Stress-o-Meter – are you at breaking point?


I don’t need a Stress-o-Meter, I just know I’m at that point through the language coming out of my mouth. But if you’re not quite so vocal, this gadget could be right up your street.

You just place your fingers into the Stress-o-Meter’s grooves, then watch the meter light up to inform you how stressed you really are. The makers claim it isn;t some cheap fairground gimmic, rather, it measures vibrations to detect stress levels.

Can’t say I’m convinced about the science – and probably one of those blood pressure monitors from the chemist could give you a better idea of your stress levels – but if you want to try it, you can pick it up for the equivalent of around £11.
