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.
