Admit it. How many of us nodded off while we were watching TV over Christmas and missed the best / most important / most tear-jerking bit?
For all you sofa snoozers out there, the KipstR is here to save the day. With the help of Virgin Media, two students have created a wristband that detects when you’re falling asleep and starts to record the TV as soon as your eyes shut.
Produced with a 3D printer, the nifty little device works by monitoring your pulse. As soon as the dribbling starts, the KipstR turns into a TiVo remote that can pause or record a show. It can also resume play as soon as it senses you waking up.
Feeling dozy? Sign up for a trial on Virgin Media’s website. And never miss another minute of the Wizard of Oz again.
