by Jeremiah on August 24, 2014

LG G Watch R

Next week in Berlin LG is going to reveal its brand new LG G Watch R, in answer to the now in favor Moto 360.

We’re not really sure what LG had in mind by this launch. It seems like they’re upgrading their own “squared” LG G Watch a little too soon, seeking after a perfectly circular classic look. But the timing looks to be perfectly planned, and perhaps the G Watch was simply pre-released to “test the market” in preparation for the sleeker G Watch R timepiece.

Michael Bastian - HP Smartwatch

Wearable gadgets have made a great leap into the consumer market over the last couple of years. The most popular products in the wearable gadget arena are the “SmartWatches”. However most of these smart watches look like some geek product from the belly of a CPU and have little to no aesthetic or classy appeal to them. Owing to market demands, Hewlett Packard decided to enter the field with a bang and has announced the release of a high-tech fashion watch for later this year. The product would be engineered to tick the style box while retaining productivity. For this they team up with fashion retailer Gilt and a renowned American designer Michael Bastian.

Technology You Can Wear: the 2014 Shortlist

by Jeremiah on July 11, 2014

This year has so far brought nothing if not a multitude of mind-blowing technological innovations. In addition to the range of sophisticated technologies evolving for future markets, we’re even seeing the sci-fi daydreams of our youth coming to fruition – and 2014 shows no sign of losing momentum on the tech solutions front.

Here’s a peek inside the technological masterpieces taking this year’s gadget fans by storm, from the everyday to the extraordinary.

Pebble Smartwatch

Pebble Watch

Paired with your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth, the Pebble Smartwatch allows users to receive push notifications like Facebook messages, calls, texts and emails – putting the power of instant, uncomplicated communication right on your wrist. This highly customisable watch uses E-paper technology like you’d find on a Kindle, meaning display brightness will never be a problem – and when you’re out for a run, you can even track your time and distance, toggling your music in the process. All you need to get this up and running is the Pebble app on your smartphone.

LG Lifeband Touch

LG Lifeband

It looks like LG have broken into the fitness market – and their first contribution to the sporting space is pretty nifty indeed. The Lifeband Touch is a wristband with the functionality we’ve come to expect from top-of-the-range fitness trackers, and a few welcome extras. Unlike competing products, this wristband fits on like a bracelet rather than a watch and has an OLED display where you can find incoming call notifications and heart rate tracking, when paired with LG’s Earphone Heart Rate Monitor. Get your playlist sorted and you’re good to go.

Body Worn Cameras

Body Worn Camera

This wearable tech does a whole lot more than streamline your lifestyle. The body worn camera movement is revolutionising the world of law enforcement, offering communities throughout the US and the UK a new level of public safety. The body cameras now worn by officers at police departments across America have the functionality to discreetly record all incidents, providing greater access to evidence than ever before, and even managing to prevent crime through their presence alone.

Rusty: Wired Series

Rusty Wired Series

This nifty little innovation is set to solve one of modern civilisation’s greatest and most excruciating problems – the tangled earphones phenomenon. Rusty’s new kitted-out hoody allows the hood’s elastic drawstrings to double as earphones, offering a simple, elegant and game-changing solution to the unbearable nuisance of manoeuvring and detangling earphone wires. Simply connect your iPhone or iPod via the jack input in the hoody’s inside pockets and you’re sorted. Machine washable and available in various styles for both men and women.

Google Glass

Google Glass

Google Glass is still in the trialling phases, but that doesn’t stop it from being the most hotly anticipated body worn tech in the space. This wearable computer has an optical head-mounted display where the wearer can find information presented in a hands-free smartphone-style format. Language voice commands provide a means of control, with users able to take photos, record 720p HD video and use a host of Google and third party apps. Available in a range of exquisite frame designs, this is the ultimate style and substance combo.
