High Tech Bra Unhooks only for True Love

Many dubbed 2014 as the year of wearable technology. One company decided to take it up a notch by creating a special bra.

Japanese lingerie maker Ravijour created the True Love Tester – a bra that unhooks itself, depending on how you “feel” about someone. The high tech undergarment has a built-in sensor that monitors the wearer’s heartbeat, making sure the front clasp remains locked – unless genuine ‘excitement’ is detected. If it is, the bra will automagically open.

So, how does it work? According to the Ravijour: A sensor reads the woman’s heart rate and sends it to a special app via Bluetooth for analysis. The app then calculates the True Love Rate based on changes in the heart rate over time. When the True Love Rate exceeds a certain value, the bra hook is opened.

So to sum it up in a few words, this bra pops open when the wearer gets excited. Sounds marketable. I wonder if they considered using the tech for something a bit more useful, like in the health industry for example. And if this becomes mainstream, how fast do you think it would take before hackers find a way to high jack the bra’s sensors or compromise the app?  

The bra was developed by two men (big surprise here), and won’t be on sale anytime soon.
