Philips Designs Sensor for 'Relax to Win'

Orange Brand Futures group, the major UK cell phone service providers, developed the computer game 'Relax to Win' with Media Lab Europe. The game is based on the concept that the more you relax, the more you will achieve in the game.

In order to realize the concept, Philips Design designed a device to measure the player's galvanic skin response and sends the data by wireless connection to a PC or cell phone screen. To play the game, simply slide it between any two fingers and relax. You see yourself on screen as a friendly dragon; the more you relax the more your dragon will float and eventually fly. the mesh-like textile material contains sensors but is soft to the touch.

Even when not in use, the mysterious form is not out of place worn on the body like a piece of jewelry or a key ring.
