MP3 Player synchronizes to running rhythm using accelerometer & pulse monitor

Cool Device. JKonTheRun writes "At the gym MP3 players practically outnumber people. As useful as music is for motivation during a tough workout, nothing can kill your mood faster than a poorly chosen song. This BODiBEAT mp3 player uses an acceleration sensor and an ear clip pulse monitor to sense your workout pace and matches the song."
While I think it's a cool idea, 512MB is too small for me and the price is expected to be over $200 so I guess I'll continue using the workout playlists that I create using Beats Per Minute customized to my various workouts.
