A new bracelet from Amazon will shock you to break your bad habits like eating fast food or biting your nails. Here are the specifics:
Amazon is now selling the Pavlok bracelet that promises to help you sort your life out, whether your issue is spending too much time on the internet, biting your nails or oversleeping.
Basically, every time you step out of line, the strap will give you a 350-volt electric shock, just to give you a gentle reminder.
And to give you a bit more of an incentive to be good, your mates can even download an app which means they can give you a buzz if they catch you eating an extra slice of cake or going on a spending spree.
According to the manufacturer: "Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain's language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless 'zap' of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit), quickly conditioning your mind to associate an 'unpleasant' feeling with your bad habit... and stopping it all together."
Okay. Seems like this has actually been out for a while and is gaining traction now because it's on Amazon. I bite my cuticles really bad and would consider getting this. Would you?
