What no one seems to have mentioned was that the Health Insurance industry is truly going to use the information from this technology to deny coverage or increase premiums.
It'd be great, though, if when they analyze the data, they also express potential for 'good' human traits, like an aptitude for jolliness or for deft fingers.
