Ok, a side project of mine, Prana, is live on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1MDvCpT

I'm super excited to finally have a tool to support using breathing techniques (and posture) to improve health and well-being. I've recommended specific breathing patterns to patients (and family) for years - it's amazingly effective for stress reduction, improving focus or energy, and many other applications. But implementation and encouragement have been difficult, since not everyone has access to a private Ayengar yoga teacher. So i've been lucky to help guide development of a device that meets my own needs and specifications.

And it'll augment an Apple Watch nicely, since you can't track breathing from the wrist. ;-)
Make the most of your sitting time with Prana, the groundbreaking wearable that helps you improve your breathing and posture.

People attempting to quit smoking without professional help are approximately 60 percent more likely to report succeeding if they use e-cigarettes than if they use willpower alone or over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies such as patches or gum, finds a large survey of smokers. The study surveyed 5,863 smokers between 2009 and 2014 who had attempted to quit smoking without the aid of prescription medication or professional support. 20% o...
