Levi’s smart jacket that’s encapsulated with Google’s Jacquard technology has the goal to provide practical purpose to wearables. Together they make up to take the innovation of the product and widen its potential in the market. The partnership envisions that the future for wearable technology in the fashion industry is going to be more about smart clothing. Google said that Jacquard can make it to blend touch and gesture interactions into any textile that uses standard and industrial approaches. Even clothes and furniture can easily be transformed into interactive surfaces. A trucker jacket was established as the starter consumer product of the partnership between Levi’s and Google and was set to be out in the market by September 2017. Ivan Poupyrev, Jacquard’s leader for Google’s ATAP group and Paul Dillinger, Levi’s head for global product innovation, kicked off the roadshow to promote their $350 machine washable jacket at the 2017 Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. The user is allowed to take control of a phone through a patch of fabric on the left sleeve cuff. A dongle, coded as “Jacquard Tag” is attached into the sleeve to provide connections between the phone and the sleeve. The user can receive […]
Cindy Wu, a mechanical engineering student from The University of British Columbia, developed a new Smart Bra called Vitali. Wu started to suffer from depression during her college days. As a remedy, she had been doing yoga to help her improve her health and cope up with her depression. Yoga has helped her and eventually encouraged her to become an instructor. Overwhelmed, Wu decided to make something very enthusiastic. She made a smart sports bra where in it could help her achieve the benefits of doing exercises even off the mat and named it Vitali. This device is equipped with intelligent wearable technology. It is attached with sensors that measure the vital signs like the heart rate variability. HRV is the key indicator of stress. The device is made with flexible fabric sensors which monitors chest’s movements. Vitali’s reasonable notes: Specifically created for women. Accounted ambitious and unique for an experiment on undergarment for company. Specially made to be worn for athletic purposes. Smooth enough to be worn example by users hindered by bulky wristbands and clip-on devices. How Vitali functions: The device has an electronics that are centralized in a “gem”, which is a stone-looking device. The gem can […]
During the course of my career, I’ve participated in multiple real life software projects and observed how things are done on all levels: decision making, practices adoption, team building, recruiting, skill distribution, etc. Obviously, different approaches yielded different results. Being an improvement-oriented type of person, I noticed and collected the most effective practices and best practical tricks to help me up in my work. Learning from observation is a hard and lengthy way to do it. I would be extremely happy to pick this knowledge earlier from books instead. Unfortunately, I found none on the topic. So I decided to share my experience with other seekers of this kind of knowledge. Hopefully, it’ll save them few years of personal research. In this article, you will learn how you can beat the average industry performance by producing sturdy and reliable software products that require 5-10 times less maintenance. I can say without false modesty that in the past 10-15 years, I (personally as well as my teams) have exceeded all expectations, leaving a trail of successes behind. Managers cannot be happier. Once my team pulled up an important project in an impossibly short time frame, for which we were given a […]
A fitness tracker has more to offer beyond casting off weights. It collects data from your body stretching out to the point of saving your life. The fitness tracker is actually more useful than you think it is. Reports of cases where Fitbit performed it’s saving of life: Patricia Lauder, 73 Years of age, from Connecticut, USA. Fitbit data was noticed as recording an abnormally heart rate resting high pointing of above 140 beats per minute which indicates a considerably higher than her normal 60 to 70. Lauder had already been to her doctor following a current infection on her sinus and was waiting for the results. The result was quite alarming that Lauder has called 911 for her to be sent to the emergency ward. She was then scanned at the hospital and results showed that there were blood clots in both of her lungs. This circumstance drafted her heart to work harder and recoup for her low oxygen levels. Being disregarded, the bulky clot is potentially dangerous because it stops the flow of blood towards the lungs. 24 hours after the treatment, her lungs and heart has returned to its normal performance as there was no longer a blood clot […]
We live in an era where VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), and MR (mixed reality) are all largely spoken about. Everyone talks about the potential benefits of incorporating these technologies but how much of it really materializes is what matters. VR is one of the very first artificial realities that started creating a ripple and eventually paved the way for the others. One can argue that Mixed Reality would be the most practical approach. But there is no denying that in some fields VR might still remain a more beneficial option than AR or MR. For example, in the gaming sector where blocking distractions and offering a truly immersive “out-of-the-world” experience would bear a lot of value. So VR would be the best choice. That being said, another industry that can be truly revolutionized with the integration of VR is real estate. Let us compare the general scenario that often occurs in real estate market: Scenario 1: Without VR: A real estate agent travels all day. He travels with his clients to show them property. After showing all the property only real estate agents finally know that clients aren’t ready to pick even one among them. With VR: The […]
One of the next technological revolutions on the horizon is the emerging platform of the Internet of Things (IoT). The core of its promise is a world where household appliances, cars, trucks, trains, clothes, medical devices and, much more would be connected to the internet via smart sensors capable of sensing and sharing information. As its presence in our lives grows, the Internet of Things (IoT) will be fundamental to most things we see, touch, and experience—UX design will play an important, if not essential, role in that advancement. From healthcare to transportation—from retail to industrial applications, companies are constantly searching for new ideas and solutions in order to create new experiences, deliver greater value to customers, and make people’s lives easier and more efficient. If you think you don’t know what IoT is, you’ve probably already experienced it and just didn’t realize what it was. Home automation hubs like Google’s Home and Amazon’s Alexa, the Nest Learning Thermostat, Philips Hue lightbulbs, Samsung SmartThings, Amazon Go, and fridges that monitor their contents all fall into the IoT category. Flo, smart residential water systems that monitor water efficiency, leaks, and waste The next wave of IoT will connect millions of devices […]

Robots will take control. It’s a scary state of mind, but it depends on how humans will control it. Automotive, ADAS and self-driving systems are fast-growing markets that are already adopted by all the big players and brands in the car and high-tech industry. It’s not so obvious that the “big boys” of the car industry trust that solution and are already implementing it into new cars. Behind the decision stands a lot of thinking and questions to ask: Is it safe? What are the risks? Is it cost effective? Is it the best timing to go to market? Do we really need it? What are the real benefits? Everyone heard about Mobileye’s solution, “Tesla”s self-driving car and google’s vision/ But behind the big names, there are a lot of types and solutions that we still didn’t hear about them, and new trends and technologies that are being developed in the back yard of the big companies. Automotive solutions combine inside several solutions that already exist such as, Computer vision, AI, AR, and IoT. What stands behind all the new buzz words, is it just a narrow point of view into the future where we as humans will try to […]
Flirting with someone you are interested with or with someone who’s interested in you may sound a bit awkward in real life. The effort might look very conventional and would probably be ignored somehow especially for women. Fortunately, four students from London’s Royal College of Art designed an accessory that encourages an experience of dating and courtship for daily life and they called it Ripple. They found that the increasing consumption of digital technology has led people to become more deeply involved in a virtual world. People are more active in virtual than on real life making us separated from communicating with others. We are then behaving as if we are just on our own, when actually there so many living, breathing people surroundijng us. This device was designed specifically for women to sense who’s checking and assesses who’s interested. With Ripple, you don’t need to go online for a dating app. The new wearable flirting device is intended to cause meeting people much easier. Ripple components: Two built-in cameras. To scan and monitor your environment. Send you a signal when there is someone whose gaze remains in you. To detect your possible admirer. Tentacle-shaped two shoulder ring. Move flirtatiously […]
