PIP Biosensor Turns Relaxation into a Game

Relax. Take it easy.

For some people, those words are easier said than done. I mean, how hard can it be to relax and just bum around? Apparently, it’s hard if you’re stressed out at work or have to broker deals that just aren’t coming together.

That’s what PIP is for. It’s a biosensor and app system that encourages you to relax by turning it into a video game.

The PIP biosensor is supposed to be held between the player’s thumb and forefinger. It communicates to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth to work with the games that it comes with. PIP works by measuring the user’s galvanic skin response, which is a natural reaction to stress.

The games encourage you to reduce this stress and relax through app’s gameplay.

For example, “Relax & Race” will have the player control a flying dragon through a race course. The more relaxed the user is, the faster the dragon flies. If the player is all tense and wound up, then the dragon will fly slower. Its makers plan on offering three games when the system first comes out.

The PIP biosensor system is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $99(USD) will get you one of your very own, plus a game of your choice.
