Rhythm changes how we feel and behave. This product is a psychophysiology wearable for people who want to be able to influence how they’re feeling by using a tactile rhythm (aka customized haptic feedback) — as a noiseless alternative to listening to mood-influencing music of different tempos. It is designed to tap your wrist at a pace of your choosing. “Doppel harnesses your body’s natural response to rhythm similarly to upbeat or downbeat music​, b​ut it’s a pulse you feel on your wrist rather than one you hear. This new piece of tech was founded by students at London’s Imperial College. The founders include a mechanical engineer, a theoretical physicist, a materials scientist and an industrial designer.

So what is the app for? It helps you stay calm when nervous, energized when exhausted, and tired when going to sleep.The device is still in prototype and available on Kickstarter.com. We will see if this wearable can effectively compete with the overcrowded wearable market in the coming months.
