AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – If emotions are getting the better of you while trading online, The Rationalizer may be just the thing to tell you when it’s time to take a break.
The prototype unveiled by Netherlands-based Philips Electronics and ABN AMRO aims at sensing day traders’ stress levels so they can “time-out, wind down and re-consider their actions,” the companies said Tuesday.

Users wear a device called the EmoBracelet that senses stress and makes an accompanying lighted bowl, or EmoBowl, change color and flicker from yellow to red as emotions become more intense.

…. “Their behavior is influenced by emotions, most notably fear and greed, which can compromise their ability to take an objective, factual stance,” they said.
