    Nice video. Eric Topol was certainly the right person to tell us about wereables for this time. Also, I laughed at 1:49 when she caughed using the mask upside down

    Not enough Joanna Stern in this vid! I don't care if she's a rugmuncher, she's ridiculously funny. Thusly, she is more than welcome to my groupie-love!

    She will not want it — but, still — I'm making it available.
