We spotted an intriguing health monitoring device at CES this year. The Tinké by Zensorium takes a reading of your heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen levels and heart rate variance to give you a ‘Zen’ rating. Plug the device into a smartphone or tablet, place your thumb over the two sensors for 30 seconds and you’ll get individual readings and an overall score of your health and stress.

It’s a new take on what’s becoming an increasingly crowded ‘quantified self’ industry. Watch the video below as PSFK founder Piers Fawkes takes the Tinké for a spin at CES:
