Gadget tells you when you need a break

John Moe Jun 4, 2010

An Israeli tech company has come up with a new gadget that will check the stress and mood levels of people on their computers.  It uses sensors to measure your heartbeat and uses that info in conjunction with info about the age and gender of a computer user and lets a user know if they’re stressed out. Among the things that might stress you out: having sensors on your body that are connected to your computer.
