The ‘KipstR’ is a new 3D-printed wearable, created at Manchester Creative Studio by two teenage students working with Virgin Media. The band links to a TiVo box and uses a pulse-oximeter to sense whether the wearer is asleep or awake. If they are asleep it will pause, record or resume a show, as appropriate. A prototype was trialled over the Christmas period.
