Happy Hump Day, awesome Moxie-Dude readers!
So imagine this . . .
After a very long day at work and an hour of fighting through traffic, you step out of your car and are about to open the front door and commence the third shift of your day.
You know. The one that includes cooking, cleaning up, homework and a load or two of laundry in between.
You’re tired and a little overwhelmed but you know you’ll get it done because adrenaline. And because you have hungry kids with cranky needs on the other side of that door.
Your cell phone rings.
You juggle the groceries that you picked up on the way home and reach into your purse to dig out your phone. Only you’re not calling it “a phone” right now. No, at the moment your lovely little can’t-live-without device comes with a qualifying adjective that isn’t the word “lovely”.
Who could possibly be calling you?
Is it your boss? Nope.
Your mother? Nope.
One of your kids? Nope.
It’s your bra.
I kid you not.
Researchers over at Microsoft are working on a sensor-filled bra – because apparently filling it with boobs isn’t enough.
The purpose of these sensors?
To advise you through an app on your phone when you’re stressed and most likely to head on over to the fridge to eat your emotions.
So not only will us girls have the voices in our heads to contend with, soon we’ll have our unmentionables on the seat of their pants (so to speak) just waiting to alert us when we’re on the verge of “danger” (read: eating caused by stress).
So what are they calling this invention?
“The Smart Bra.” What else?
I just have one more question:
People all over the world are DYING from diseases that we can’t seem to find a cure for and you’re working on a bra to keep us from eating???
Let me guess. A man invented this, right?
