"Personally, my inner perfectionist and health-nut finds the idea of the 
optimized self particularly appealing. Books like Tim Ferris's /Four 
Hour Body <http://www.fourhourbody.com/>/ show that personal improvement 
is part of the new geek agenda. It has suddenly become quite cool and 
fashionable to apply the latest science to our bodies in order to get 
the best results possible."

As an example of the kinds of things that are shortly to be possible, 
check out this awesome video about clothing that measures EMG signals 
for all the major muscles that it's in contact with, and how this can 
really bring meaningful data to bear on training problems for serious 
athletes.  How long till this comes down to consumer level?
