Software in the cloud, which means you can make a cheap robot smarter over time, without needing to replace the hardware.
Want a battery that can stretch and twist? You got it. Even better, it's microbial-based, so human sweat delivers fuel for the microbes. Perfect for wearable tech that measures fitness. No word yet on how or if you clean it...
Demo from a DIY wearables workshop. This solves the perennial problem of not being able to see what's at the bottom of your bag.
Curious about how wearables work, I took part in a workshop at Helio Makerspace in Montreal: Electronics 101. After a thorough lecture on circuit theory by instructor, Murray Pearson, we got down to making circuits using LED lights (aka "throwies"), coin cell batteries, breadboards (for connecting wires) and a multimeter (measuring voltage/current) which we got to...

Surrounded by other neurotech enthusiasts and experts, I tried the Muse headband at a local NeuroTechX event in Montreal. Our questions ranged from practical to highly technical.
Eyewear with hidden sensors to detect brain activity. Bio-feedback to train you to calm down and focus. Meditation made easy.
Interactive temporary tattoos used to send and receive data. Input device (trackpad), output display, communication.
Accurately predicts fertility window up to 5 days in advance. Tracks changes in hormonal levels, skin temperature, stress levels, sleep quality.
The skin is the only organ that is purely innervated by the sympathetic nervous system (and not affected by parasympathetic activation). The following health concerns can be monitored via EDA (electro-dermal activity). This makes them perfect candidates for wearables worn on the skin.
A smart wrist-strap that lets you take phone calls via your fingertip - no earphone or speaker necessary. Attaches to any smart watch or analog wrist-watch.
