Bluetooth-enabled accelerometer/pedometer that measures the

Up next, tantrum-a-cizing as the next exercise rage...

||My daughter threw such a fit once in the grocery store she
would have blown off the charts of your caloric meter. She
only did it once, and that was forever.
||You've left a lot of development work unaddressed - snaffle? Or something crueler?
||[Ray], step up, do the homework, and report back.
||As a small child when I threw a tantrum I'm surprised
near me survived. I was quite strong. I would end up
the floor with whatever appendage was near to it with
sufficient force to propel the rest of my body off of it. I
imagine I looked like a spinning top. On the other hand I
wasn't particularly heavy, so that involved less calories than
may seem. In any case I would like to know how much
it burned. Perhaps it can be deduced from the change in
body temperature over time, modified by the amount the
person is sweating? In fact I'm going to half-bake that right
||EDIT: No I'm not. Between the caloric cost of water vapor
in breath, the high caloric cost of evaporating water
against the amount of unevaporated water lost to dropped
sweat, and room temperature changes the formula comes
||Development work? None really needed. All this
encompasses is a name change from the Fitbit and an
adjustment from adult calorie counts to child-size.
