Newish product to hit the market- the Sensum. Heard a fascinating talk today by Kieran Daly from Ireland's Shimmer Research at the 3rd Asia Pacific Symposium on Nanobionics at the University of Wollongong.

Shimmer is a small wireless sensor platform that can record and transmit physiological and kinematic data in real-time. Designed as a wearable sensor, Shimmer incorporates wireless ECG, EMG, GSR, Accelerometer, Gyro, Mag, GPS, Tilt and Vibration sensors. Shimmer is an extremely extensible platform that enables researchers and industry to be at the leading edge of sensing technology.
