It’s estimated that between 1 and 2 percent of the general population experience panic attacks from time to time. Unfortunately, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has given us all a new source of anxiety, and the light at the end of the tunnel still seems far away. Some mental health experts even worry that the current pandemic could be followed by a mental health pandemic of yet unknown proportions.

The good news is that there are people like biomedical engineering Adi Wallach and her mother, Dr. Orna Levin, who understand that mental health issues can be just as debilitating as physical ones and are determined to do something about them.

After years of struggle with Wallach’s panic attacks, the mother-daughter duo decided to combine their expertise and use technology to help people around the world live their lives without panic attacks. Through their Israel-based company, Dendro Technologies, they released a product called CalmiGo, which looks like an asthma pump but functions completely differently.

“The idea came about as a result of my own personal struggles with anxiety attacks,” said Wallach. “Out of this unfortunate situation, CalmiGo was conceived. I was searching for something, anything, that I could take with me that would help me get through these moments of distress. When I was unable to find an adequate solution, I decided to create a device which people could take with them everywhere they go, one that would help them stop moments of anxiousness and distress regardless of age, location, or technical abilities.”

CalmiGo is essentially a smart deep breathing companion whose purpose is to calm your breathing in stressful situations to prevent the onset of a panic attack. To accelerate and deepen the relaxation, the device features a scented element (lavender, peppermint, or bergamot) as well as an optional function that vibrates the device to provide multi-sensory stimulation.

CalmiGo is compact enough to carry in a small pocket, and studies have shown that just a few minutes each day with the device can significantly reduce common symptoms of anxiety and stress. You can order CalmiGo right now on its official website by or via Amazon.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities.
