Connected Chucks: Wired sneakers help Dot’ kids stay fit

A new state reports says what the Globe told us a few years back — patients pay a premium as some hospitals.

So, at least Partner’s is spreading a little of that cash around.  This  program encourages kids to be active  by installing chips in their sneakers. The chips send datae of a “Step Meter”  which then sends the kids messages that say things — Turn off that )*(&^%4 video games… you only walked ten feet today.

Not really. “The Step Meter contains milestones, such as “you’ve walked the Boston Marathon”, or “number of average steps taking in a soccer game”.  More here and in the video below.
