Wearables: Everything is becoming smart!
Not only your mobilephone is smart these days - smart wristbands, smartwatches and smartglasses are increasingly becoming part of peoples everyday live. The smart gadgets that you wear on your body are called wearables. During the last few years science has finally caught up with the fantasies that have been around for more than 30 years. In the 80s movie terminator virtual real time information was augmented in the real world, today this is no longer a sience-fiction scenario but rather reality. Devices like the Google Glass or the Optivent X make it possible.
But not only the Terminator fantasies are becoming reality. So far we may not be able to provide a virtual reality, that cannot be distinguished from real reality, like it is shown in the matrix movies, but virtual reality glasses like the Oculus Rift are already doing a great job of letting us immerse into a virtual world. Besides all the smart glasses that give us vision of the virtual world there are other devices that support us in our everyday live. Smart wristbands e.g. can track your fitness, connect with your phone and allow you to share your information on social media. The MYO gesture control armband recognizes your gestures and makes a handsfree control of technical devices possible.
