Ladies, how many of you would you wear a bra that could potentially help you lose weight? I’m not talking about concealing or shifting weight, I’m talking about monitor-your-eating-and-losing-the-pounds – weight loss. According to Microsoft, they’re developing a new “smart bra” for women that could help stop emotional binge eating.
So how does It work? The ‘smart bra’ is fitted with sensors that monitor real-time bio-signals such as heart rate and respiration, which are key emotional signs Microsoft has identified prior to an emotional binge, and will intervene.
