From Smart Sleep Systems to Hi-Tech Stress Balls

— October 9, 2014 — Lifestyle
In the tech-saturated age we live in, it's imperative to monitor stress to make sure that the easy mistake of overworking yourself is avoided when possible. Here, we see a collection of ways that consumers are opting to monitor stress without having to actively think too much about it or take extra time out of their day.

Biometric technology and facial recognition are commonplace terms these days and are being incorporated into new product designs more and more. The innovations within this collection often make use of said technology to effectively monitor stress and actively work to correct the imbalance with a notification, a mini exercise or even a form of light therapy that ranges from being musically based or that requires tactile responses from the user.
