XHA: Breathing and Meditation Aid #WearableWednesday
XHA is a wearable device that monitors your breath and helps maintain focus. The project comes from Andriana Nassou, a product designer/engineer. (H/t Wearable).
xHA is a tool that helps you learn to maintain your focus during meditation. xHA senses when you lose focus and gives you a gentle reminder to bring your attention back to your practice by playing the audio of your own breath in real-time. When you have resumed focus, the audio disappears so you can focus on your natural breathing.
In this way, xHA guides you to develop the skill of using your breath as a feedback cue towards a more effective meditation practice.
