Place­bofied-Self is a se­ries of hacked prod­ucts which cause a placebo ef­fect in its users.
By ma­nip­u­lat­ing re­sults of dif­fer­ent track­ing de­vices (such as a scale, a skip­ping rope or a run­ning app) the user will ei­ther be con­tented or pushed to achieve bet­ter re­sults.

Placebo:
"a ben­e­fi­cial ef­fect, pro­duced by a placebo drug or treat­ment, that can­not be at­trib­uted to the prop­er­ties of the placebo it­self, and must there­fore be due to the pa­tient’s be­lief in that treat­ment."

The con­troller wire­lessly syncs the placebo value with your cloud data­base us­ing your home Wi-Fi net­work, so that all other de­vices eas­ily & au­to­mat­i­cally re­ceive the placebo value which will then be added to or sub­stracted from the orig­i­nal value.
