I love this Theresa this week no more games -- -- look at it technology that sorted and and in its infancy but super cool and holds a lot of promise send.
It's sort of but it's not exactly adult size under is that justice claims to love those -- -- -- -- -- from his -- you were -- -- Upload other days this -- the day -- woman.
I Wonder Woman didn't have enough for girls actually at a nothing in this that is there's been this week and I always good stuff that's happened.
Another awaiting -- panic will go under you but an account more -- -- technically called is aware and I forget sense physiological sensing systems so.
That's kind of -- jargon for.
What they want as -- garment that it's little Wear and forget to actually Wear it because current generation's right -- -- -- -- Rather uncomfortable awkward arm bands -- -- stands and that the goal -- to get the soldiers actually read them why we want them to Wear them.
Because it can divide -- got a sensor sweep embed it straight in the fabric itself.
So what the -- he will do harvest vital help speed up.
And he can really to a -- out there in the field -- -- -- combat accumulated back -- headquarters just lots -- -- -- purposes for this but the cool thing -- you want to become -- that -- -- where it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know all too often it's not being warned because it's just.
Well I can't hardly places where our men and women -- deploy that are have extreme temperatures and that's -- I think it rewritten very very cold.
-- but when you're -- 128 degrees and Riyadh wherever the heck he might be.
Wearing something like body armor it's from a.
Our sense of if you -- that exactly precisely the sort of data that -- are not Riyadh Ramani.
Any any -- -- regions are operating in can get super hot especially in seminary piled up and body armor are carrying on -- -- here and doing a live exertion.
Not create conditions for soldiers -- operating in and that's trip takes us forward to another -- application for this would be training.
So for the leaders to give -- a good sense of what the physical -- genuine physical limitations are there soldiers.
From the soldier's perspective it gives them a sense that it is data that will be sent back -- in the sense of actual physical limitations and proceed fiscal limitations because clearly a key point in training sophisticated special operators is pushing passes perceived sense of physical limits and asking them to push past and really explore just how far they can go.
Permission selections is this will be great to a meeting will never replace good leadership clearly competent -- -- collection.
The conditions are very tough as he said and sometimes you you actually need your most is -- -- the press physically fit in one specific -- -- couples disagrees.
For -- so with this sort of data yet it's costing you read you through this uncertain undergarments -- would Wear.
You know they'll have a really good sense of you know who was best place for that mission and who will be able to perform faster to just try I don't need to say how important that would be of course this is -- -- -- -- important.
You know and in terms of wider applications.
There's lots of potential there to of course for just professional athletes would be great feedback system to monitor how -- preening in their training.
I'm sure they love a -- like this telemedicine civilian medical care and that there's lots of great applications are.
Even him at one of the ones I would love to see this used for is Boston has -- these where the soldiers or first responders -- He cases big sort of senior and seats that make them look like -- Michelin men you know it.
It's a much like it's really -- you can't see what's going on and as you mentioned overheating that's that's always a risk for example dehydration I think.
-- -- -- You know like that they have sent me GAAP and you and -- it was hot ego I think it was Jeremy Renner who was like dress didn't.
Gear that looked very comfortable and in what he was having to do was concentrate we got beads of sweat dripping down on it.
-- I'm glad you raised that because that cognitive reading this thing is as a huge deal and of fatigue are served factors that can be predicted fifty cities kind of conflict other than -- -- -- do you think predict when a date as soldiers from entering that these were -- -- Well -- could be a medic in the field and that's -- great application can imagining right now we triage you just have to go for each guy.
You know you just have to run this guy and help them again but if you have the standoff ability raise a hand held it's telling you.
The vital signs of what's going on with soldiers refused to concede that -- like him he might be putting his life at risk for someone -- RD sadly lost.
We can better use so we're sort of -- -- I and -- wanna be too hard it about it.
