Check this out. A t-shirt that monitors the wearer's sleep patterns. The Somnus Sleep Shirt has embedded sensors that measure breathing as the person moves around in bed. It comes with the SleepLogger, a key-sized device that tucks into a pocket on the sleep shirt and keeps the sensors powered. The Sleep Shirt can track data for five nights.

Not bad for something that has no tubes, wires or patches. The shirt is still in the testing phase, but you can learn more about it at www.nyxdevices.com

Now, if they could just make one to track overnight blood sugars.
