Samsung поделилась взглядом на будущее носимой электроники и смартфонов. 10 июля 2013 в 9:33 Константин Ходаковский, 3dnews Недавно Samsung Electronics в лице её директора по стратегическому развитию Ена Сона (Young Sohn) на конференции MobileBeat показала новый концептуальный видеоролик, посвящённый взгляду компании на будущее персональной мобильной электроники.

Samsung поделилась взглядом на будущее носимой электроники и смартфонов

Современные смартфоны построены вокруг твёрдого стекла, покрывающего энергоёмкие дисплеи, а будущие мобильные устройства призывны стать легче, пластичнее, получат массу новых сенсоров и будут подчас носиться прямо на теле человека по аналогии с часами или очками. В видео был показан раскладывающийся экран (благодаря чему эффективная рабочая область существенно увеличивается), выполненный по новой технологии (субпиксели в нём могут менять цвет за счёт изменения своей толщины, что даёт значительную экономию энергии). Также в видеоролике был показан сенсор, наклеиваемый на руку и снимающий медицинские показания с помощью миниатюрных электромагнитных излучателей и антенн.

Wearable technology

The designs often incorporate practical functions and features, but may also have a purely critical or aesthetic agenda.[1] History[edit] Wearable technology is related to both the field of ubiquitous computing and the history and development of wearable computers. With ubiquitous computing, wearable technology share the vision of interweaving technology into the everyday life, of making technology pervasive and interaction friction less. Through the history and development of wearable computing, this vision has been both contrasted and affirmed. The calculator watch, introduced in the 1980s, was one original piece of widespread worn electronics. According to Forbes, 71% of 16-to-24 year olds want wearable tech.[9] Prototypes[edit] Festivals and shows[edit] Modern Technologies[edit] See also[edit]

Top Trends: Wearable Technology - datascience@berkeley

If you’re like millions of other Americans, you may have kicked off 2014 by dusting off your sneakers and heading to your local gym (only to find hundreds of other resolutioners in line ahead of you!). Losing weight is consistently one of the top new year’s resolutions made by Americans. But how to go about this admittedly lofty task? Some approach this with exercise, some with diet…why not try out data science for a change? One of the hottest trends in consumer data science currently is the idea of “wearable tech. . ” , products must meet two key criteria to be considered “wearable technology”: Test 1 – Wearable: being worn for an extended period of time, with the user experience significantly enhanced as a result. IHS further breaks the wearable technology market down into five applications and their related product categories: Chart from IHS whitepaper, “Wearable Technology – Market Assessment,” September 2013 For the fitness realm, popular activity trackers FitBit .

CES 2014: Predictions for Wearable Tech and Social Media Integration. Over the last several days, as many of you likely have, I’ve been keenly following updates from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

CES 2014: Predictions for Wearable Tech and Social Media Integration

For those who don’t know, it’s during CES that many new tech gadgets and innovations are revealed, essentially playing the role of a one-stop-shop for where we can get a glimpse of what the future of tech has in store. Of the many cool new electronic devices being shown off at this year’s show (that I’ve read about thus far anyway) – predictably – it looks as though wearable tech is one of the major trends being observed. Virtually every major electronics player is diving into the wearable tech ring, each with their own take on what they believe to be the future of this emerging segment. Pebble, one of the earlier players in wearable tech, and Kickstarter success story raising over $10 million, announced a new model that is very much a Pebble smart watch, but in a new premium form factor. 1. 2.

How Custom Silicon Could Jump-Start the Wearables Revolution. The Myo doesn’t look like much: a slender black armband just below the elbow.

How Custom Silicon Could Jump-Start the Wearables Revolution

But the intriguing inaugural product from Canadian startup Thalmic Labs stands to create a whole new way of interacting with our devices. By sensing electrical impulses in the muscles, the Myo can pick out a suite of simple gestures (a snap, a grasp to a fist, a hand wave to the left or right, and so on) and translate them into specific actions on screen. The first units started shipping to developers last week, with consumer devices expected by the middle of next year. If it works as advertised (Thalmic’s three young co-founders demo’d an early version of the device at TEDxToronto), the Myo could bring gesture control to just about any screen in our lives.
