Smart bra combats emotional eating

Smart bra combats emotional eating
A smart bra designed to stop women emotionally eating has been developed by Microsoft, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Rochester and the University of Southampton. The undergarment, which is the result of a study titled Food and Mood: Just-in-Time Support for Emotional Eating, features sensors in its cup pockets and side panels that detect changes in heart rate, skin temperature and stress levels. This data is then transmitted via Bluetooth to a smartphone app that provides the user with ‘emotional eating alerts’.

Sleep better with smart EEG sensor headphones

Sleep better with smart EEG sensor headphones
Kokoon is the first headphone comfortable enough to be slept in and smart enough to know how and when to adjust music as users fall asleep and wake. Audio is one of the best ways to help us relax and switch off naturally. Sleep clinics prescribe thousands of audio based techniques daily and millions of us use audio to relax each day. For the first time we can listen to our music, audiobooks or sleep techniques comfortably in bed without fear that they’ll wake us back up again.
