Back when I was in uni, my residential hall’s student services tried to help lower our stress levels by holding a DIY stress ball workshop. That included the less than glamorous process of double-bagging bulk-bag flour with two balloons. It was an interesting workshop, but let’s be real, a flour-filled balloon could only do so much once midterms and finals roll around. Thankfully, now there are smarter versions of stress balls that do not involve party supplies. Meet SimyBall, the smart, adorable stress ball with built-in biofeedback that lets you play your stress away.

Work Hard, Play Hard

The signature feature of SimyBall is the series of companion games, making it the perfect de-stressing toy for adults and children alike. The series of SimyGames, as they’re called, include mental training methods by using your bio-data for activation and relaxation. These data include skin conductance, pulse, temperature, and more. The games are great for when you’re taking a break, or training for better concentration and focus.

Keep Track of Your Health

De-stressing is great, but it’s also important to know that you’re not overstretched on a long-term basis. During and after each play session, the SimyCoach will support you with tips and tricks to relax. The SimyLife app also gives you daily relax scores on the color-coded, easy-to-read Stressometer, so you know how you’re faring day to day.

Dress SimyBall Up!

Of course, part of the fun of getting something new is personalizing it. We dress our phones up with different cases, and you can dress SimyBall up with the SimyBall sleeve, made of high-quality silicone. It comes in a variety of colors, so you can decorate it to suit your moods or the season. The squishy silicone also gives a different tactile sense for you to play with.
