Why is CES unlike other events in the tech world? We all think about it, don’t we? Undoubtedly, there are still various marvellous, awesome and magnificent gadgets to be explored. Surely vibrant big screens of; LG’s new speakers are amazing, including levitate; drones will conquer the skies; robots will dominate the earth, and the VR will certainly be mind-blowing.
It must also be noted that 2017 might be the year when hardware technology will be an endangered species while software and information will become more functional. These advancements are certainly very important as well as ultra-fine.
Amazon Echo Dot was the top seller on Amazon.com in all the vacations. No need to stare at its screen. Not even your fingers are required to type or tap on it. It’s not wearable or rechargeable. It usually works in the same pattern as everything you already use. All you are supposed to do is talk to it. And invisibly it will become smarter and smarter about you as its software will improve and advance autonomously.
People, in general, think that 2017 is a bad year for wearables, but it’s a great year for wearables indeed. The interesting thing yet to be explored is that this big reveal is more invisible at this initial stage which many of us could not understand. Small sized chipsets ever made, signal-to-noise processing made even better have been explored. The man has entered an era of less visible wearables. NXP, Qualcomm, Intel, Samsung, and ValenCell are just a few companies that are taking the functionality built into mobile devices, smartwatches and activity trackers and putting them into clothing and accessories like belts, handbags, and fashion.
In the digital health field, the Qardio Core heart rate monitor is a fine chest-wrap EEG monitor that can notify your doctor of change. Vivalnk is a slender, wireless adhesive patch that contains enough smarts to monitor sleep, activity, stress, respiration and more. The company calls itself a wearable health platform, building applications atop its eSkin technology.
