    Nike Sports have come up with a sleek motion tracking 
     wristband an iPhone app that measures and visualizes
     everyday physical activity. Providing users with a real time
     data on each step and calorie burned. RFID tags are so tiny
     that they fit in a label. According to the President of digital
     sport Stefan Olander. There are ways of embedding 
     technology in fibre, you can embed all kind of sensors in
     apparel. We are looking for a galvanic skin response, where
     you can measure sweat and derive a bunch of information
     that is really relevant to performance. We are looking at
     a heart rate, pressure sensors and solar power.
     Alongside the popular fuel brand, Nike has already 
     embedded sensors that track and display performance
     in a number of products from watches to running basket-
     ball shoes. 'There is no reason why every product we make
     isn't smart' said Olander
