Microsoft Developing Smart Bra to Combat Overeating

Updated: Wednesday, December 4 2013, 11:23 PM EST
We have smartphones and smart watches and now Microsoft is lifting and separating from those products. 

In the latest wave of wearable computers, your undergarments could help combat overeating.

The Smart Bra, being developed by Microsoft, is embedded with sensors that monitor heart activity and perspiration to track changes in your mood that may trigger binge eating. The bra intervenes by sending a signal to your smartphone which will flash a warning message telling you to step away from the fridge.

The development is based on research that shows people reach for comfort food when they are feeling stressed or bored, often without even realizing it. Microsoft researchers tested the bra on four women and found that those who were made aware of their eating habits were more likely to make health choices.

The study also revealed one setback; the batteries only lasted four hours before they had to be recharged. And while the prototype is designed for women, Microsoft says men could be candidates too.
