Who needs a watch that takes two hands to use when you can have a track pad on your thumb and use your index finger? This is just an example of how connected we will all be in the new age of wearable connectivity and the Internet of Everything. Gives new meaning to the phrase “thumbnail sketch”. […]
A new invention that allows the deaf and blind to communicate to digital devices and social networks. A truly remarkable use of technology to overcome extreme human limitations. Wonderful!
The next stage beyond the iWatch. For those that like tattoos, you can now have on-skin designs that are both visually pleasing and with functionality. One of those science fiction rapidly becoming science fact concepts.
