Padding Your Bra With Emotions

Padding Your Bra With Emotions | Herstory | Scoop.it

Can't find enough reasons to hate your bra? You will soon: Microsoft is working on a smart bra to measure your mood:

The prototype contains removable sensors that monitor heart and skin activity to provide an indication of mood levels.

The aim was to find out if wearable technology could help prevent stress-related over-eating.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Insulting & sexist

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, December 21, 2013 1:29 PM

I'm sooooo not into this technology.

This is right up there with men who think women should be taking pills to "improve" their sex drive. Maybe the bra can come with little coloured flags that pop up in the middle of the cleavage? How has the human race managed to continue to reproduce up until now?

PS - Yes I always over eat when my boobs are stressed out.

Your Phone Wants You To Have Sex Now

Your Phone Wants You To Have Sex Now | Herstory | Scoop.it

There’s an app for that? Now your phone tells you when to have sex.


[T]he new trend in this technology is tracking something that women have monitored for centuries – the menstrual cycle. Given some basic information, apps like Kindara tell women when to have sex so they can plan or prevent pregnancy.

Well I almost wish I was still pre-menopause so I could try this out!!
Gracie Passette's curator insight, March 17, 2013 7:57 PM

To plan or prevent pregnancy is rather surprising!
