    New Bra Could Help Women Stop Stress Eating December 4, 2013 at 2:54PM by Zoe Bain | 25 Comment What if every time you were in a bad mood or feeling extra stressed you could get a friendly reminder that you probably aren't stuffing your face because of an empty stomach? That's the idea behind an experimental bra created by Microsoft Research. According to Discovery News , sensors built into the bra take into account heart rate, respiration, skin conductance, and movement. The data is then streamed to a smartphone app, which allows researchers to understand the wearers' moods and understand body changes that could lead to stress and ultimately stress eating. The experiment was simply a research project, but who knows, in a few years women might be getting advice straight their bras.
    What do you think of the stress-busting bra?




    ********************
    I'm betting this was designed by men. They really aren't as interested in controlling mood eating, as they are concerned about saving their butts when they do something stupid at home..... "ah, Honey? I'm getting a reading that you are sorta stressed... here, let me take out that trash now." A week late, but better late than never, right??

    Well Kathy that's what the round lil vacuum cleaner is for. Did you know that they have an attachment just for what you're talking about. It's programmable from what I understand!

    To this, I have to add. If you really want to know what vacuum attachements can do. watch Jeff Daniels' " Super Sucker". It's a howlingly raunchy romp of a video.
