Chill Panda aims to help children and their parents understand the physiological reaction to different feelings, and learn some tools to help with emotion regulation and stress-reduction. An initial heart rate is acquired through LED light pulse detection (no external device needed) prior to mood reporting and exercises. Exercises include breathing exercises and creative video games. A panda avatar guides users through the activities.
