This is one of the coolest videos I’ve ever seen (no audio in there so don’t worry about checking your speakers):

Here’s an article that describes this. BTW, this past week, the NYT wrote an article about twitter as a rallying or gathering mechanism, and – most interesting to me – as a monitoring mechanism. There’s already a couple that had a baby kicking generate a twitter post that read: “I kicked Mommy at 08:52 PM on Fri, Jan 2!” Patients could hook up measurements like blood pressure or heart rate to twitter alert doctors of their status (remember that twitter accounts can also be private – you don’t have to be alerting the whole world).

    That’s absolutely amazing. I recently got myself a Twitter account, wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Still getting the hang of it, but I can see myself getting addicted. Plus the site looks lovely.

    Although at this point, all I can think about is how much I want one of those machines…
