Anything Good On BBC?



The biosensor device, called Pip, is gripped between the thumb and forefinger, looks a bit like a small iPod, and measures sweat and electrodermal activity associated with stress levels.
People working to manage their anxiety can then play a number of games like Relax & Race, where relaxing confers a competitive advantage. “After a couple of days,” says Miss Philips, “I had stopped taking relaxing medication, which I had been relying on due to anxiety.


The stress app designed by students at Trinity College and a former ‘Karl’s Irish funding Kickstarter of the Day ‘(July 2013) goes global.

    Looks like a small iPod?

    Ah will ya ever go an’ take a look at yourself, do you look like one of the silhouettes in those iPod ads of yore? If yes, you need help.

    If no, you need glasses mate, looks more like an obese guitar pic from here.

      Exactly! How are you supposed to relax while the irresistible urge to belt out an air guitar version of one of my many classics stirs inside of you…

        Too true. Mick flavin. The man brush shields could have been. Get down to his latest disc ‘a taste of mick’ or buy his best of ‘mick: all over you’

          Ah, that’s unfair. He’s a great guy is Brush.
          I remember one year at the Ballinasloe Horse Fair we played a storming set on the back of an artic to a largely indifferent crowd. In a fit of pique Brush ate the entire bag of veterinary-strength ketamine that represented our gig fee, and promptly disappeared through the throng. When I got back to the hotel room I was met with a wall of stench, like someone had been boilwashing Marty Morrissey’s underwear hamper in there. There was Brush engaging in…well, let’s just say he could never look a Shetland pony in the eye again after that night.
          Top guy.

            Up until Marty Morrissey’s underwear, I was going with it. Ya lost me there.

            Everyone knows Marty is a free-baller.

            Manus the quester lost his way when faces with the bifurcated brown path if Marty’s jocks. Should one bmgo the Robert burns route or not?

            Much as I’d love to take credit for that little gem, Will, that’s one of Nerney’s. Don’t taunt me…
