The same technology can be used to determine if someone is sitting in one place too long. The Sedentariness Reminder Function will tell people in a room that sitting in one place too long is not healthy. We're not sure how this reminder would be disseminated. Perhaps a notification is sent through an app that is offered with the light bulbs. That same app could automatically call an ambulance when the bulb detects that some one has fallen and they can't get up.
This might be the beginning of an HTC division that produces smart devices for the home. Or the company could decide to milk its newfound friendship with Google and have the bulb sold through Google's Nest line of smart appliances. The company did file for patent protection with the USPTO earlier this year.

That's not exactly life saving.

Falling down for millions reasons, hitting your head unconscious and bleeding to death while unconcious. Ye it could be life saving.

Interesting..but I'm more interested how HTC can save their own smartphone business.

this is much needed in bathrooms also .. seriously i've heard lots of death stories because someone slipped in the bathroom and fell on the ground for hours leading to his death, the nearest example i can think of is when i was in high school my friend's little brother slipped in the bathroom and no one heard or felt anything unusual because it was a two story villa and the boy spent maybe 2 hours lying on the ground till someone finally felt his absence, he was rushed to the hospital but unfortunately announced dead later, his life could have been saved if something like this was monitoring his movement ever since that incident i have been wondering why such a live saving solution didn't exist for this problem, lets not forget that tons of people live alone in their apartments which makes the matter even worse
