I do not have knowledge on the topic—I’m just interested, knowing that…
It’s fair to say our species is connected, our phones connect and track us. We’re the only known species that can boast that. Why stop there?

A phone. Basically.
What would you plugin? Heart-beat monitor?
What would the effect be on research, environment, extinction, tourism, entertainment, the list goes on.
But, what if? (don’t forget the negatives)
