blurb: a device that uses real-time brain wave and stress level data to alter a user's sense-experience and mood by replacing or hiding stressors in visual context to potentially manage anxiety and apprehension. essentially, the device catches high levels of stress from user, uses computer vision to detect potential stressors in user's perspective, and then either blurs them or replaces them from sight. meant to be worn as a pair of glasses akin to google glass.
