Wearable Technology- Beyond Google Glass

Wearable technology is one of the biggest topics at this years’ CES conference. You are probably already familiar with Google Glass and calorie counters like FitBit, but those devices are just the beginning.

At the conference on Monday, Intel announced a number of wearable smart devices they will release this year including watches, ear-buds, and a headset. All of these items can be placed in a charging bowl to recharge.

The rising trend of smart devices is leading to some truly unique inventions, that go far beyond standing in as a replacement for your smart phone. Lumo BodyTech has announced the Lumo Lift. The Lumo Lift monitors its wearer’s body position, and vibrates if they start to slouch. Currently the device is a small clip which is attached to clothing, but the company plans to further develop the product, so that in the future they can release a version that comes in the form of jewelry.
