Wearable technology, as it stands, is hampered by several technologies that haven’t quite caught up to their promise just yet. One of the most significant of these is power consumption. These devices use a lot of energy and, more than that, are hampered aesthetically by the breadth and width of today’s battery technology. This is a problem because the stuff we wear, particularly actual...

Video games and wearable technology go together like, uh, peanut butter and jelly or big dogs and little dogs. In short, they are bros forever. As such, some of the very first wearable technology concepts(that are still growing)emerged from gaming. The Power Glove and the Virtual Boy were both 1980s and early 1990s products that predicted Oculus Rift and gesture controlled devices. No matter how many...

We all some snazzy sci-fi conceits, or else we probably be either writing or reading a site like this. The idea that one day we’ll be able to exist fully in virtual reality, or in the body of a robot or some other out there sci-fi concepts are our bread and butter. One such concept, the idea of a computer being able to read our minds, is so close it is almost...

Wearable technology. It’s the name of the game and the game is the name. Wait what? What I meant to say is that the wearable technology industry is growing in leaps and bounds and the future is quite literally limitless. As any dystopian science fiction novel worth their weight in cyber salt will tell you, it won’t be long before we are all “jacked in” to the “mainframe”...

The notion of using electronic patches to deliver medication and other healthful goodies is nothing new. After all, some medicine can be absorbed via the skin so it only makes sense to create patch that take advantage of that fact. You know what else can be absorbed via the skin? Sweet, sweet tabs of LSD. Wait, why in the heck did I go on that tangent? It must be...

Have you ever wished that you hadn’t forgotten your charger, or your flash drive, or maybe even a cable or two? If you’re like most of us, that’s definitely a yes. That’s why John Mcroy designed and created the ATHENE Utility Bracelet, a cool new gadget that includes most of the things you might need for your phone. What is it? Well for starters, it’s a bracelet. It’s also an 8GB flash drive, a microMini USB transfer cable, and a charger in case your battery dies. You wear it on your wrist, so there’s...

Most of us tend to like spending time out in the sunshine. Whether it’s trips to the beach, long walks, or even a bicycle ride every day, we are exposed to the sun almost every day. Unfortunately, many of us either don’t wear sunscreen or don’t realize when we have to reapply it. The LUXES bracelet is a new bit of wearable tech that aims to help...

If you’ve ever wanted to be the life of the party (all the time), then there is a new gadget that might just catch your eye. GloSpex is a new set of high-tech glasses currently running an IndieGoGo campaign for funding and they are literally illuminated glasses. While these sound like they’d only be useful for party situations, they’re also useable...

Most of us have heard of EmoPulse, the company that brought us one of the coolest smart watches to date. But while they’ve certainly got a lot going for them in the field of wraparound screens and smartphones on your wrist, they’ve also got some other pretty cool gadgets up their sleeve. The NanoGlass is one such gadget, and quite cool by anyone’s...

While studies show that some 64% of American’s need some form of glasses, the world of smart glasses has left these people in an altogether unpleasant place. It is impossible to wear smart glasses with regular glasses, unless you happen to want to swap out for your contacts for the duration. One company though, has come up with a product that works for anyone who already has glasses (or sunglasses) because it simply clips onto the side of the glasses frame to turn any ordinary pair of spectacles into an HD video capable recording...
