Here's one little gizmo I won't be buying
The HappyHR (I kid you not) continuously calculates the amount of calories you burn. Even, um, when you're asleep.
"Stay fit and be happy" is the slogan dreamed up by the Georgia Tech students who are building this gadget. I think they've got the wrong slogan there. How about "Think you're obsessive about eating now? Wait till you wear one of these babies."
I can already imagine the new eating disorder that will grow out of this. Calorexia, anyone?
