As modern life becomes more stressful and people become more overloaded, it can be helpful to take a few minutes each day to pause and meditate, especially when something like The Lotus makes it so easy to do.

The Lotus takes the form of an app-connected flower and serves as a visual reminder and simulation of a meditative experience. The flower uses biosensor technology to track your brainwaves and see when you've become fully relaxed. In a fully meditative state, the lotus petals will open up and begin cycling through colors. Although meditation is a solo activity, The Lotus is designed so that when it lights up, you're able to practice with a companion, see their progress and encourage each other to keep at it.

The Lotus is currently part of a Kickstarter campaign, aiming to raise $64,000.
