ReachMedia bracelet

Imagine the ability to do an automatic froogle price comparison on that digital camera you are lustfully fingering at the shop. To this end, MIT researchers propose a system dubbed ReachMedia which includes a ReachBand (read: bracelet) with accelerometer and RFID reader to respond to hand gestures and detect the tagged object you are holding. An Internet-connected cellphone responds with an alert which indicates that information is available and then provides that information audibly. A flick of the hand would then signal a request for more information. Yes, mongers of doom, this could work for humans too.
