>> PAVLOK - MOTIVATIONAL WRIST BAND WITH CONSEQUENCES
This is one for those suckers-for-punishment who like to inflict pain for
on a recent trip I saw a presenter take it on himself to test out the
band; a personal coach that utilizes electric shocks, vibration and alerts
to break bad habits and push you to stay on track with your personal goals.
In addition to being a mobile zapper for pain - it has as a number of sensors
to track activities and movement in addition a backend for integrating into
social networks or other web services that wish to use positive and negative
feedback to get users to stick to them.
At least; you can always decide to take it off.
Not so fast! The company wants users to be accountable for their actions -
not just focus on willpower to get things done. There are two sides to the
program; one is to gain rewards for achieving your goals; or, if you bail
and do not fulfill your goals - you will be penalized financially, lose
access to your phone or suffer an electric shock.
campaign is over - you can still get an order in place, simply visit the
page and follow their promotional link using their code. I could see this
as a great motivational pusher between friends - especially if you could
inflict pain on each other (evil friends); not sure how I would feel
about strangers being able to do the same however.
