This is the Pavlok
wristband, due out next year:
Its a bolt-emblazoned bracelet that promises to [turn] your resolutions into reality by zapping you with an electric shock every time you give into a bad habit.
How it works: You program your goals into Pavloks smartphone app. Then you choose what happens if you dont meet them.
Those habits might include snoozin.
Spending too much time on social media
Or skipping the gym.
Youll assign a consequence to each, ranging from small nudges like using vibration or sound to remind you to get back on track
To large penalties, like paying cash fines, or getting (quite literally) jolted:
The latter may sound crazy, but according to Pavloks CEO Maneesh Sethi: Sometimes crazy works.
