gobandit GPS HD3D GPS Action Camcorder
The gobandit GPS HD camcorder sets a new standard in high-definition action sports video cameras. It combines the latest in video technology with integrated 3D GPS into a compact easy-to-use device and comes with a variety of mounting brackets to quickly connect the camera to helmets, sports gear or any other piece of equipment.
While standard GPS calculates speed and distance on a horizontal plane - which is perfect for biking along a highway or running along a path, but not sufficient for capturing extreme sports -, gobandit GPS technology calculates speed and distance in three dimensions, ensuring every heart-thumping minute of action is seized.
The gobandit video editing software allows users to customize their footage and overlay information such as location, altitude and speed right on the video. The finished clips can directly be uploaded to social networking sites or to the gobandit.com website.

Biotronik CardioMessenger II-SHome Monitoring System for implanted Pacemakers
The CardioMessenger II-S offers a discreet and comfortable way of home monitoring for patients carrying an implanted pacemaker with telemetry function. The system enables an early detection of any irregularities, which has a reassuring effect on the patient and allows him to reduce the visits to the doctor's to the minimum required.
During the day, the patient's implant collects trend and event data which at night is transferred automatically to the CardioMessenger placed on the bedside table. The CardioMessenger forwards the received data via GPRS or a cable modem to the BIOTRONIK Service Center, where it is evaluated by the treating physician on a protected website. If the physician deems necessary, he can invite the patient to contact him, causing lamp 1 on the device to flash yellow. An insertion slide-in on the left side of the device bears a description card with a concise explanation of the basic lamp functions. On the back of the card, the patient can note the name and address of the treating physician.
