If you suffer from a hectic life that causes unwanted stress levels in your body, you might be interested in a new device called the PIP Biosensor which has been designed to help you control your stress levels via play.
The PIP Biosensor is an innovative biosensor with a companion app that detects whether you are stressing or relaxing in real time. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the PIP Biosensor project and see it in action.
The PIP Biosensor can then help you learn to relax, combat stress and improve performance, says it creators and is available for both iOS and Android devices. The PIP Biosensor will work with Apple’s iPhone 4S and above, the iPad 3 and above and run on most Android smart devices. Its creators Galvanic explain a little more.
“When you are in a stressful situation your body’s flight or fight response is activated. As a result, blood is rushed to the periphery of the body which causes your sweat glands to activate. This activation changes the conductivity of your skin and is referred to as the Galvanic Skin Response (GSR). Held between your finger and thumb, the PIP captures those changes and transmits them, via Bluetooth, to your mobile device.
We’ve made the PIP super-easy to use. Just hold it between your fingertips and it will communicate your stress level wirelessly to a game or app running on your smartphone or tablet. An ever-expanding suite of gaming and entertainment apps will be available, allowing you to visualize your relaxation and master your stress in a fun and engaging way.”
The PIP Biosensor project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
