TapTap: a wristband that creates a private world for lovebirds

We know most wearables by now. There are activity trackers, smartwatches, wristbands that provide notifications, you name it. This makes it pretty difficult to come up with something new.

GlassFit puts the fun and excitement back in running using augmented reality

The apps that are currently available for Google Glass are a lot of fun, but not really very useful.

The GlassFit app lets you compete against yourself when jogging or cycling. […]

The TellSpec scanner analyzes all the nutrients in your food within seconds

An allergy to certain food types is always a problem. Does the food contain gluten? Have nuts been processed into this or that product?

Techno textile: smart T-shirts and socks are the harbinger of the next-generation wearables

Gadgets like the Fitbit and Fuelband are great fun, and your smartwatch or cool glasses will also make you look like a highly sophisticated techno-fan. However, the next generation of wearable technology really lives up to the monicker of “wearables”: smart T-shirts and socks stuffed full of sensors. Now that the market for activity trackers […]
