Colors for Health

This is going to get a little hippie and spiritual so hold on. It’s common to focus on emotions while ignoring or having any awareness of what that goes on inside our body. This lack of understanding between the two can lead to health problems, for serious. So if we could keep track of how our emotions and bodies relate, what would that look like?

This portable device lets the wearer express emotions with colors by correlating them with biometric data. The idea is to create another way to externalize how we feel in a language anyone can understand. Someone walking down the street with flash red might be upset, in a hurry, or angry. A computer keeps track of your colors, sort of a diary of emotions that can be turned into choreographed motion graphic pieces.

It’s an esoteric concept but one grounded in scientifically proven models. We all react to colors and in most cases, can assign specific colors to a range of human emotions. I’d love to see this concept come to fruition.

    Beat me to it zippyflounder!

    As for the product, it sounds like it’s for a person who goes to their therapist a little too often and wants to share that experience with everyone they meet.

      I guess for the uber geek that only has inter action in second life, through vid games, has thier ipod jammed in thier ears this might be handy. Let face it anybody who would wear one is a little full of themself and anybody looking at (for) one on others is pretty clueless when it comes to normal emotional cues such as body language. I mean look if a bloke is carring a loaded gun in his hand he is NOT likely to be in a peacefull place.

    For example.
    It is possible to measure the stress according the heart rate. If this could help one to recognize the exact stressor by measuring and changing the colors we could maybe avoid negative implications of constant stress.

    • zippyflounder says:

      won’t constant monitering of your stress level serve to increase your stress, you know obsessing over somthing is BAD FOR YA.

  • Jammer says:

    Haha I kinda like it. It’s like having a personal lie detector test…which is good for the viewers not the wearers. To guys: just think you’ll now know whenever a girl is angry. LOL

    It´s really cute and I see a good point in making people aware of what´s stressing them and also what´s making them happy!

    I´d like one for myself

  • Whiteoutbf says:

  • Pierre says:

    Cool! I’d definately want one… but I guess it would be quite expensive =/

  • This paragraph presents clear idea for the new people of blogging, that truly how
    to do blogging.

  • Now that laser hair removal and other semi-permanent methods of hair reduction are on the market, becoming hair free is easier
    and less expensive. The spacing of procedures is recommended to give the follicles that were in their “resting” state or not actively growing
    during your preceding procedure to get in their active phase and grow hair.
    It’s aim is to replace outdated forms of hair removal.
    Laser hair removal works by applying a laser beam that produces energy that is absorbed
    by the dark pigments within the hair follicle. Clark places a focus on prevention of
    disease and aging, providing an array of treatments, including Upper East Side New York laser hair removal,
    Botox and dermal fillers, among other treatments.

    it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not discuss
    these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!
