|A shocking ride!|
As Maneesh got into my car I could not help to notice an odd watch like device on his wrist… but it was not a watch at all… and I was shocked when I found out what it was… literally! As it turns out Maneesh has a start up company called PAVLOK… and the gizmo on his wrist (and app.) is their product.
The idea here is that bad habits are hard to break… so PAVLOK associates classical pavlovian conditioning to break these habits. According to their website ( www.pavlok.com ), Pavlok associates a mild zap with your bad habit, training your brain to no longer like the habit. It also offers a beep or vibration for those who are a bit wimpish!
Maneesh was on his way to make a presentation on his company at a Start-Up meeting of like minded people. Before he was delivered to his destination he asked me if I would like to try it. I was parked behind a car at a red light… and offered my wirst, while looking at the road… the sample zap was set so high that I lunged forward and I almost hit the car in front of me. Maneesh apologized for the rest of the ride as he had not realized it was set to the highest level! It would certainly stop me in my tracks from continuing on with a bad habit.
Interested in the product? Well Maneesh will be on Shark Tank May 20th (already recorded)… of course I know the results and what Mr. Wonderful says at the end might shock you as well, so check it out!
