Happy 107th, Grace Hopper!

RHNWs are more interesting, anyway.
Microsoft researchers have designed a smart bra that can detect stress.
The prototype contains removable sensors that monitor heart and skin activity to provide an indication of mood levels.
The aim was to find out if wearable technology could help prevent stress-related over-eating.
Mood data was provided to the wearer via a smartphone app in order to highlight when “emotional eating” was likely to occur.
How innovative! I mean, I don’t know anyone with breasts who hasn’t been disappointed by the market’s lack of bras stuffed full of electronics to criticize them for “emotional eating”. Probably look for this device coming soon to a bra store near you!
MUCH LOVED Photographer Marc Nixon made a series of portraits of teddy bears and other stuffed animals along with their age, size and history. Some were very much loved :-)
