Underwear To Monitor Your Pulse

You just can't make this stuff up:
The underwear project, spearheaded by the nanoengineering professor, was funded by the U.S. military and its effectiveness will likely be tested on the battlefield.

"This specific project involves monitoring the injury of soldiers during battlefield surgery," Wang told Reuters. "The goal is to develop minimally invasive sensors that can locate, in the field, and identify the type of injury."

Ultimately, the waistband sensors will be able to direct the release of drugs to treat the wounded soldier.
I wonder what other creative uses our men in uniform will find for this?

I can hear it now: "It's not the size of the device, honey, it's the metronome that's in it!"
