I am most interested in the oral device. Imagine one in every politician's mouth. We could attach a shock device with a remote and then everytime one of them get caught in a lie we could depress a button and POW end of lie. As a fund raiser they could sell/rent one to anyone attending a campaign rally. Just imagine the money they could raise with nary a lobbiest in on the action. In that way when the lie is told, the only one who will really suffer is the politico. Just maybe we would get real legislators as opposed to leeches who sell our country to the highest bidder while they slop at the trough.

"I still say that the Power Shorts are a great concept. To be able to recharge your smartphone with them is huge. I could really see this concept catching on."

Charles you meant about wifi charging mechanism or any thing else.

"The trend of wearable tech is in full swing, and it doesn't look to be slowing down any time soon. Google Glass, smart watches, and fitness trackers are probably the first things that come to mind, but there are many other products in the works that are just as, if not more, exciting."

Lauren, there is no doubt that more and more devices are becoming handy and to wearable model due to the advancement in technology. In one of the ubiquitous project, I had seen wearable smart health monitoring system having BP, Cholesterol, Diabetic and Heart beat monitoring system with connectivity to medical service peoples.

@Charles, a word of caution about the power shorts.  They're not going to look like that on you.

@ Jennifer,

Oh, no, I completely disagree with your negative opinion about the pajama idea.  It's wonderful.  Anything to replace that annoying one-on-one time with your children so you can play games on your smartphone or spend more time on Facebook is going to be a marvelous sociological leap forward.  And your kids get to spend more quality time away from you, too!  How can you possibly see any downside to that?

A lot of nifty technology went into these wearable gadgets.  Some day that technology may be usefull for developing things needed and wanted by the masses instead of specialty items.  It looks like some of this technology could be bought by Apple for inclusion in an iPhone. They're experts at incorporating the latest technology into widely used applications.

I saw that those of your from Boston called your transit pass a "Charlie Card" and I just about fell out of my chair.  That's hilarious.

ALthough I'm a left coaster, I sang the MTA song as my solo at a folk music festival a couple years back so I got it right away!

He's man who never returned!

Instabeat

The one that surprises me the most is Instabeat. A few years ago, you could buy a a heart monitor on a strap that would fit around your chest and measure your heartbeat. But even at that close proximity, there were measurement difficulties. To be able to measure your heartbeat through a pair of goggles is mind-boggling to me.

I'm curious about the Kapture wristband. What kind of information does it capture and save? Heart rates? I recently shopped for a heartrate monitor and found they had changed dramatically in the last five years.

The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Automation technology advances matched with expanded fracking and the growing urbanization of Asia, South America, and the Middle East, are fueling a boom in the automation industry.
