This Bra Can't Be Unhooked Unless it Senses You're in True Love

Courtesy imageCourtesy image Here's something I'm intrigued by but am not really sure whether is useful or not: A lingerie company in Japan has developed a bra that has a built-in "True Love Tester."


Using complex sensors that gauge your physiological responses in specific situations, the bra can determine whether you're in love--and will allow itself to be unclasped only if all signs points to amor.

"When we fall in love, we experience an instant boost in excitement," says a human sexuality specialist working with the bra manufacturer. "That feeling is unlike any other excitement we encounter in life. When excited, the adrenal medulla secretes catecholamine, which affects the autonomic nerve and stimulates the heart rate. A built-in sensor reads the woman's heart-rate signal and sends it to a special app via Bluetooth for analysis."


Depending on the result, the bra will lock or unlock.
