StressEraser Portable BioFeedback Device

Posted in Biometrics by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2010

There are lots of ways to beat stress. Some work well, some not so well. This device looks like a good gadget that will help. It’s called the StressEraser Portable BioFeedback Device. Just slide your finger in and it tells you your heart rate.

That way you know when it’s time to calm down. It also tells you how to calm yourself down through rhythmic breathing by monitoring the peaks and dips of your heart rate. The screen goes all haywire when you are stressed and will get all smooth as jazz when you calm down.

Motorized keyboard moves to relieve stress

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 7th, 2010

Generally we like our keyboards to sit still, but what if a moving keyboard meant less repetitive stress injury? That’s the idea here. This ergonomic USB keyboard from Smartfish moves slightly, just every so often, depending on your workload, which keeps your wrists from aching and helps you avoid repetitive stress injuries.

Look for it in mid-April for $150. Who knows, it may actually help for once. The two halves move apart and together and the base vibrates just a bit once or twice an hour to massage your wrist muscles. You shouldn’t even be aware of the movement.

StressWatch will calm you with colorsWe live in stressful times. Traffic is stressful, so are long lines at the grocery store. So is your job, since your boss is always on your case. Oh and all of those bills. It’s enough to make you scream. Serenity now! The StressWatch can help. Maybe.

It’s a design concept that reads heart rate and body temperature data and then interprets them as levels of stress on the trippy screen. The black bar at the bottom is the stress line. And if the cool colors on the watch turn into hot pink, red or orange, man you are stressed. The idea is that it will help you know when you need to calm down.

K-9 Calming VestFrom the pic it looks like Fido is wearing a bulletproof vest, but this is actually a K-9 Calming Vest that keeps your furry friend feeling safe and secure under stressful conditions. Apparently it will sooth any anxiety they may be feeling while wearing it, while scamming you out of your hard earned dough.

It will stop them from running under the bed to hide during such stressful things as fireworks or thunder for instance. It costs $36 and comes in various sizes. If you buy one let me know. I have a bridge to sell you too.

Modified Roomba detects stress, runs away from its abuser

Modified Roomba detects stress, runs away from its abuserThis modified Roomba avoids users when it detects high levels of stress. Which is good for it because otherwise it would just be willing to take your abuse if you’re the sick sort that kicks puppies, cute kitties and helpless roombas.

It was designed by researchers at the University of Calgary, who interact with the bot via a headband for gamers that detects how much muscle tension is in your face. The more tension, the more space the Roomba will put between itself and you. The idea is to explore human and machine interaction on an emotional level.

Sweety Buddy device helps with stress
With our lives being so hectic, it’s hard to de-stress. Which is probably why we turn to the computer to help us. After all, that’s where many of us spend large amounts of time. The Sweety concept will help. Or so they claim. Personally, I don’t see how.

This thing looks like Kenny from South Park. After he died and attained ghostly form. Now on a flowery surf board. He’s come back not to haunt, but to calm you via graphic patterns on the screen under his hood. Apparently Sweety can also play interactive games with you as you manipulate its soft body by squeezing. That aint right at all.

Robotic Massager will rub the stress away

Robotic Massager will rub you the right way
First of all, this thing looks like it needs a Hello Kitty face on it. It’s basically a pink and white torpedo for women to lay on top of and get touched inappropriately by it’s robot innards. Since it’s a robot, it won’t have to worry about sexual harassment. It’s got wheels too, so once you get your wife good and relaxed, you can just wheel her wherever the hell you want and go play the Wii.

It’s ridiculously expensive at $13,500, but what the hell, it’s got a huge pink visor and a touchscreen. It also “automatically adapts its speed and pressure to the body part it’s massaging,” and since you are laying out all that dough, they give you a built-in audio system too. If you ask me it looks like a futuristic hospital bed that’s only going to fit women on the very thin end of the scale. I guess the moral of the story is to quit eating three square meals at Mickey D’s for a month and only then will you be privileged enough to get a robot massage.
