An IP Address For Your Heart

New Scientist: Body organs can send status updates to your cellphone: wireless body area network (BAN). Dubbed the Human++ BAN platform ..... The next step will be to use an ultra-low-power radio transmitter, still in development at IMEC, to improve the stamina and portability of the sensors. .... "telehealth" monitoring like this

This totally chimes in with my thought expressed at this blog a few times that most tweets in the future will not emanate from human fingers. Looks like some of them will emanate from the heart.
