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.

Spotify Is Experimenting With Artist NFT Collections

According to a recent survey, it seems that the currently tested NFT collections are just the first step toward a much broader implementation of NFTs into the platform.

NFT sales may have declined by 92 percent since September 2021, but that’s not stopping Spotify from experimenting with a new feature that lets artists display their non-fungible token (NFT) collections on the music streaming platform.

At the moment, only a small group of artists are taking part in the experiment, including Steve Aoki and The Wombats. What’s more, only select US users of the Spotify app for Android can see NFTs when they visit the profile pages of the aforementioned artists.

“Spotify is running a test in which it will help a small group of artists promote their existing third-party NFT offerings via their artist profiles,” said Spotify spokesperson. “We routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve artist and fan experiences.”

It’s important to point out that not all Spotify experiments result in new features. It all depends on the feedback the music streaming platform receives from users.

According to a survey some Spotify users have recently received, it seems that the currently tested NFT collections are just the first step toward a much broader implementation of NFTs into the platform. More specifically, Spotify seems to be thinking about allowing its users to directly purchase NFT art to support their favorite artists.

Considering how polarizing NFTs have been since their inception in 2014, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many Spotify users have immediately expressed their dissatisfaction with the idea of NFTs becoming part of the Spotify music listening experience.

Other large tech companies are also experimenting with NFTs. Instagram, for example, started testing NFT integration last week, allowing NFT creators and collectors to display their tokens on the platform. Mark Zuckerberg himself believes that NFTs and digital collectibles in general will play an integral role in the metaverse, the new iteration of the internet.
