We spend 1 hour and 50 minutes per day stressed on average. Rushed. Frustrated. We are deaf to the discord created in an attempt to meet the demands of our own world on a daily basis. We are so overwhelmed that we forget to take care of ourselves. We are often late to take care of our mental health. In an effort to reshape our perception of our daily encounters to alleviate our stress, OTO collects stress outputs from the body through biometric tracking and transforms them into relieving inputs of sounds for the user as a form of preventive sound therapy for stress through bone conduction.
