    Hi all,

    We're students who just graduated from UPenn; we're building a wearable device that tracks if you're getting drowsy and helps you stay alert, and we're now on Kickstarter! It's great for driving or monotonous tasks at work. Check it out at this link and help support us to make Vigo a reality!­ Hope to see you all soon at one of the upcoming meetups
