Mindfulness Alpha Testing!!!

Great news, everyone! We've gotten permission to allow some (limited) amount of alpha testing on non-Proteus employees! See below:

Proteus Biomedical invites the self-experimentation community to alpha test our consumer health & wellness technology. Selected experimenters will receive supplies to run a four-week experiment.

Proteus makes a torso-worn patch that characterizes activity, sleep and other metrics via accelerometery, heart rate, and surface temperature.. Additionally, a safe, ingestible sensor shaped like a tablet communicates the time of ingestion when swallowed.

Mindfulness

The power of suggestion is real. Our own early experiments suggest that labeling ingestible sensors – Mindfulness Pills – with different attributes and taking them per self-defined guidelines can prompt positive behavior change through increased mindfulness and automatic correlation of ingestion and behavior.

  1. You'll have a proposal from me before the end of the week. Would be very pumped to be a tester, and try to help publicize amongst the QS community in DC.

  2. Noted. I think at least one of us from deltaself.com would be overjoyed to play with this device.
