Transcript of Wearable Tech: outlook Q1- 2015
Wat doen we als straks al die slimme technologie draagbaar wordt?De mobiele technologie werd slim, omdat je met je mobiele telefoon toegang kreeg tot een waaier van applicaties.
Nu wordt ze ook 'draagbaar'. Brillen, fitnessmeters en uurwerken openen voor de drager een nieuwe wereld vol mogelijkheden, en houden hem via zijn smartphone nog altijd verbonden met het internet.
Wat biedt die draagbare en contextrelevante technologie? Hoe wordt ermee omgegaan?1LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO

2013: Google GlassThe latest from Google is that a consumer edition of its wearable computer will be available "later in 2014." The company also recently announced that in addition to the lenseless Glass (currently, they work with only a frame), a prescription version and a sunglasses edition will eventually be available. Of course, the Explorer edition has been out for about a year; nifty features include Google search, turn-by-turn directions, Gmail, calendar, phone-call service, camera functions, and video capabilities

2013: PEBBLE SMARTWATCHPAIRS WITH PHONE + APPS2013: Pebble SmartwatchAfter a record-setting 2012 Kickstarter campaign, Pebble hit the market in 2013. The fact that the device actually looks like a damn nice wristwatch is proof that wearable tech doesn't have to be ugly. As for what the watch does: It pairs with your phone so you can answer calls, control music, receive texts, and check e-mail (it even tells time). It also has apps that check the weather, play games, and monitor how may calories you've burned (or not) throughout the day.

2009: FITBIT AND FITNESS TRACKERSStarting of the quantified self movement2009: Fitbit and the First Fitness TrackersOn January 30, 2014, technology-market-research firm ABI Research predicted that "medical, wellness, and sports and activity wearable devices will provide the bulk of wearable-device shipments this year." This massive market kickstarted into high gear in 2009, with the introduction of the first Fitbit, and since then has only grown as the "Quantified Self" movement took off. The original Fitbit clipped onto your clothes, but later models were released in the more familiar bracelet style of the Nike FuelBand and the Jawbone UP

2004: OAKLEY MP3 SUNGLASS AND BUILT IN MP3 PLAYER
2004: At the height of iPod mania, Oakley introduced the world's first sunglasses with a built-in MP3 player. The first-gen Thumps came with either 128 or 256 MB of storage (back when having even just a dozen digital songs available seemed amazing) and lasted about six hours when fully charged. What was most unusual was they really looked like any other pair of Oakley sport glasses, just with some ear buds and controls stuck on the temples.

2001: TIMEX INTERNET MESSENGER WATCHCHECK MAIL, TAKE NOTES, RECEIVE STOCK QUOTES,2001: Timex Internet Messenger WatchIn 1994, Timex introduced its Data Link watch, which the company liked to call the first wristwatch computer. Codeveloped with Microsoft, the DL was seen as a wearable alternative to early PDAs like the Palm Pilot (even Bill Gates owned one). It had a notes appto keep track of appointments and phone numbersand came loaded with some lo-fi games as well. In 2001, Timex upped its smartwatch game with the Timex Internet Messenger Watch. With this one, you could check e-mail, receive news, get stock quotes and sports scores, and send messagesplus it had typical sports-watch functions like a stopwatch and eight-lap memory. It was clunky, but it paved the way for many of today's smartwatches

2000: MOBILE BLUETOOTH EARPIECE PEOPLE TALKING TO THEMSELVES CRAZY LOOK
2000: Mobile Bluetooth Earpiece/HeadsetAlong with Y2K panic, the turn of the millennium greeted us with the launch of one of the lamest-yet-most-practical wearable-tech items ever: the Bluetooth mobile earpiece. A crime against style, there was simply no way to make these look goodespecially as people appeared to be talking to themselves while walking down the street. Still, it's a godsend for those who need hands-free phone communication. No matter how crazy you look

1992: L.A. GEAR LIGHT UP SHOES: WALKING AND LIGHTS
FIRST TECH DRIVEN CLOTHING
1992: Light-Up Shoes From L.A. GearThe fad didn't last long, but for a little while these early-nineties novelty sneakers were all the rage among kids (and regrettably, even some adults). The idea of adding lights to shoes so they light up when you walk is simple, but the popularity of L.A Lights proved there was an untapped consumer desire for tech-driven clothinghowever kitschy the result. Sadly, not long into its reign as king of disco sneakers, L.A. Gear ran into some trouble: first when it was disclosed the lighting mechanism contained small amounts of mercury, and then when even switching to environmentally friendly materials couldn't stop the fashion tide from changing.

1975: CALCULATOR WATCH WATCH AND STYLUS NERD CALCULATOR WATCH.1975: Calculator WatchWhen Pulsar released the first calculator watch for the Christmas market in 1975, the company clearly thought it was a luxe novelty item: The first run of 100 came in a case made of 18-karat gold and sold for $4,000. But it captivated the public; even President Ford added it to his holiday wishlist. Within months, Pulsar introduced a less expensive, stainless-steel version. Not exactly user-friendly, the watch came with a stylus to aid in pressing its minuscule buttons. Casio, Timex, and Seikoamong otherscontinue to make calculator watches, which stylish nerds covet and collect.

TWO WAY WRIST CHAT RADIO1946: Dick Tracy Two-Way Wrist RadioNo other cartoon gadget fired the imagination of generations of kids like detective Dick Tracy's two-way wrist radio. Though the allure of chatting with someone wirelessly through a watch faded with the dawn of the cell phone, fanboys everywhere still hold out hope for an Apple iWatch.

1266 EYEGLASSES:CORRECTIVE LENSESASSOCIATED TO READING AND MONKS: PRESTIGE
1266: EyeglassesIt's hard to pin down the exact year that eyeglasses were invented, as historians believe they more or less evolved from various kinds of lenses used around the globe. But most credit English philospher, Franciscan friar, and proto-tech-entrepreneur Roger Bacon with laying out the principles of modern spectacles. In 1266, Bacon published Opus Majus (pictured), a sprawling work about everything from physics to morals. In part five, which is all about optics, Bacon describes how corrective lenses work and how they can assist those afflicted with "weakness of sight
