It's easy to see 3D printers and ultra-HD TVs growing in popularity just from the number of products currently on the market.

Rob, I am currently living it.  Actually, my wife is.  He friend's husband has a running shoe store.  We were all out together recently and I was the only one who was not waring a watch like device that tracked their physical activity.  It was wierd.

I also noticed that Freescale has a Cloud Connect product for the smallest ARM microcontroller, the M0+.  With this, assuming you have connectivity, your device can connect to the cloud and report data. 

This train is rolling and it is rolling fast.

The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Dr. Kiyoshi Mabuchi and his team members for their work measuring the slipperiness of banana peels. Turns out they're slipperier with the yellow side up.
Many scientists have been working battery-free ways to power wearable electronics that can replace bulky battery packs, particularly through the use of energy-harvesting materials. Now a team of researchers in China have upped the game by developing a lightweight and flexible solar cell that can be woven into two-way energy-harvesting fabric.
Researchers in Canada have developed a chin strap that harvests energy from chewing and can potentially power a digital earplug that can provide both protection and communication capabilities.
