Studying rhythm is beneficial to us in a variety of ways which we don’t even notice. It creates more neuron connections, improves our moods, and trains our brains unknowingly. The R/M AI System is a different type of wearable tech that aims to train your body and mind to stay in rhythm for a variety of applications.
The design consist of a headband and wristband equipped with highly sensitive movement sensors that work in tandem with your smartphone app. They work in tandem to send tactile, audio, and light feedback to the wearer in order to stay in rhythm. Let’s say you’ve been traveling and are experiencing jet lag. The system can help you get back into routine by keeping light on your eyes and coaching you to stay awake or keep moving until it’s the right time to doze off in order to reset your sleep cycle. If you’re a professional swimmer, you might wear just the wristband so it alerts you when you’re falling behind pace. The same can be used for a musician who struggles with natural rhythm sensing. The possibilities are endless!
