Like this, but on your wrist.
Karl Dorn must have had some pretty nasty run-ins with his wife right around her time of the month. The inventor–who won £10,000 for creating an energy-efficient standby plug a few years ago–is now set on making “Help for Husbands” wristbands that will inform people when the wearer is P.M.S-ing.
According the Daily Mail, Dorn says that the bracelet will work in a way reminiscent of a mood ring (at least, that’s how it sounds to me):
It’s a visual aid for men so they can be a little bit more understanding at certain times of the month. Through my research I’ve found out that women’s body temperatures increase at certain times of the month. This little wristband would be temperature sensitive and change color.
It’s a very taboo issue–I was a bit concerned about putting it forward–but if you can help couples understand each other and communicate better that’s got to be a good thing.
Do you think these wristbands are a good idea? Would you wear this bracelet to “help out” the people in your life?
