Dove cleanses negative Facebook apps

Dove cleanses negative Facebook apps

Personal care brand Dove launched a new app that allows you to replace Facebook ads and sponsored stories with compliments and women-empowering quotes.

Why it matters

This app is a clever way to get rid of negative online ads that encourage women to transform their bodies and it will certainly draw criticism and complaints from some advertisers. But considering the huge amount of online advertising that reinforces negative body stereotypes, will other brands rush to produce this type of app that spreads positivity – no matter the category?

A teddy bear for safer sleep

People who suffer from sleep apnea – a sleep disorder characterised  by abnormal pauses in breathing – now have a new device that could help them get a better night’s sleep. Japanese scientists have developed a teddy bear shaped pillow (called Jukusi-kun) that monitors a person’s frequency of breath and blood oxygen levels. The bear then wakes them up with a “paw move” to correct their sleeping position.

Touchless heartbeat

This new app helps you measure your heart beat by simply holding your face in front of your smartphone. It measures the light reflected from your face and translates it into a measurement. This app, although not intended to replace healthcare tools is a very useful asset to help people measure their heart rate and take action if needed.
