De-stress: TouchPoint 

Touchpoint stress relieversLEE BELL

Your brain can turn on your stress switch in milliseconds - hundreds of times a day. And this fresh wearable company, says it can use technology to turn down the stress switch while you go about your day to restore calm, rational thinking, better performance. This tech comes in the form of non-invasive neuroscientific wearables called TouchPoints, which are based on a tech called BLAST. By doing so, they are said to relieve stress by over 70% in just 30 seconds. To prove its vibrating wearables actually worked, TouchPoint scanned my brain before and after using them. And as you can see from the data below, they managed to reduce the levels of stress (in red) on the right frontal lobe of my brain. But not for long; the CES show floor is pretty brutal..
