“By equipping the clothing and bodies of users with a mesh of multiple sensors – known as “smart dust” – that report to an Android-powered phone, researchers are pioneering an open-source route to realizing the dream of always-on medical monitoring. Their work has already allowed them to measure how much test subjects exercise, how well their hearts are doing and how much air pollution they’re being exposed to.” – Christopher Mims, TechnologyReview

Now this is pretty cool! The researches say that the power of the Android platform in their research, it the fact that it’s built on open source. This allows them to innovate and create their software freely!

Long Live Droid!
