There is no way that you use a shock collar to train your beloved dog, but you would not mind using on yourself if it means breaking your worst habits, If that’s the case, then your day has come, the Pavlok is a portable unit that you can zap of electricity and it is now on Indiegogo, with its designer hopes to raise $ 50,000 to develop more features and start mass production. To train yourself to stay away from bad habits and continue to do the good, you will need to program the Pavlok application – for example, you can ask to zap you wake up if you hit snooze on your alarm twice. The good news is that you can set the power bracelet zaps you with 17 to 340 volts, so you can adjust accordingly and make sure that each is not strong enough to really hurt.
According to the Indiegogo page of the device, its creator is working on the integration of IFTTT and also opening the platform Pavlok so anyone can make an app to go with it. He even listed some tie-ups available software, such as loading the bracelet via IFTTT zap you if you send a message to an ex and the loud beep and put you in trouble every time you walk into a McDonald’s in the using a navigation application, or to remind you to walk more when paired with an application exercise.
When we saw Pavlok earlier this year, the prototypes cost $ 250 each, but now you can enter for a $ 125 Indiegogo if you can wait until it ships on April 2015 at the earliest. Moreover, Sethi is no stranger to the idea of receiving pain break bad habits. Back in 2012, he hired a girl out Craigslist for, uh, slap him every time he went on Facebook, something he claims quadrupled productivity.
