This has to be one of the more bizarre gadgets we’ve seen lately. It’s a Japanese device called the Akiduki Pulse box that automatically posts your heart rate to Twitter.
The question here is what will happen if your Internet connection goes down and you stop updating that heart rate. Will people start wondering if you died…?
That gives a whole new meaning to the word “uptime”, not to mention all the analogies that are used in networks and network monitoring, such as “heartbeats”, “keep-alive”, and “time to live”. 🙂
