Microsoft’s Boob Computer Helps Women Avoid Stress-Eating What In the World?

+

I know we’ve long known that guys’ brains are in their dicks, but a new design in the works from Microsoft seems to suggest that women do a lot of their thinking with their boobs. The smart bra design will contain sensors that keep track of your heart rate and heat levels, and then send signals back to your smart phone.(h/t Slate). Cool, but what in the good fuck would you want that?

It’s because you’re fat of course. Or at least worry about it. Ladies be watching their calories.

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

Mood data was provided to the wearer via a smartphone app in order to highlight when “emotional eating” was likely to occur.

A team from Microsoft’s visualisation and interaction research group embedded an electrocardiogram and electro-dermal activities sensors as well as a gyroscope and accelerometer in the bra.

In their paper, the researchers say using a bra “was ideal because it allowed us to collect EKG [electrocardiogram] near the heart”. BBC

Also near the heart? All of you ladies to me. Don’t change, you’re beautiful just the way you are. Unless you have a computer on your tits telling you to avoid ice cream, in which case I’m out of here.
