More Technology For Better Living

From TIMESONLINE:

"The Bluetooth wireless technology that allows people to use a hands-free earpiece while making a mobile telephone call could soon alert the emergency services when someone has a heart attack, Ofcom predicts.

"The communications regulator said that sensors could be implanted into people at risk of heart attack or diabetic collapse that would allow doctors to monitor them remotely.

"If the “in-body network” recorded that the person had suddenly collapsed, it would send an alert, via a nearby base station at their home, to a surgery or hospital."

Other uses:

-Low blood sugar alert. Calls the nearest Godiva store and arranges delivery. Also contacts Dunkin' Donuts on request.
-Drowsing on the carpool line: sends message to Starbucks. Your latte will be ready in ten seconds.
-Brainwave fluctuations indicate host is losing her mind in the curtains sections at Kohl's: Martha Stewart will drop through roof via parachute. Saves the day.
-Capable of sending coded messages to other host organisms. Especially useful on soccer field. E.g. "Put my kid in now, Coach, I'm not standing out here in the cold for no damn reason."
