Squeezing into OMsignal's smart shirt of the future Thanksgiving is a time to remember things to be grateful for, stuff yourself with turkey and watch MST3k re-runs. But what happens the following day, when you wake up with a meat hangover that could kill a horse? That's the moment you'll stumble online, looking for new ways to lose weight and find OMsignal's biometric smart shirt. The fashionable piece is a sports-style compression garment that monitors your breathing, heart rate and step count, so I know that as I write this, I'm taking 18 breaths a minute and my heart is beating 76 times every 60 seconds.
Brain-Linked Prosthetic Arm Wins FDA Approval As Our Bionic Future Looms DARPA’s initiative to build a prosthetic arm that’s fully controllable via a wearer’s mind has won approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (via Verge), a key green light that will let it edge closer to wide-scale production and distribution. The next step is to find someone to build the device, and then it can start helping amputees cope with the loss of their limbs. The so-called DEKA-arm uses tech similar to that employed by the MYO armband, detecting electrical impulses in the upper arm before the sever point and interpreting that info to translate it into a gesture. Unlike the MYO, however, this isn’t about turning a regular arm movement into an interface interaction on a computing device – instead, it translates directly to what the movement would’ve been in a natural human arm had the electrical impulse had room to run its course.

Ion: A Music Detecting Mood Light with Bluetooth Low Energy by lava ION's genesis began with our first Kickstarter project, Ember & Torch (Bluetooth Low Energy development boards) back in June of 2013. One of the demonstrations for Ember that we built was an app-controlled LED lamp. We demonstrated Ember, Torch, and the LED lamp at Social Media Day Detroit 2013. We quickly discovered that visitors were more interested in where they could purchase the lamp than Ember & Torch.
Correlated Magnetics Research Brings MaxField Polymagnets To A Wall Near You We first told you about Correlated Magnetics Research’s programmable magnets last year. The company’s patented technology allows them to flexibly control the magnetic field shape of the magnets they create. In essence, the company can program the north/south polarity of the magnets as though they are “printing” it on them. It allows for many different configurations and has many industrial applications. But what are the consumer uses for this kind of technology?
