    Naw, too primitive, too basic, too 'on/off'. If it's merely recording the [visual] moments which induce elevated heart rate then it could be anything or nothing. If you were bricklayer then a nicely formed wall might get you going, if you're a priest then any boys walking down the street, if you suffer from stress then probably anything.

    Now, if we're talking something along the lines of Strange Days... that might be cool.

    Thats just pointless and creepy.

    Note to MS: Stop wasting your money on crap like this and concentrate on making Windows faster and more secure.

    Reminds me of the exploding deadlock devices from the movie Deadlock with Rutger Hauer.

    So if you wear this Microsoft 'device' and you want to escape the Microsoft campus your head will explode!

    Then they'll put Windows Advantage Notification thingy on it, so everytime you look at a nice ass, you get a popup in the corner of your eye saying "Please grade this bottom [*][*][*][][]".

    This is kinda boring compared to some of the other entries on their website. Look at the Illusion PC, and the Napkin PC. I didn't think that they would have an actual case mod on there. :p

    I'd get one if it had a switch instead of being heart rate activated. many times I have had my heat "jump" when handling hardware (like almost dropping a new harddrive that cost me $170, or almost pushing over my chest of drawers that has both my monitors and a lot of other junk on it), not to mention that ever time I get low blood sugar (diabetic) my heart rate shoots up (not fussed on videos of myself shoveling sugary foods down my gob from the insane amounts of insulin I take).

    this could be useful as an unobtrusive cheap-ish video camera that you don't have to constantly hold onto, which could be useful for many things (including a 3am trip to my favorite abandoned mental hospital/small village)

    "Looking worryingly like an explosive collar from The Running Man"

    Did you mean like the devices the students wore in Battle Royale? Now that was a quality film
