RunKeeper, a maker of health and fitness tracking software, has made its Health Graph API available to the public after a closed beta with a small group of developers.
RunKeeper provides a variety of tracking devices from arm bands and sleep devices to the fitbit tracker. These devices gather health data and store it as part of the Health Graph. This in turn creates a wealth of data that is perfect for integration into other apps and data visualizations.
The growth of Internet-enabled devices will open up whole new worlds of applications and visualizations while also testing what RESTful APIs can actually handle as we continue to evolve towards the Internet of things.
