Pavlok: The Wristband That Gives You An Electric Shock If You Spend Too Much

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/pavlok-the-wristband-that-gives-you-an-electric-shock-if-you-spend-too-much-a7039296.html

Now a British software company has taken that theory to new painful extremes by creating a way for people to link their bank accounts with a wristband that claims to shock the wearer out of bad habits - like spending too much.

The Pavlok wristband, which was successfully crowdfunded in 2014, can be set to monitor a user's habits and send electric shocks through the wrist when the user breaks their own rules.

Is the shock fatal if you buy a house?

This is absurd. More likely it'll give you an electric shock every time you turn down a bank loan or pay off more than the minimum credit card each month.

these have been around for a while I think.

they were supposed to be a pilot programme on some airlines, just in case passengers got a bit pissed and rowdy.

now,you get a cattle prod up your @rse if you speak against the wholesome benevolent establishment who are re-creating society for everybody's good, you ignorant,unwashed peasants just don't see it yet.

north korea is beginning to look quite tame by comaprison.

(wasn't it C.S lewis that had a bit of a rant about moral busibodies and the reign of oppression they would create?...f***in prophetic)

It just confirms the disappearance of people's grey matter - it started soon after the belated 1975 Common Market/EEC referendum. Regaining grey matter is one of the positives of Bexit but don't expect Cameron and Osborne to admit that.
