Dyslexia, Web/Tech

Relax to Win

The link between dyslexia and stress is significant, I believe that a dyslexic pupil is a stressed pupil, so its good to see new technology being used to create calmer people.
The BBC is reporting on a video game that uses Galvanic Skin Response technology to measure stress. The less stressed you, the more you score. Philips designed a sensor for the game that won a design award. The developers behind the software are MindGames, part of Media Lab Europe, an independent, not-for-profit, international research institute.
