Apparently the underwear company Wacoal will use these in franchise stores to grab women's measurements, then use IBM Watson to recommend specific clothing sizes/lines.

Enabling Covert Body Area Network using Electro-Quasistatic Human Body Communication | Scientific Reports
Interesting body area network concept, but the range limits for an adversary depend a lot more on noise floor and antenna quality. Though I suppose this making it hard enough that someone normally needs to touch you to connect may be enough of a security hurdle...

Preorder Snap Flying Camera from Vantage Robotics
Interesting structural concept, using magnets to secure the rotor cages as a subassembly that can safely break apart during a crash landing, but the weight of the permenet magnets might be troublesome...

Apparently Toucan birds have a highly mechanically optimized beak. Very lightweight, with a hollow structure where there are no stresses, and elsewhere a bone fiber/membrane foam enclosed by an outer keratin tile sheet exterior, creating a natural biocomposite foam sandwich material in their beaks. Still doesn't explain fully why the beaks are so large, especially for a fruit eater. There was other research into beak properties by using IR camera studies, and it appears the beak is also used as a high performance controllable blood heat radiator to dump metabolic heat. They do interesting tricks like doing a burst of heat dumping just prior to going to sleep to slow down metabolic processes quicker.

Seems like a service to make 3D figurines of you, after spending 15 minutes getting your body scanned by some lady with a hand laser scanner. Seems they use a pretty high quality/resolution 3D printer to fab the figurines. The 10cm small size would be perfect for wedding cakes...

Perpetual motion: A piezoelectric pacemaker that is powered by your heartbeat | ExtremeTech
Wow, that's actually pretty smart, if the local energy generation and storage for the periodic stimulus firing is sufficient and it isn't a large device to stuff into someones chest. Also much simpler and potentially more failsafe than say a blood sugar powered fuel cell.

RISR – Take the Step to a Better You
Interesting device for assisting in interpersonal interactions. The vest basically has vibration motors at key points on the body to give cues about what postures/gestures/orientations you should be taking. It also seems to have an IR camera located near the collar bone junction just below your neck for scanning the orientation and reactions of people facing you. Since it works with a social interaction calculation engine on your phone, I guess what this means is the device is some sort of bluetooth composite device, with the IR video transmitted to the phone for analysis of body orientation and facial expressions, then feeding back to the vest motor commands to give you gesture/posture cues.

WVIL concept: Digital SLR meets mobile phone, with an ingenious twist
The basic concept would be amenable as a oversized iPhone case that offloads to the iPhone via wifi, much like an Eye-Fi, perhaps using bluetooth camera profiles to transmit the live viewfinder?
