​How About A Business Card That Can Also Read Your Pulse?

​How About A Business Card That Can Also Read Your Pulse?
WTF

Business cards are designed to give people an idea of your profession and designation at a given company, along with the contact details and other information of course. But if you work at an innovative company like MobilECG, a standard business card just won't cut it.

The brains behind the company have come up with a business card that comes with a built-in ECG that can read your pulse within a few seconds. However, the company has made it abundantly clear that this is merely a toy and not a substitute to the real thing. But it's good fun to be able to have something like this in your wallet, especially if you work in the medical profession.

MobilECG mentions that this works on a tiny button cell (also known as watch battery) which can last up to 1 hour if it's being used continuously. The company however mentions that the battery is only used if both the thumbs are on the sensors, so if you keep the card as it is, you should be able to use it for a week or two at least.

MobilECG aims to make electrocardiograms accessible and affordable to all. They have come up with mobile units that serve this purpose. So keeping their principles in mind, this seems like an apt way to showcase their products to the world. If you want one of these business cards for yourself, the company lets you sign up for it from their dedicated page here. It is currently priced at $29, which roughly translates to Rs 1,950.
