Smartwatches given out at Lords

Smartwatches given out at Lords
When we talk about wearable technology being used in elite sport, it’s almost always in a positive light. Advancements in that sphere have proved an invaluable modern tool for coaches and athletes alike, from feedback on performance, to monitoring of physiological parameters in order to keep a check on an athlete’s physical condition. A startup has even come up with a head-up display (HUD), to go inside a swimmers goggles.

Automated sealant dispensing proves a winner for golf

Automated sealant dispensing proves a winner for golf
Based in Edinburgh, Shot Scope Technologies designs and manufactures innovative wearable technology which helps both professional and amateur golfers to improve their game. A keen golfer with a background in electronics design, CEO David Hunter set up the company in 2014 to develop the golf wearable, which collects and analyses over 100 key statistics from each round played, identifying shots, club used and GPS information. The data can then be easily uploaded to any smartphone or tablet (via an app) or computer.

Flexible TVs and high performance wearables one step closer

Flexible TVs and high performance wearables one step closer
Flexible televisions, tablets and phones as well as ‘truly wearable’ smart tech are a step closer thanks to a nanoscale transistor created by researchers at The University of Manchester and Shandong University in China. The international team has developed an ultrafast, nanoscale transistor – known as a thin film transistor, or TFT, - made out of an oxide semiconductor. The TFT is the first oxide-semiconductor based transistor that is capable of operating at a benchmark speed of 1GHz.

'4D goggles’ allow wearers to be ‘touched’

'4D goggles’ allow wearers to be ‘touched’
A team of researchers at UC San Diego and San Diego State University has developed a pair of '4D goggles' that allows wearers to be physically 'touched' by a movie when they see a looming object on the screen, such as an approaching spacecraft. The device was developed based on a study conducted by the neuroscientists to map brain areas that integrate the sight and touch of a looming object and aid in their understanding of the perceptual and neural mechanisms of multisensory integration.

One to watch for manufacturers of smart wearables

One to watch for manufacturers of smart wearables
After the lasting successes of Smartphones and Smart TV’s, wearable technology has emerged as the next big player in the technology field. The 'quantified self' ideology (logging a person’s life to bring objectivity to areas normally clouded by feelings and impressions) is beginning to catch on in Europe, and German industry association Bitkom forecasts wearable revenues to climb to as much as 8.8 billion euros in 2018.
