    All right. So it appears that Microsoft is developing a bra to monitor the emotional states of women in an attempt to cure unnecessary trips to the fridge. And the information will be sent to an app on their smartphone warning them to get away from it.

    I would love to hear some ideas for clever hacks of this device as well as general thoughts.

    Edit: They also talk about developing a similar device for men. (Maybe man thongs will get popular? :unsure: )

    Well but it's still cool, right? Nice to know Microsoft is doing something productive with their time... ;)

    I see Microsoft is moving into the business of moving ladies' business.

    Soon after it is released, people will find out that they only need to slightly waggle the bra for a response.

    At least they'll have something to lean on if their other business ventures fail don't do so good.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    This is just a cute publicity stunt like the Amazon drone package delivery silliness. :P

    I expected something like this from a Japanese company.
    Actually, scratch that, I'm shocked it's not invented yet by a Japanese company.

    But Japanese companies are already weird. I'll bet if Nintendo released something like this, though, then we they might be able to prove that they can appeal to hardcore gamers. Maybe they could implement this into a new Wii Fit game...
    Maybe they got tired of kissing butt(s of their customers)

    The spybra from Perversoft, I fear for women with a flat chest, some already have issues with their lack of bust, this thing may make it worse.

    I would never wear a bra, bras look bad on men.

    @microsoft: it's a nice attempt, guys. But honestly? Moves like this aren't going to make your company look more sexy. Yes...I know. But...let's just say you're taking things too literally.



    Now you mention it...I'm equally shocked. The land of electronics and weird fetishes doesn't have an electronic bra?

    ...

    Well...okay, they'll probably have dozens. But apparently not a single one that isn't about weird shaped phones or cosplay uniforms.

    Erm...yeah. Nice signature, by the way. :unsure:

    I bet that's not the only thing that bra will do if you catch my drift they'll be saying this is a nice view :)
