Default The EMBR Wave: a bracelet that regulates your body's temperature???

How friggin' cool would that be! The personal cooling (and heating) gadget is still in prototype [the production version has now been released under the name EMBR Wave], but it appears to have legs and could get built. According to CNET:

Quote:
"At its core, the Wristify concept is fairly simple. The device is equipped with technology that delivers warm or cool thermal pulses to slightly raise or lower your body temperature. Wristify's creators claim that modest, but quick changes in temperature on the wrist, an area of high blood flow, can make you feel several degrees cooler. The current prototype cools or warms the body at a rate of about 0.4 degrees Celsius per second."




To see more (and beg the MIT developers to turn this into a real life product and urge them to send ActiveMSers one for testing), go here:

The latest update. "Coming soon to early adopters who join our mailing list." They are getting their prototype samples soon and expect to start selling later this year. I first posted about this nearly two years ago. Can't wait to test! - D

I'm happy to announce that we'll be receiving the first prototype samples from our manufacturer next month. *With the production progress that we've made so far, we're very excited to bring Wristify to the world in 2017.*
*
In case you missed it, we also launched an online publication where we share helpful tips about environment,*mind, body resonance.*Here are our top posts of 2016:
Most read:*David on why he ditched the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit to meditate with his mother.
Most recommended:*Kristen on the awe-inspiring science behind goosebumps.
Most viewed:*Sam on why you should try dunking your face in freezing water at work.

New update! They are building out their team. 3 interns (2 from MIT, 1 from Northeastern) and a marketing manager to come. -D

Quote:
Wristify is one major step closer to becoming a consumer product and in your hands. In the past month, Wristify graduated from "Prototype Sample" to "Engineering Sample."

In plain English, this means our next batch of samples will be the first produced on an assembly line. Bringing a hardware product to market is no easy task, and we've been working with a team of manufacturing consultants to make sure we're using best engineering practices as Wristify ramps up for production.

In other news, we also completed another version of the Wristify firmware, and our team has been testing it across many use cases to make it even better. It feels great so far!

Iím extremely excited about this product. Iím also a little confused. The first quote above says that it cools the core temperature. Everything on their site says it canít actually cool the body but, makes you feel cooler or warmer.
Ultimately so long as it combats my MS meltdown, Iím in and Iíll probably want two. One for each wrist!

I received my embr wave in March, it works well. The true test will be when summer comes and I'm outside.

Default Embr Wave

Has anyone tried this long awaited thing in a hot environment. I mentioned to them on FaceBook that a clinical trial would be great for possible insurance coverage. And Iíd be happy to volunteer for the research. 😉

Default EMBR experiences? Just read their reviews.

Been getting FB ads from EMBR recently and revisited the EMBR website. Those users that had <4 stars reviews noted that the cooling action was not up to their needs. Hard for me to tell if any MS'ers had reviewed, but, thought I should weigh in here. Has anyone here tried the thing? I'm tempted, they have a 30 return policy, so I assume I can always send it back...

Default I have had the EMBRWave for several months

I have found it almost useless in the summer heat. I really only used the cold setting and set it to the extended cooling time. I am a farmer and hoped it would help me stay cool when I am selling at farmers’ Markets. It must be designed to warm people who work in offices with airconditioners .....in that I mean it is an accessory which, if anything, gives a very modest impression of warmth...
Not worth it. It really is useless. That’s my experience.
