low alpha waves, epitomizing a state of deep relaxation.
