Stress-buster: Microsoft bra battles emotional overeating

    Stress-buster: Microsoft bra battles emotional overeating


    Microsoft researchers aren't just thinking about operating systems. They're thinking about undergarments with a purpose, specifically a smart bra that monitors the wearer's mood with the aim of preventing stress-related overeating.

    Mary Czerwinski, a research manager with Microsoft's Visualization and Interaction Research Group, is studying how technology can help detect stress and give people tools for dealing with it. One of her recent projects involved the creation of a bra with embedded electrocardiogram and electrodermal activity sensors (PDF), as well as a gyroscope and accelerometer.

    How about a proximity sensor? "Intruder alert! Intruder alert!"

    How are they gonna deal with stress.. stimulate the nipples? Why a bra? Whats the significance? Seems they could do the same with lots of other pieces of clothing. I think this will fail big time. Women don't want techno bras. It's hard enough to make bras comfortable and last long for ladies. They fall apart easily and the good ones are expensive. Adding techno to it will be a nightmare for women - they wont stand for the extra weight and or bulkiness.
