Heart rate measuring hat?

Connected products, wearable technology will be so big, we cannot overestimate the disruptive power it will have to so many industries (like the suitcase I posted and ordered a few minutes ago). It will be very interesting to see how the competition incumbents versus start-ups will play out, and wether fully integrated "ecosystem" solutions or, lego-like "best of breed" products that can be combined with anything will make the pace. Here we have a hat that reportedly uses aerospace technology used on fighter jet pilots to measure your heart rate and calorie burn. And they make a statement out of selling you basically the sensors in a hat - and you can decide which app should then take this data and use it to optimize your runs or activities.
