It seems this week is all about wearable technology making exercising and losing weight just the teensiest bit easier. That’s what technology is there for, after all, to make certain things easier. This newest device, however, might just jump the wearable shark. Just how wearable is it? Well, uh, it actually goes inside of you, quite literally on your stomach....

Losing weight isn’t exactly the easiest thing in the world. You have to exercise, or whatever passes for exercises in our world. Also, even harder, you have to do this thing called ‘eating less.’ This sounds easy on paper but, as you all know, staring down a fat burrito and exercising restraint is tougher than not eating an entire burrito in one...

Exercising can be a real drag. We all know that. We all suffer through that reality each and every time we decide to, you know, get healthy or whatever. One of the great things wearable technology has been able to do is provide a handful of easier ways to get out there and sweat, via the magic of fitness tracking and related techs. However, what about using the old...

“See you later, may I have the car keys please?” Every parent expects to hear this phrase before too long. Let’s be honest, however. Teenagers are awful, awful drivers. Adults aren’t even the best drivers but teenagers are the absolute worst. Whatever system we have in place to teach these ragamuffins how to conduct themselves behind the wheel...

Gesture control technology, as it currently stands, certainly had a good run. How many games of Wii Bowling did you play with your parents, for instance? However, the tech has always been limited due to the fact that not everyone does everything in the same way. If the hardware went looking for the Platonic ideal of a tennis racket swing, most people would obviously miss the mark. So, yeah, it left...

There seems to be two conflicting school of thoughts developing when it comes to virtual reality eyewear devices. There are the luxury brands, which seek to envelop consumers in the sleekest fake worlds money can by, usually by strapping them into some PC software. There are also the brands who accomplish something similar, although less magnificent, via magnifying...

If there’s one new technology that is starting to make waves, besides all that which is wearable, it has to be drones. These little personal helicopters are blowing up in a big way, allowing you to film beautiful vistas or just get your food delivered quicker. Heck, even Amazon has announced they will soon start testing drones out to conduct same-hour product deliveries. Yowza. It looks like...

Oculus and their Rift device is an astounding piece of technology, particularly if brand new developer’s kit is any indication. The only downside to VR eyewear devices, however, is their tendency to cause nausea to a subset of the population. With each passing iteration, of course, this subset shrinks, so maybe one day VR-induced puke-titude won’t even be a thing. For now, though, it is....

Everyone loves that one infomercial with the frazzled guy drowning in smartphones and other misc gadgets, as a chorus of voices chant “gadgets! gadgets! gadgets!” Oh wait. That infomercial doesn’t actually exist. Well, it should! Nowadays, we carry a whole boatload of gadgets with us at any given time. There’s the smartphone, the tablet, the...

The world currently has, or soon will have, enough smartwatches and smartbands to choke a smarter than average horse (Mr. Ed.) However, there isn’t so much in the way of smart other-kinds-of-jewelry. Sure, there are a few odds and ends here and then, a smart earring or two. But it certainly isn’t a genre of consumer item unto itself. That may be changing,...
