    Now you don’t really need to spend a good few hours leaning back on the recliner at your shrink’s office trying to figure out just what actually boils the volcano inside you. Instead, simply strap on the Q Sensor, a magical little device that figures out just exactly what overwhelms you and points a finger out to your main causes of stress. The device was designed and developed by a company called Affectiva based in Waltham, Massachusetts and uses two small silver electrodes on the underside that send out a low electric current to measure skin conductance that rises along with physiological levels of stress.


    It’s about time you found out what pushes your nerves to their limits. Strap on the Q Sensor now, and save keep away the stress causing factors!
