If you’ve been paying attention to the world of wearable technology over the past couple of years, and since you are on this blog you probably have, you can’t help but notice the propensity of smart watches and smart bands. They usually offer similar functionality, tracking your vitals and workout routines. However, what if you don’t want to strap on something new in order to get...

Every big tech company out there has either announced or formally released their own take on the humble smartwatch. One glaring omission from this canon, however, is Bill Gates and his venerable Microsoft corporation. They’ve released video game devices, motion tracking units and more tablets than you can shake a motion controlled stick at. When are they going to come out with their very own...

It was only a matter of time before companies started releasing stuff ‘for the ladies.’ This isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it is downright cool. However, sometimes it can be a pandering, ridiculous mess. All of you gamers out there, remember this gem? It’s Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros finally starring in her own platform game. Her powers? Tears and emotions of...

Google has had this whole smartglasses thing on lockdown since day one. They were the first one out of the gate, after all. However, one must remember that although they left the gate first, no company has really and truly gotten out of said gate yet. That’s because none of these devices have gone to market. Sure, you can drop an obscene amount of money to get your hands on a Glass Explorer...

As a wise, wise woman once sang, ‘if you like it then you should have put a ring on it.’ Truer words have never been spoken. Unfortunately, those old-fashioned rings she spoke of feature not one ounce of technology. They are just made out of stupid ole gold and diamonds! Who needs those things?! No, what we need is cold, hard microchips et al. Thankfully, some companies are jumping on...

We’ve all been there. A few drinks turns into a few more and pretty soon you are kidnapped by a team of International organ thieves. You wake up a few days later in a dilapidated hotel room and a gaping wound on the lower left side of your chest. How in tarnation can we prevent such a tragedy? If only someone we cared about knew just how wasted we were and...

It used to be ‘Rolling Stones or Beatles?’ and ‘Blur or Oasis?’ It used to be ‘Coke or Pepsi?” and ‘paper or plastic?” The new society-defining question may just be ‘smartband or smartwatch?” Companies seem to be prepping both of them at a rapid clip and, sure, they tend to share a lot of the same features but that doesn’t keep people,...

Google Glass is a pretty cool device and is filled to the brim with potential. However, as it currently stands, it has one elephant-sized problem. The price is not right on this thing. Sure, the consumer model isn’t out yet, but if you want to get your hands on an Explorer edition model, you are gonna have to fork out a whopping $1,500. That’s the price of around 750 slices of pizza or...

If anyone were to come up with a list of the Holy Grails in the wearable technology world, you’d get answers as diverse as a helmet that recreates the Holodeck to a piece of fabric that tracks every single health concern a person might have. You know what they’d forget about, however? Laboratory grown penises! The humble penis is, sort of, wearable and...

As future forward as smartwatches and smartbands are, they have one major detriment they aren’t getting over anytime soon. The watch and armband are items you must additionally place on your person in order to get their benefits. In other words,  you weren’t really clamoring to wear a watch or armband before you found out about all of the cool features....

Clothing. We all put it on our bodies every single day, unless some of us happen to be nudists (no judgments here.) As a matter of fact, part one of the two-part ‘wearable technology’ happens to be the word, uh, wearable. So, yeah. We put lots of frills and frocks all over our bods. Our bods tend to get gross sometimes so, in tandem, said frocks get gross....
