"Nearly 8 of out 10 Americans are willing to pay up to $100 for a medical device that monitors their vital signs, according to an IBM survey that tracks trends in the use of mobile devices in healthcare. Fewer than 10% of respondents are paying out-of-pocket charges for such devices today, but more than one-third expect to do so within the next two years."

This is great. Trends in miniaturization of sensors, mobile connectivity, and accountable care are creating the right conditions for health sensors to boom. This article summarizes a survey done by IBM (disclaimer: my employer) with a whole slew of very interesting findings - a state of the market, so to speak.

Do you know anyone using mobile snsored devices to track health info for their health care provider?

"The U.S. Navy has enlisted some very tiny sailors to fuel their latest research vessel. Microorganisms are descending into the sea, enabling unmanned pods to gather data beneath the surface. Weeks later, (perhaps even years researchers say), the craft could emerge via power it had generated on board. No batteries required—just bacteria."

This is cool.

Freaky.

"We are putting together a workshop called FutureLabCamp in Boston in early 2010. The focus is building the future of science laboratories with open source hardware and software, low-cost and DIY instruments, cloud computing, and the internet of things. We’re bringing together hardware hackers, HCI wizards, standards builders, and forward-thinking researchers together for an amazingly productive weekend."

This device, portrayed as a harmless product of science, is obviously designed to introduce our children to witchcraft and sorcery.
