Reduce stress with this little sensor that links to your mobile [VIDEO]

A team from Dublin, Ireland, is currently working on a new sensor to reduce stress. The PIP Biosensor will help you not only to measure but to learn to control your stress.


The PIP: A Biosensor that Helps You Relax Through Play.

The PiP is a wireless bio-sensor that accurately measures the Galvanic Skin Response – a known physiological signal related to stress. Combined with some novel video gaming strategies it is a unique, portable and powerful tool for helping people manage stress.

Available for both iOS and Android, the PIP detects whether you are stressing or relaxing in real time. You can find more information on the Calvanic website or support the PiP on its Kickstarter campaign.
