Eric Teller‘s company, Body Media has tracked 132 years of human activity, including 44,533 minutes of jogging and 6,250 minutes of Ping-Pong through it’s armband monitor. The company has sold 7,500 armband monitors which wirelessly record physiological data to be analyzed by 1,300 algorithms that figure out what that body is doing. Within a year, Teller will have ten times the current data, enough to write intelligent programs that may predict when someone will suffer a cold, epileptic fit or heart attack. [video]
