Doppel came about from some research into our body’s reaction to non-chemical stimulants like music. What the research shows, and what most of us have experienced, is that when we listen to music we love it gets us going. Dopamine is released and we feel a rush of energy.

While exploring ways to emulate this sensation without sound the team inevitably ended up with a wearable. The device is the same as a watch only in appearance. Behind the tiny glass window is actually a small haptic motor. Once calibrated the device will gently vibrate in a similar rhythm to a heartbeat.

The team conducted an independent study to confirm the validity of their device. It turns out that the simple sensation of a rhythmic vibration on the skin doubles focus. Jack Hooper tells me that the test subjects were so amazed that many of them backed the project on Kickstarter.

The device has had a pretty radical evolution but has ended up with a good level of class. The case is machined metal in various colours, though materials may change depending on the number of orders they get.

Doppel is looking for £100,000 so they can iron out some kinks, manufacture and produce the device. Highly recommend backing it.
