"Today we are announcing the shut down of Olive Labs.

(...)Despite our efforts, we have been unable to secure the funding needed to turn this vision into a sustainable business. We are no longer able to pursue the development of Olive and have decided to shut down Olive Labs."

Olivier Janin's insight:

Olive Wristband seemed to me a compelling stress management solution.  Unfortunately, they did not make it.

Test of "Spire", that tracks and helps you to improve your Breathe

Test of "Spire", that tracks and helps you to improve your Breathe | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
