The benefits of meditating are exponential, yet the journey to finding one's inner calm can be a struggle. And while the advances in Smart Homes come on in leaps and bounds with the aim to make life easier, the new generation of “mind machines” promise to get us to our mindfulness goals faster, deeper, and better—often even without needing us to “learn” how to meditate.
These pieces of zen-tech often seem to understand our failings. Several innovations even remove the need for mobile apps, thus mitigating our natural temptation to drift to our screens.
Here are five zen-tech gadgets that combine human and manufactured technology to make your home and life calmer.
Breathing is the bedrock of any mindfulness practice, and Melo aims to guide you to calmer breath without ever having to look at a screen.
A beautifully simple pebble-shaped device that sits comfortably in your palm, Melo allows you to choose between haptic feedback and/or LED patterns to coach you through three different breathing exercises.
It's also portable, so taking a discreet #melomoment wherever you feel the need is possible.
