Wearable fertility tracker

ovu_two.jpg

Ov is a lace armband with a thermistor on the inside that tracks the Basal Body Temperature (BBT) of a woman and allows her to find out when she is most fertile.

The thermistor takes the temperature in the underarm and tracks the changes from day to day. When the change is significant enough to imply a hormonal change (most commonly caused by ovulation), the device triggers a melody to play.

By Katie Bauer. See it at the ITP Spring Show 2006 - May 9 & 10.

LOL That is too hilarious. Can you imagine sitting in a meeting and your arm pit starts playing a tune to indicate it's a good time to make babies!?!?!

Craig:

Hmmm shall we play 'Name that Tune'? rollin on the floor laffin here geesh

The armband is cute enough to be wearable. Just hope the melody is cute enough to attract practicable males. It's rather taugh nowadays to find any.

Judy:

Well, I guess it is better than the other option- It could vibrate- which would start a giggle......wait, maybe this is better???
