At the Body Computing conference we explore ways to expand the ability of technology to deliver information to consumers and get better outcomes. Can you put entertainment in? With the Internet, the draw is entertainment, and that can be very motivating. So the Beating Heart is totally for your kid to play with. You stick a patch that looks like this cool glowing heart on your chest, and it communicates the heart rate to the phone. It gives kids insight into what the heart rate is. They can send a photo of the latest teen idol and see what effect it has on their friend's heart rate. We will have increasing capability of monitoring ourselves this way.
