Well, it looks like the same thing is beginning to happen in certain sectors of wearable tech. Introducing the Movo Wave, a stripped-down fitness tracker...

If there’s anything the human body has been severely lacking is a useable touchscreen right there on our person. However, until cyborg technology grows by a few leaps and bounds, the chances of that happening are slight. There are other, less invasive, ways to get this kind of functionality, however. Look at this new bracelet which projects a bona-fide touchscreen right on your arm. It’s like being in a science fiction movie! The appropriately named Cicret is a, well, circlet that wraps around your wrist. To the external observer it...

Fitness trackers seem to focus exclusively on horizontal motion, without any idea just how vertical you can get. This tracker, however, can truly tell how high you can go. It’s sort of like an anti-limbo. The appropriately named VERT...
