Change your mood with Doppel- performance-enhancing wearable technology

doppel helps you focus or relax on demand. It works with your body’s natural response to rhythm to let you set your pace.

Have no control over your mood swings? Want to control them? Certainly, you can now! A new wearable device is being invented; called Doppel; which can calm and change your mood and provide you with an energy boost. Doppel is similar to wristwatch in appearance.

The Doppel synchronizes with the wearer’s body and allow them to control their emotions and feelings. Unlike other wearable’s, the Doppel is not centered on measuring wellbeing but rather goes for giving an emotional jolt.

The device works on the same principle that upbeat or downbeat music can affect performance, either mental or physical. The doppel team, which includes engineers, scientists and designers, met while studying a course researching psycho-physiology, co-run by Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art. Co-creator Andreas Bilicki explained regarding the device, “Doppel, as it stands, delivers two separate rhythms – one high and one low. The high rhythm essentially delivers a rhythm which is higher than your resting heartbeat, and the lower one which is lower.”

He further added, “It works in a very similar way as to when you listen to upbeat or downbeat music. So, in the same way that upbeat music can excite you or bring you up, make you more alert; doppel does this. And it does the same thing with the downbeat tempo which you feel calming you down and even helping you into sleep.” The device can be used by pressing the face to speed up the pulse or stroking the casing to slow the beat.

Doppel has already been successfully tested by psychologists at Royal Holloway University of London and they found it useful. The project needs to raise £100,000 by means of its Kickstarter page before 16 July on the off chance it wants to achieve its funding objective. Early pricing starts at £70, with standard estimating for the stainless steel model set for £95.
