HabitAware Makes Time’s List of Top 2018 Inventions

November 15, 2018

HabitAware, a Minneapolis-based tech startup developing a smart awareness tracker called Keen to stop behaviors like hair pulling, nail biting and skin picking, has been named on Time Magazine’s list of Best 2018 Inventions.

Time’s list includes 50 total devices in categories such as transportation, toys, sustainability and gadgets. HabitAware was highlighted in the health and wellness category along with six other companies.

Keen, HabitAware’s flagship product, helps users pick up on repetitive motions and vibrates when it catches them in the act. This kind of awareness-building is key to kicking compulsions for good. Keen retails for $149 and is on track to pass $1 million in sales this year, Time reports.
