Fujitsu Energy Monitoring Power Strip

Posted in Power Strips by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Fujitsu has an interesting power strip for those who give a hoot about their electricity usage. It measures the electrical energy used in each outlet in real time, to help figure out how much electricity is being used in an office.

This data is combined with a scheduler to let you know how much energy is consumed even in the absence of the user. Each outlet has a contactless power sensor that can measure up to 2,000W. The data is transmitted over the network via a transmitter in a USB port on the side of the power strip.

Philips underwear: Blood pressure monitoring system

Philips underwear: Blood pressure monitoring system
Personally, there’s only one piece of hardware I want riding down below, but unfortunately hardware in your undies may become the norm one day. All I ask is that they leave room for the main package I’m hauling and that they’re comfortable. For some unknown reason, Philips is looking to create a pair that monitors your blood pressure.

A recent patent application from the firm shows off a “wearable” system, but they do point out that “it is particularly suitable for implementation in a continuously wearable undergarment with integrated measuring sensors or electrodes, so as to be directly in contact with the subject’s skin.” You know, I’m not too sure about all of this. I mean, don’t outfit our drawers with something that’s going to stunt our growth. (Insert George Costanza “shrinkage” joke here)
