MICROSOFT WORKING ON 'SMART BRA' TO HELP STOP EMOTIONAL EATING: Microsoft researchers have been working on a "smart bra" that senses the wearer's mood and could help prevent overeating due to stress. The bra has sensors that monitor things like heart rate and respiration, key signs that Microsoft has found before an emotional eating binge. When the information is found, it's sent via Bluetooth to a cell phone, alerting the wearer that the chance of stress-related eating is about to take place. So why a bra? Microsoft said it allowed for easier EKG monitoring near the heart. Researchers are continuing to work on the design -- battery life is an issue -- and want it to be usable for both women and men.
