DUPLICATE ENTRY: SEE http://pldb.media.mit.edu/Log.pl?ID=3687 Have you ever wondered which emails, phone calls, or meetings cause you the most stress or anxiousness? Well, now you can find out. A wristband sensor measures electrodermal activity (EDA), which responds to stress, anxiety, and arousal. Each time you read an email, place a call, or hold a meeting, your phone will measure your EDA levels by connecting to the sensor via Bluetooth. The goal is to design a tool that enables the user to attribute levels of stress and anxiety to particular events. FEEL allows the user to view all of the events and the levels of EDA that are associated with them: with FEEL, users can see which event caused a higher level of anxiety and stress, and can view which part of an event caused the greatest reaction. Users can also view EDA levels in real time.
