What is a smart bra?

  • Whoever doubted the magic of true love? In the age of wearable technology, true love unlocks a high-tech bra. Japanese lingerie maker Ravijour, released a smart bra called True Love Tester that can only be unhooked if the user is truly in love.

  • The smart bra comes with sensors that feeds the heart rate of the wearer to a smartphone application via Bluetooth. The mobile application analyzes the heart rate and determines whether it will unhook the bra or not.

  • "When excited, the adrenal medulla secretes catecholamine, which affects the autonomic nerve, and stimulates the heart rate," explained a doctor in the instructional video about the product.

  • While the brain is part of the central nervous system that controls almost everything, humans also have an autonomic nervous system that affects uncontrollable factors such as the heart rate, rate of breathing, perspiration, digestion, and sexual arousal, among others.

Now You Can Bring Your Mind In-tune with Your Body

  • The Smart Bra tracks your breathing, and heart rate variability (HRV), key physiological indicators of the balance between stress and your wellbeing. The biofeedback gives you guidance at the time when an unbalance is first detected, so small actions such as taking a deep breath can effectively take you back on track.
