It communicates its readings to your smartphone or tablet which then gives you status updates. Through this process of biofeedback, you can learn to relax.

Relax With an Aquarium

LumiLIFE is the world’s first robotic fish. The fish and its smart tank are powered wirelessly. This aquarium is designed to brighten up the atmosphere of any room and will cheer you up in no time at all. You can change to colors of the tank and fish using a mobile app as well as interact with your new pet. The fish will swim and glow without stopping thanks to the USB base which is activated via a transmitter. You can preorder your fish from Indiegogo.
