This is a great area for wireless connections and it has been ignored for too long. It is great to see that it is finally being utilized.

Sports and medical devices seem so different that they should be tracked in different industries. One is mission critical (life saving), regulated, and the other is a consumer recreational device like an iPod or DiskMan. I'd guess that the really exciting advances will in in monitoring, regulating (automatic insulin pumps), and prosthetic assistance devices (mobility, vision, hearing).

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
