I would like to know more... like how does it use Bluetooth? what kind of profiles does it use? Maybe it will create profiles of it's own. Does wifi suck the battery out of it?  Does the Android phone need an app for it?  

And after all... is wearable electronics really going to work? isn't it a little uncomfortable after sometime of wearing it?
