As sensors shrink, watch as ‘wearables’ disappear

Forget “wearables,” and even “hearables.” The next big thing in mobile devices: “disappearables.” Even as the new Apple Watch piques consumer interest in wrist-worn devices, the pace of innovation and the tumbling cost, and size, of components will make wearables smaller – so small, some in the industry say, that no one will see them. Continue reading “As sensors shrink, watch as ‘wearables’ disappear”

Health-Care Future? High-Tech Sensors Will Lead to Highly Personalized Care

Instead of just keeping tabs on your activity level, high-tech sensors embedded throughout your home, your car and maybe even under your skin could keep tabs on your every waking moment. The future of health looks a lot like the fitness tracker you might already wear on your wrist or your waistband.
