32 Innovative Sensors

From Emotion-Sensing Office Gadgets to Motion Sensor Remotes

— November 10, 2009 — Unique
Innovative sensors are everywhere making it easy for people to cut corners and offering a ticket to laziness. Unique sensors mean you don’t have to physically lift your finger to press a button to change the TV channel or visit the doctor about your stress levels (because your stress-sensing watch will presumably keep you calm). On the other hand, the usefulness of such devices can’t be disputed—not being stressed out all the time, for instance!

From motion-sensing fitness gadgets to emotion-sensitive electronic tattoos, here are the most unique and innovative sensors available!
