Solar-Powered, Health-Monitoring Clothing

solarjacketWhat now?  Well, Taiwan is finally putting it's massive electronics manufacturing base to work for itself.  They're creating a jacket, presumably, that will have solar panels integrated into it.  The solar panels will power some various health-monitoring devices (body heat, heart rate, blood pressure, and an RFID emitter that will beam the information to the health provider.

Freakin' weird.  From Infoworld: "A system could be designed that's powerful enough to run a laptop computer, but it would take a lot more solar panels -- and therefore a very big jacket, said Chang Cheng-tung, deputy chief of system integration at the institute."  Apparently we could see these 'e-health' jackets within a couple of years.  I like the idea, I just probably won't like the jacket.

I am not sure if this will ever pass the concept stage. As a headline grabbing piece of eco-fashion, maybe, otherwise...

Given medical trust issues, RFID interference(no fighting Physics here) issues, data interception and online pharmacy levitra hijacking issues, and awhole host of other technological hurdles, etc I doubt this is more than wishful thinking.
