The Ripxx Personal Measurement Device might seem like some sort of locator device, but it is actually a fitness tool that will fit the palm of your hand comfortably, where this built-in GPS tracker will pump out ten tracking signals every second, merging such information with data gathered from three accelerometers and gyroscopes in order to keep track of your location, orientation, speed, vertical drop, rolls, spins and turns – practically any movement that you make. When finished, you can always plot those points onto a map for future review, and word has it that the U.S. Olympic team is already using a prototype to train for the 2010 winter games. As for us ordinary folk, we can only pick one of these from mid-December onwards for $329.
