LOON Labs one of the leading manufacturers of menstrual cups, an object that is used to deposit flows for the period then remove, wash and reuse. Its creators now want to go a step further and use the quantization to make it a curious wearable.
With the name of LoonCup we have what its creators claim to be the first smart menstrual cup.Thanks to a series of sensors will be able to measure and analyze the cycle to then send that data to the phone and give us a report so that we know how the body is behaving these days.
Going beyond mobile applications
LoonLab explains in his Kickstarter, this cup is able to analyze menstrual cycles, measuring the volume of fluid and check the color. Like analog models, no silicone and is completely hygienic.Connectivity is via Bluetooth 4.0 with your mobile phone.
In a diagram explaining all sensors and battery (and antenna) are on the bottom so that the electronic components are never really in the body. As explained batteries are reusable and last for six months. As seen in the diagram looks like a button cell.
Besides a mobile application (Android and IOS) will have one for Apple Watch from which we can see all the data. From what we have seen in Kickstarter is quite complete and we can see most of the information from the clock display.
The campaign takes three days running and has already achieved more than $ 8,000. If we are interested, the cheapest drink is worth $ 30 and which is put up for sale this past period will be priced at 40. The first units will arrive in the month of January. Of the projects we have seen related quantification is one of the most curious.
Today there are many mobile applications designed to manage and keep track of menstruation. We’ll see if the information they provide LoonCup sensors are able to provide data that are useful to their users.
