Microsoft is developing a smart bra according to a new paper. Mashable explains: “The idea is to measure your emotional state via sensors built into the bra, cross reference that with your feelings when overeating in the past, and send a warning to your smartphone if the system thinks you’re likely to reach for the jar of cookies at any minute.”
The bra has a 75% accuracy. “One thing the researchers haven’t tested yet is whether an alert informing you that you’re in an overeating mood — which the paper describes as an “appropriately timed, personalized intervention” — will actually make much of a difference.”
