Device interrupts you on cue

This project called “The Interruptor” is part of the larger project, “Adventures in Urban Computing” from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. The device interrupts you when you are speaking and then gives you prompts with its built in display. Check out the link for lots of pics of it in action.

    This reminds me of a device I bought years ago called the MotivAider. It was a little timer that would vibrate at an interval set by the wearer to remind them of something. It was about the size of a pager and pretty useful(though expensive). I used to use mine to remind me every 5 minutes to take a deep breath and relax, if it was possible. The only problem I ever had with mine was that it was extremely sensitive to humidity and it kept screwing up the display; otherwise I still have two of them and they’re pretty neat.
