Connected technology to wear
Since a few years we see more and more wearable technology for different situations of our day by day life. Most of the new tools work in the health care market and as well in multimedia, means with photo or video support.
The Wearable technology offers an interface for your smartphone or tablet. Most of the Wearables are connected via Bluetooth communication with your mobile device and use the internet connection and your personal data of your device for additional information.
It starts with tracking calories and counting your daily steps but the latest gadgets do much more like pictures and voice commands.
You may wear a device on your head like lenses, on your wirst like a watch, on your finger like a ring or anywhere else as you may wich.
But first, you have to decide:
Do you like to carry technology
on your finger, head, wrist
or somewhere else on your body?
If you like, here we are with wearable technology today?
Probably the most discussed product is the Google Glass and with all the pros and cons, my personal feeling is that this tool has big potential to change many of our life.
If you don’t want to wear some tech on your head, because you think you look like the Borgs from Startreck, the Pebble Watch might be a great gadget for you. This color e-paper smartwatch comes with up to 7 days of battery life and a new timeline interface that highlights what’s important in your day.
Some people say that this Kickstarter (crowdfunding) project Pebble might be the real Apple iWatch Killer, but judge yourself and wait until apple will release his watch. Today, already more 65.000 people got the new pebble watch at Kickstarter.
The Google Glass and the Pebble Watch are some positive examples,
The news about the Logbar’s Ring doesn’t sound so wonderful. Many people complain about this cool idea. All the activity tracker have more or less a positive feedback from all the Users.
There are other Rings like the Mota and the Smarty Ring or the FIN that claims it makes your Palm a Numeric Keypad and Gesture Interface. In 2015 we will see many of this products NEW or updated on the market. On the other hand, there is the Ring Clock, which is not so smart but just gives you the time.
So overall, wearables seems to have a great future, even if this is again a big Change in behaviour.
