HabitAware’s Liv Invention

HabitAware have made a bit of a name for themselves recently in technology news by launching the Liv bracelet. I don’t think much of the name either, but the concept is cool. This is a bracelet that is designed to stop your nasty habit, whether that’s nail biting, hair pulling or sucking your thumb.

So, how does it work?

“Users start by pairing Liv with an iOS or Android device running an accompanying app, then purposely performing the targeted behavior using their dominant hand, which is wearing the bracelet.”

The sensors in the device then detect the exact movements and hand-positioning that are involved, and that data is then stored onboard. So when you perform the act again the Liv will vibrate, telling you to stop what you’re about to do! It’s a great new invention and it could help thousands of people everyday.
