The W/Me is a wristband sensor that monitors a wearer's feelings via the autonomic nervous system.

Remember the mood ring? For those of you who never fell prey to its clever form of chicanery, the trinket claimed to reflect the wearer's mood by changing colors throughout the day.

However, with the proliferation of high-tech wearable health devices, a fully functional ‘mood ring' may be an actual possibility.
