Yes, discuss Sunday.  I think the value in the kit isn't the 
transmitters, it's in the actual fabric electrodes.  If they are as 
simple as I am thinking, we could easy duplicate them, and they could 
totally work for the pulse choker project (and probably many others - I 
wonder if they would work as display in addition to as sensors?).  I am 
willing to go in for a share of the kit as well.

The thing I am most curious about is how they got around the need for 
the gel that is in the Red Dot electrodes.  How do they make sure they 
have good electrical contact without it?
