Cool Shit: The Fitbit
The Fitbit is a tiny wireless tracker that you clip onto your clothing to track your daily movements including steps, miles, calories burnt, and more that wirelessly syncs with the Fitbit website, letting you keep track of all your activities. It’s like Nike+iPod for your life.
The Fitbit Tracker contains a motion sensor like the ones found in the Nintendo Wii. The Tracker senses your motion in three dimensions and converts this into useful information about your daily activities. The Tracker measures the intensity and duration of your physical activities, calories burned, steps taken, distance traveled, how long it took you to fall asleep, the number of times you woke up throughout the night and how long you were actually asleep vs just lying in bed.
Pretty Nifty IMHO, you can pick them up for $100 in Q1 2009 at Fitbit.com
