Sorry ladies, Microsoft smart bra doesn’t really exist

Microsoft has been getting calls from all over the world about a bra!

Reports came out that a group of Microsoft researchers had designed a bra prototype with sensors that detected stress levels that could cause a woman to overeat.

The story went viral and everyone wanted to know if the smart bra would be offered as a Microsoft product.

The prototype sends a bluetooth signal to the wearer, alerting her that she was under extra pressure and in danger of reaching for a doughnut.

There’s just one problem, the people at Microsoft Research told Q13 FOX News it was only a prototype and Microsoft has no plans to develop a bra with sensors — that the prototype was just one part of a broader topic of affective computing, or designing devices that sense and react to people’s moods.

    I think that would be awesome because your family or boss could see proof that they're stressing you out if you so choose. It could also be a warning that a hot flash is on the way. Not that we need much help w/ that one.
