It’s no longer enough to have smartphones, smartwatches, smart TVs and smart cars. Now a tech company wants to bring artificial intelligence to lingerie.
BBC News - Microsoft working on a smart bra to measure mood

Researchers at Microsoft are in the process of developing a “smart bra.”

'smart bra” embedded with physiological sensors that would monitor a woman’s heart activity to track her emotional moods and combat overeating.
The sensors would signal the wearer’s smartphone, which would flash a warning message to help her step away from the fridge and make better diet decisions.


What do you think of this idea?

That's probably not the silliest idea I ever heard of, but close. Some nuts will probably buy it if it does hit the market.

WARNING TO GUYS: Don't buy one of these as a present for your wife or girlfriend!

Offensive, misogynistic, and emblematic of diet culture

Sounds like something from the Onion

Interesting....available for only half of the world's population. No little devices that can be placed in the same area for
men or is it that there are no overweight men?

Supposely, it measure the heart rate so um making a 'smart jock' it to far from the heart but very close to the second brain.

I would like to see the inventor go on 'Shark Tank' I bet they would tear them to shreads.

Why not just have a smart watch to monitor heart vitals via the pulse in the wrist.
So that it fashionable and can be worn in athletic exercisies they could make it like a swatch and call it smãtch ... dang I should patent that
