Immediately after I picked up my access badge, I walked through the barely finished labyrinths that make up the hopes and dreams of some, and the no-expenses-spared standard-operating-procedure of the big guys. This event is only four days long, but the elaborate “booths” looked like permanent installments. Plaster and paint is fresh everywhere. Electricians busy trying to extend even further past the one-point-twenty-one-jiggawats needed, and that’s just for France’s showcase.
I’m in an special exhibit outside the eight halls of the mobile spectrum that is MWC2011, called “The Embedded Mobile House”. I just received my mission, too: Demonstrate the mHealth solutions of Zephyr’s BioHarness, namely remote vitals monitoring, by riding a stationary bike from 9-5 every day of MWC. Barcelona’s tap water is very unpalatable, so I’m going to need some big ol’ jugs of water and pray my padded shorts hold up.
I may not be able to write much until this congress is over as I have events to attend every night here on out. But I plan to attempt Tweeting about my demo, my Qualcomm partner neighbors and those of you visiting me at the Embedded Mobile House in MWC’s main Courtyard.
Please follow me on Twitter @RunningDigital, but especially follow @ZephyrAnywhere and @Qualcomm_Health for more details and instructions as we will be giving away the BioHarnesses I’m so excited about. No, not the sweat-soaked one I’m using, brand new ones. Again, follow all of us in this paragraph for the important details and your chance to win some remarkably innovative mHealth tech, which is all wrapped up in BioHarness.
Root for me to last all four days on the bike and good luck winning your own BioHarness!
