The graduation design is inspired by Chinese Buddhism's, plucking the rosary to calm yourself down. Interactively designed, stress relieving ring. It can detect heart rate variability, detect a person's anxiety level, and visualize it on mobile or computer to give yourself better control over your emotions.
