Wearable Technology 2016-2026 : Markets, players and 10-year forecasts LONDON, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wearable technology concerns any electronic products that are designed to be worn on the person. In this report, IDTechEx summarises three years of research, finding that the market will be worth over $30bn in 2016, and growing in three stages: 9% annually to over $40bn in 2018, but then accelerating to 23% through to over $100bn by 2023, before slowing to 10% to reach over $150bn by 2026. wearable technology One of the key things that differentiates mobile phones from any other device is their ability to deliver a constant stream of real time data coupled with the processing capability to help consumers make a wealth of decisions based on this information. Tablets — we're going to leave home without them, and the majority of connections are over Wi-Fi. Wearable technology collects real-time information and may have applications/display, but we aren't yet seeing devices with the same flexibilty as the phone. The highly anticipated Pebble may yet be the device, but for today, it is the phone. (My colleague Sarah Rotman Epps writes a lot on these devices — see the rest of her research for more information). With that fact established, my open question is, "Who is making my life better with this ability to process information near instantaneously to help me live a better, healthier life . . . or at least how I choose to define it?"

How Wearable Technology Can (And Will) Change Your Business In recent years, wearable technology has become a hot topic in the tech industry. With its tight relationship with the Internet of Things, many insiders have designated wearables for business as the next big thing. But while the most talked-about new wearable technologies—such as the Apple iWatch and Google Glass—are either not yet widely available, or are only just beginning to make their way into customers’ hands, there are many other wearable products that have already established themselves in the market. To many users, these new devices are often categorized as fun novelties and interesting gadgets, but others see them for what they really are: a game-changing influence with the potential to utterly disrupt the modern business world. As such, we've recently launched Salesforce Wear, a development platform that can be used for creating business apps for Android Wear, ARM, Fitbit, Pebble, Philips, and Samsung, as well as other devices.

The Reductive Seduction of Other People’s Problems – The Development Set – Medium The “reductive seduction” is not malicious, but it can be reckless. For two reasons. First, it’s dangerous for the people whose problems you’ve mistakenly diagnosed as easily solvable. There is real fallout when well-intentioned people attempt to solve problems without acknowledging the underlying complexity. There are so many examples. As David Bornstein wrote in The New York Times, over four decades of Westerners working on clean water has led to “billions of dollars worth of broken wells and pumps.

Wearable tech giving classroom insights Personal fitness trackers and smart devices that log our daily steps and monitor our heart rate have increased in popularity in recent years. This kind of portable, wearable technology is also being used by researchers in the classroom to gain insights into how the brain learns. Professor Ross Cunnington is a Chief Investigator at the Science of Learning Research Centre (SLRC) – an Australia-wide collaboration bringing together researchers from the fields of education, neuroscience and cognitive psychology. His study with fellow SLRC Chief Investigators Professor Robyn Gillies and Professor Annemaree Carroll into small group cooperative learning uses wearable technology to collect data in a classroom environment. ‘We’re trying to provide an evidence base for education practice based on what we know about how the brain learns,’ Cunnington tells Teacher.

Latest Wearable Technology Statistics and Trends The Rise of Wearable Technology In contemporary times, wearable technology is becoming a buzz word, but it dates back as far as 1200s with inventions that change the way we live and track life. Lets take a look at the journey so far. 2011 In 2011, an estimated 14 million wearable devices were shipped. Thync, Investing in the Future of Stress Relief Wearables Did you ever imagine that you will be able to own a wearable that will allow you to shift mental states in minutes? Well, with the mission to ‘unlimit people’, Isy Goldwasser and Dr. Jamie Tyler founded Thync in 2011. By 2015 they introduced us to a sleek neurosignaling device named Module, which was their first consumer wearable, developed over a 4 year period of clinical research by a team of neuroscientists and engineers. Now fast forward to 2016 and Thync is getting ready to launch its next product in 2017. Thync Relax, similar to The Module, delivers low energy wave forms to safely stimulate the nerves of your head, face and neck.
