Check out this new piece of technology. Scientists at M.I.T. are working the kinks out of a new watch that would vibrate when you're being boring... or talking too much.
It almost seems like a joke, but there is good a reason for this technology. A smart watch that detects boring conversation can be like a "social coach" for people who might otherwise be awkward in social situations.
If only John Candy's character in Planes, Trains and Automobiles had had one of these, instead of a Casio.
