Palvok - A serious beeminder competitor?

Maneesh Sethi, the behavior change expert that hired a girl off Craigslist
to slap him in the face every time he got distracted from working on his
thesis, has come up with something even weirder: A wristband that let your
friends electroshock you if you don’t stick to your habits. It may even act
as an alarm clock that give an electric shock you if you snooze too many
times. Wakeup guaranteed!

The video below, an interview on habit change, was very interesting so I
recommend watching in its entirety. However the link jumps directly to the
good part with a demonstration of the shock function.

Yeah, Maneesh is a cool dude/friend :slight_smile:

I’m excited to see Pavlok once it launches.
