The objective of the ZenVow Meditation resorts is to allow for the creation of a new sustainable alternative to the unsustainable economy we have today. The new reward system is based on the principal of rewarding scientifically proven healthy human activities in order to maximize the quality of human life, without paying the heavy price of the undesired externalities such as pollution, fauna and flora extinction, public health costs, among many others. The ZenVow Meditation resorts will be managed using permaculture techniques. Permaculture is an innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living as well as a practical method for developing ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere.
ZenVow users receiving rewards inside the resort will receive a special bonus, to be payed to the
resort in order to be used for extra expenses such as, maintenance costs, agricultural costs and
energy costs and so on. The ZenVow Sensor has two main characteristics, it is composed by a Respiratory Effort Sensor
and a body posture sensor. The sensors are capable of detecting expansion and contraction of the
chest/stomach and also detects the user’s posture using an inertial measurement unit. The user can
attach the strap in two different locations, on the chest or on the stomach. The sensor can connect
to any smartphone device via wireless Bluetooth link.
The ZenVow Sensor relays real-time biometric data from the user’s respiratory efforts as well as
the XYZ vectors back to the app, this data is then used to create interactive color and sound therapy
in order to generate a relaxed state of mind. The strap is one size fits all and very comfortable and
compact. The data from the sensor is used as one of several metrics to validate if the user
participated in a breathing, meditation or Yoga session in order to receive the ZenVow Coins as
rewards. The ZenVow Mobile App is a free cross platform application, running on Android and IOS. It is
designed for users to connect to the ZenVow Sensor and the ZenVow meditation pad. The app has
built in breathing, meditation and yoga sessions organized in classes.
