Being a student in NYC can sometimes be stressful (especially during finals!). We needed to remind ourselves to breathe so we created a mediation mandala lamp that’s powered by breath.
The wind sensor tracks exhales and inhales. We programmed the lamp to change colors with breath.
The light changes colors as you inhale and exhale. Focusing on breathing (and not thinking about anything else) is a way to meditate. Even just a few minutes of focused breathing can have an amazing effect on your mood and can reduce anxiety.
This product is for busy people who need to remember to breathe!
