Comcast is working on an in-home device to monitor people's health, with the intention of rolling it out next year, CNBC reports.

How it works: The device would use ambient sensors to track people's basic health metrics, like whether they're making more trips to the bathroom or staying in bed longer than usual. Tools are also being built to detect falls.

Comcast Corporation has agreed to sell its 33% stake in Hulu to the Walt Disney Company in five years, the companies announced Tuesday ahead of Disney's "UpFront" presentation to advertising executives in New York.
