CES2020 stick-up, highway robbery, case of grand larceny: Core meditation trainer

Pat yourself on the back if you get through all 3 minutes and 55 seconds.

The 25 best products at CES 2020. (Time, 1/9/2020)
You'll need to shell out 169 simoleons for this marvel.  Meditating is a tough habit to build, and even more difficult practice to maintain. If you need an extra hand, or just a little tap on the shoulder to get you back into the zone, look at Core. The handheld meditation trainer uses tech like vibration and biofeedback, along with an app that offers both metrics on your health and and on-demand meditation classes, to help you focus on relaxation, breathing techniques, or mindfulness.

According to Merriam-Webster, the first known use of simoleons occurred in 1881.  

Other coinages from the same year include:
  1. big daddy
  2. close call
  3. corker
  4. dollar sign
  5. la-di-da
  6. too-too
  7. unarguable
  8. YMCA

"Stick-Up", Honey Cone's follow-up to their #1 "Want Ads", debuted at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending August 7, 1971.  It spent 12 weeks on the chart, peaking at #11 for 2 weeks.
