Technology To Determine When You Are Thirsty (??!!)


The device works by giving advice based on real-time data gathered by the bottle, which is transmitted wirelessly to a smartphone application.

Intelligent sensors in the i-dration bottle can be used to monitor the external temperature, drinking frequency and quantity, and this data is then sent via Bluetooth to its user’s smartphone.

The phone’s inbuilt accelerometer and gyroscope can measure exercise levels, and by ‘fusing’ the data from a heart rate chest-band and information pre-entered using the smartphone interface (such as height, age and weight), the application can perform an assessment of a user’s hydration levels.

The i-dration bottle then responds accordingly by flashing a blue light if the athlete needs to drink more.



So our future versions are going to be so stupid, that they will need sensors to tell them that they are thirsty!!

There seems to be a strong belief that the next generation is going to be super dumb. Personally, I believe the present generation HAS ALREADY crossed the ‘super dumb’ mile marker and are hopefully heading towards extinction.

How else would one explain that someone would not only come up but also fund such a pointless concept?!

Kill me…. kill me NOW!
