The wearable device that monitors for fatigue

Last year I wrote about an interesting wearable technology developed by a startup called SmartSite.  The company, which is part of the Y Combinator stable, offers hardware that is connected to the cloud to help companies measure what hazardous substances employees are exposed to.
