Squeeze Me is a squishy, battery powered, water-proof toy that detects certain bio-readings and responds to change with visual feedback using light patterns. An increase in a reading 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.
It was originally intended for children who are experiencing stress or anxiety related to an illness or medical condition. It was created for the Montefiore Children’s Hospital for children receiving dialysis or cancer treatments.
It's great that we can help kids battle stress and anxiety, but if it's ever put into production, SqueezeMe would probably help a few adults as well.
