InteraXon - Thought-controlled computing - Interaxon
Makes of the Muse, a brainwave sensor bluetooth headband that works with a smartphone. Currently, it is just sending the brainwave sensor data to the phone, which processes it to detect certain states. Eventually, they want to move into brainwave analysis sufficient to allow "mind controlled" smartphones via the headband. Not a licensee of NueroSky...

Misfit Shine: an elegant, wireless activity tracker | Indiegogo
I really want to know the trick they use to sync with an iPhone. It's wireless, and works in airplane mode, so no RF. Which basically comes down to some sort of buzzer transducer trick using audio encoding, or some sort of trick involving the capacitive screen of the phone itself interacting with the tracker.

Kinda creepy privacy invasion here, since kids aren't really given an opportunity to not consent to medical and activity monitoring. Ostensibly used to combat childhood obesity by monitoring overall physical activity and length of moderate as well as vigorous physical activity (with goal monitoring and visual feedback on exercise goals), and I think a step counter. But like all privacy invasions, it is the slippery slope of indoctrination to monitoring that is the problem here, as well as the classic "Think of the Children" excuse.

Official Gmail Blog: Detecting suspicious account activity
I wonder why they stopped at general region? If they have a subscription to the MaxMind geoIP database, they can get some pretty accurate information in theory. Offer a drilldown link to see estimated location, with a note that the exact location is as accurate as the database (which could be pretty off if it is showing an ISP's corp HQ address). Maybe use some javascript feelers to try to detect reflector proxy usage when someone is trying to mask their IP/location (custom DNS queries/access, since DNS commonly leaks?)
