“The smartest minds of our generation shouldn’t be working on getting us more addicted to Facebook or Twitter; they should be working on helping us get–and stay–healthy,” MassiveHealth cofounder Aza Raskin told Fast Company back in October.

Jawbone recently re-released the Up in November, after 3 million hours of user testing. (The first version of the wristband, which debuted in 2011, was pulled from store shelves after a month.)
