The Vikings-Saints game was so crazy, Apple Watches told fans they might be having heart attacks

Vikings Vs Saints

The ending to yesterday's Vikings and Saints game was beyond thrilling and nothing short of an emotional roller coaster. The last few minutes of the game alone saw multiple lead changes and an assortment of incredible plays from both teams. But of course, the most important play of the game came in the final few seconds. With the Vikings trailing by one and facing a third down and 10 from their own 39 yard line, quarterback Case Keenum aired the ball out to Stefon Diggs who -- thanks to a missed tackle from Saints safety Marcus Williams -- managed to run the ball in for a touchdown.

The stadium immediately erupted and, funny enough, many Vikings fans who happened to be wearing an Apple Watch swiftly received an alert indicating that their heart rate had abruptly increased to a dangerous level. The alert relayed the following message: "Apple Watch detected a heart rate that rose above 120 BPM while you appeared to be inactive during the 10-minute period..."

This smart fitness shirt turns your body into a gaming controller

E-Skin Smart Shirt

Can one's body be used to control a video game? The answer is yes, apparently. But the smart clothing Japanese startup Xenoma designs isn't going to inspire a new generation of blockbuster video games.

The E-Skin shirts have sensors that pick up the movements of your upper body, including arms and torso, and translate any movement into on-screen action. That sounds a bit silly, and you’ll look ridiculous trying to control a game via the smart shirt you’re wearing. But E-Skin tech, combined with the right kind of apps, could transform the way you exercise at home or outside.

L'Oreal UV Sense

I can’t blame you if you think you’ve already had enough winter and you’re looking forward to spring and summer. But even though you can’t wait to bathe in the sun, too much sun can still be quite bad for you.

Thankfully, there’s an app for that, and it works with both the iPhone and Android devices. What's even more interesting is that L’Oreal created it to work alongside its newest wearable, a device that doesn’t need a battery to tell you when the sun is bad for you. And the wearable in question is incredibly tiny — see if you can even spot it in the image above.
