This wristband will shock you!

Pavlok wristbandBranded as a “personal coach for your wrist”, the Pavlok wristband uses mild shock therapy to discourage any bad habits. The idea is that over time your brain will form a connection between the action and punishment that you won’t need the shock. It is equipped with a Bluetooth radio linked to a smartphone app that monitors your actions. It is also monitored by a GPS tracker and a Chrome browser add-on that tracks websites you want to refrain from clicking on. Program the bracelet to change a variety of habits; if you don’t complete your goal, you get a shock (up to 300 volts). On the other hand, if you do something good, like waking up early as planned or completing an assignment then a financial reward awaits or friends will be notified of this accomplishment.
