High-tech Bra Senses Stress

Microsoft has developed a bra to help women stop overeating. Women from all over the world are tweeting about this story. There are many different opinions about this.  Here’s my take it. Please feel free to add your comments.

Microsoft has developed a bra with special embedded sensors. The idea is to monitor heart and skin activity to provide an indication of mood levels. The bra has an embedded electrocardiogram, electro-dermal activities sensors, gyroscope, and accelerometer. The aim is to for the bra to notify the wearer’s cell phone when they are under stress to prevent emotional over-eating.

I know that wearable technology is the “in” thing and it is increasingly being used to monitor a range of health conditions. Hopefully this research will lead to some different future breakthrough.

Microsoft says that the bra is not expected to become a viable consumer product. Good thing….because as women, we don’t need technology to tell us when we are stressed. Give us some technology that can help relieve the stress instead!
