    Rubi Pregnancy Monitor at Wearable Technology Show

    4:26

    In my experience, expecting a new baby is a conflicting mix of emotions ranging from total joy to sheer terror…and I’m the dad. For mums-to-be there’s the extra worry from carrying the baby and 78% of women experience unhealthy levels of stress and anxiety during pregnancy. These concerns are not entirely unfounded as the risk … Continue reading Rubi Pregnancy Monitor at Wearable Technology Show → The post Rubi Pregnancy Monitor at Wearable Technology Show appeared first on Geek News Central.

    Laevo Exoskeleton at Wearable Technology Show

    4:35

    When it comes to exoskeletons, many will think of Ripley’s power loader in Aliens. While that kind of machine is still a little way off, what it did get right is that exoskeletons will be used to help with work and here’s an early example from Dutch firm Laevo. I chat with Boudewijn Wisse from Laevo and … Continue reading Laevo Exoskeleton at Wearable Technology Show → The post Laevo Exoskeleton at Wearable Technology Show appeared first on Geek News Central.

    Hospital VR Experience for Children at Wearable Technology Show

    4:05

    It’s stressful enough as an adult to go into hospital for an operation or procedure. Much as you know it’s for your own good and the doctors are there for your benefit, hospitals are still unfamiliar territory for most people and there are machines which you’re not quite to sure what they do and whether … Continue reading Hospital VR Experience for Children at Wearable Technology Show → The post Hospital VR Experience for Children at Wearable Technology Show appeared first on Geek News Central.

    Advanced Textiles Research at Wearable Technology Show

    4:35

    I’ve been attending the Wearable Technology Show for a couple of years now and it’s been interesting to see the change in fabrics, yarns and threads. In particular, the conductive wires for LEDs have gone from being obvious to almost invisible. If the LED wasn’t powered up, it would be unnoticeable except close up. The … Continue reading Advanced Textiles Research at Wearable Technology Show → The post Advanced Textiles Research at Wearable Technology Show appeared first on Geek News Central.

    Laser barcode scanners have revolutionised stock management and inventory processing in a wide range of industries and they’re ubiquitous at the supermarket checkout.

    Silver Threads from Statex at Wearable Technology Show

    5:07

    At the Wearable Technology Show, there were many vendors demonstrating clothing with built-in sensors and lights – I think there was even one with a Raspberry Pi tucked away in the lining. All of them have the problem of how to get power from a battery pack to the electronics and one solution is to … Continue reading Silver Threads from Statex at Wearable Technology Show → The post Silver Threads from Statex at Wearable Technology Show appeared first on Geek News Central.

Much of our day is spent indoors in often poor quality light conditions.
