Integrates a health/fitness sensor directly into music earbuds and headsets that gathers real time heart rate, calories burned, distance and aerobic capacity (VO2max) as consumers exercise, listen to music, and talk over the phone.

Good show !!
Valencell is commercializing this tech now. So while you listen to music with your favorite headphones, you also track your heart rate, distance, speed, and caloric burn. They also will have fitness training apps. Valencell just completed an NIH-funded program to generate clinically accurate calorie counts.
This is a fantastic idea!
What a great idea! I can't wait for it to be available for purchase.
What a fantastic concept!

Many of the cool programs and therapeutics proposed by other folks in the Institute for Emerging Issues can leverage bio-monitoring audio headsets towards public health.
