SqueezeMe Biofeedback Toy

I don't have kids yet, but when I hear about my niece's and nephew's hectic schedules of lessons and tests and school applications, I figure I need to start a therapy fund now for any future children I might have.
Enable Arts designed this biofeedback toy, the SqueezeMe, with ailing children in mind, but I think pretty much any child in this day and age could probably use some early lessons in controlling stress.

Squeeze Me is a squishy toy that detects certain bio-readings and responds to change with visual feedback using light patterns. An increase in one of the child's readings will cause a change in the color and number of lights displayed. Increasing or decreasing readings will cause varying light intensities and possibly animated light sequences.
SqueezeMe isn't commercially available yet, but you might be able to catch a glimpse of it at Enable Arts' exhibition during Compact Impact Night 003, which opens tomorrow. The new media and design exhibition will also feature the interactive Music Box and many other media and technology prototypes.
