    Potentially Interesting New Tech for The Self-Aware Nerd: Jawbone's "Up"


    If you are a tech-nerd like us, but also try to stay self-aware enough to be health-conscious, then this new tech coming from the company Jawbone, might interest you. Jawbone normally makes Bluetooth headsets and speakers, but this new device they are working on, is a bracelet called "Up", and it's designed to track many aspects of your life patterns, and sync up with your iOS or Android device. It will basically monitor your movements, sleeping patterns and eating habits, and will help you determine which choices & habits make you feel good or bad. They are still working on the software aspects of the device, and it sounds rather "magical" at the moment, but if they can pull it off, this could be a very intriguing product. What do you guys think?

    The tip for this device comes courtesy of JohnDroid!

    magic bracelet

    I think that if it doesn't give me +5 armour class or reduce my THACO there is no way I'd pay more than $10 for that.



    Seriously.

    Something about this device seems a bit creepy. Almost like a dog collar with "big brother" holding the leash, or an ankle bracelet tracker. O_o

    The fitbit has a display that shows you how many steps / mile you've walked
    It automatically uploads wirelessly to your PC and sends the data automatically to their website where it does all kinds of graphing and analysis.
    It also has a free android app where you can check your data and add other info.
    But you are right. It does not integrate with the android.

    Personally I'm waiting for combat Oakley sunglasses. That are not only bullet proof but are your display with augmented reality and quantum security.

    Oh I can see many good workout uses for this. It needs to very lightweight and waterproof and let me tell ya, I'll buy one tomorrow for tracking my tri workouts.

    I heard that it will be powered by unicorn blood.
