Abstract
(EN) A wearable electronic device such as a wrist watch (60) is supplied with conventional clock with two pointers (32,33). The device displays a parameter indicative of how 'cool' the wearer has been over the past period as a function of time, using the time axis of one of the pointers (32,33). 'Coolness' can be based on the measurement of related physiological parameters like heart-rate, body temperature, movement, skin resistance or muscle activity. 'Coolness' of a person is understood as being the ability to cope with stress. Therefore, the stability of physiological parameters can be used to derive a signal for the subjective trait called 'coolness'. All physiological parameters can be measured by sensors (10) in the watch (60) or in the strap (50). The invention is used as a gadget for self expression and emotional feedback.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif électronique vestimentaire, tel qu'une montre-bracelet (60), qui est équipé d'un mécanisme d'horloge conventionnel avec deux aiguilles (32, 33). Ce dispositif affiche un paramètre qui indique le degré de 'relaxation' du porteur en fonction du temps sur une période passée, en utilisant comme axe du temps l'une des aiguilles (32, 33). Le degré de 'relaxation' peut s'appuyer sur la mesure de paramètres physiologiques liés, tels que le rythme cardiaque, la température corporelle, les mouvements, la résistance cutanée ou l'activité musculaire. Le degré de 'relaxation' d'une personne signifie sa capacité à gérer le stress. Il est ainsi possible d'utiliser la stabilité de paramètres physiologiques pour dériver un signal relatif au trait subjectif qu'est le degré de 'relaxation'. Tous les paramètres physiologiques peuvent être mesurés par des capteurs (10) situés dans la montre (60) ou dans le bracelet (50). Cette invention peut être utilisée comme un gadget pour pouvoir exprimer sa personnalité et obtenir une rétro-information émotionnelle.
