Personalizing screens and tech to our well-being, so that users feel and perform better.
Hannes Bend founded breathing.ai to integrate healthier habits into our everyday screen interactions. He suffered years of anxiety after trauma, and used breathwork, meditation and yoga to live a healthy and happy life. From 2014, he worked with hundreds of data- and neuroscientists, psychologists, UX/AI researchers, designers and engineers to develop award-winning (Stanford 2016) XR biofeedback technologies.
Since 2019, Hannes and breathing.ai’s team have been developing patented technology using webcam and AI to detect stress, to offer simple short personalized breaks and adaptive screen experiences. Hannes recommends a deep breath and a letting go exhale to get an immediate energy boost.
