New York City, NY, USA (February 17, 2014) — According to USATODAY, Google’s vision for wearable technology took another ambitious leap forward Thursday when the world’s largest Internet search company announced it is developing a smart contact lens. The consequences of such as ambitious leap will be debated at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologies.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechmunich.eventbrite.com).

The project is one of the latest inventions to emerge from the company’s Google X unit, which works on long-term, risky new technology that may never become commercially successful but has the potential to change the way people live in drastic ways. The unit has already produced self-driving cars and connected eyewear called Google Glass.

To make the contact lens, Google had to design its own tiny chips and mount them on very thin, flexible, plastic-like film. The chip and a sensor are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material. A tiny pinhole in the lens lets tear fluid from the surface of the eye to seep into the glucose sensor. The prototypes can take a glucose level reading once every second, Google said. The project’s co-founders, Brian Otis and Babak Parviz, worked together at the University of Washington. Parviz joined Google X to work on Google Glass and Otis followed soon after and started trying to build a contact lens from scratch.

Google said it has done “multiple studies” to test the comfort and functionality of the lens and explore how tear glucose correlates with blood glucose, particularly in people with diabetes. It is also talking about the technology with the Food & Drug Administration. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechnologiessanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechnologieslondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologiesnewyorkcity.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechnologiesseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechnologiesmunich.eventbrite.com).

Why Wearable Tech is all but Fad at Conferences in San Francisco, New York, London, Seoul and Munich

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking takes Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (www.wearable-computing-conference.com) global: New York City, San Francisco, London, Seoul and Munich, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”.

New York City, NY, USA (February 16, 2014) — Is wearable technology definitely destined for the great success that its many advocates might suggest? Hundreds of developers and enthusiasts about these technologies will find out at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologies.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechmunich.eventbrite.com).

As reported by Forbes contributor Georgiana Foster, for real success in the world of technology, entirely new products must be introduced that can create entirely new markets, thus impacting society on a much deeper level. At the moment, a lot of what she is seeing just doesn’t do all that much. And for a trend that includes the word ‘wearable’ in its product description, she claims she honestly wouldn’t be caught dead in a lot of it.

There seems to be a huge gap between what is being made and what the female consumer, in particular, would be willing to purchase, Foster continues on her argument. “Almost everything available is currently too chunky and masculine. The products seem to be aimed at men with a vague hope that (maybe) some women might like them. Let’s think about who, between men and women, is more likely to wear an accessory, or even multiple accessories at the same time to begin with. Surely the answer is transparently obvious.”

Design needs to be a much more important factor when it comes to wearable technology, in order for it to appeal to absolutely everyone, including women. Foster can’t help but wonder if it’s a case of the tech industry simply needing more female designers? But even more crucially, these products need a real use and purpose. In this new digital age, what a brand actually means is just as, if not more, important to the consumer than simply what it does. It doesn’t take a genius to predict that the brand that manages to reach equilibrium between style and substance holds the key to tech world domination, she concludes.

The future is here, with the production of a new generation of technologies such as Google Glass, Apple “iWatch” and Samsung Galaxy Gear, among others, that will allow users to interact with computing devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearablecompconsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearablecompconlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearablecompcon.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearablecompconseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearablecompconmunich.eventbrite.com).

Google Glass at Wearable Computing Conference 2014 San Francisco, New York, London, Seoul and Munich

New York City, NY, USA (February 16, 2014) — According to a report by CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/21/tech/innovation/google-glass-firefighter), Patrick Jackson has developed an app for Google Glass, Google’s experimental head-mounted computer, which feeds important information directly to the eye-line of firefighters in an emergency. When a building is on fire, every second counts for the first responders rushing to the scene. This computer-savvy firefighter in North Carolina is hoping a bit of futuristic wearable technology and clever programming can help save time and lives, themes that will be covered at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (March 18), London (May 29), New York City (July 31), Seoul (September 25) and Munich (November 20).

A self-taught programmer, Jackson first started tinkering with computers when he was 7 and later spent a year studying computer science in college before transferring to the University of North Carolina, Asheville, for an environmental management and policy program. He became a firefighter. About four years ago, he purchased a smartphone and was inspired to start programming again. “Since then I’ve taught myself way more than I ever knew about programming. I’ve developed an Android app, an iPhone app and a Glass app,” Jackson said.

His first project was the Android app Firefighter Log, which routed key information directly to the smartphone, including text messages from dispatchers, streams of emergency radio feeds, and location information for fires and nearby hydrants. Jackson says more than 20,000 people have downloaded the apps. To get his hands on Google Glass, Jackson submitted his idea to Google’s IfIHadGlass competition.

By routing information directly to Google Glass, the app can save firefighters from having to stop what they’re doing in order to reach for a radio, smartphone, tablet or computer. Jackson plans on adding even more useful data in future versions, like information on specific buildings including blueprints, potential building hazards and contact information for owners. A firefighter might be able to say an address out loud or simply look at a building with the Google Glass camera to retrieve information.

Google Glass can also record the first video of a situation when crews arrive. That early documentation will be important to fire investigations down the line. For now, Google Glass isn’t compatible with the oxygen masks firefighters wear on the ground, so the app is more for external personnel. Jackson’s Glass stays behind in the truck.

Other fire departments and researchers also are experimenting with wearable technology, thanks to a recent availability of affordable wearable sensors that can track vitals and environmental factors like air quality and temperature. The Wearable Advanced Sensor Platform, or WASP, can track a firefighter’s location as well as physical data such as heart rate, breathing and activity levels in real time. A Belgium finalist for Microsoft’s Imagine Cup created a system that combines location sensors and augmented reality glasses to help firefighters move around buildings when there is minimal visibility.

The future is here, with the production of a new generation of technologies such as Google Glass, Apple “iWatch” and Samsung Galaxy Gear, among others, that will allow users to interact with computing devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechnologiessanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechnologieslondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologiesnewyorkcity.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechnologiesseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechnologiesmunich.eventbrite.com).

Aditya Bansal and Praveen Elak, Weartrons, Presenting Run-n-Read at Wearable Computing Conference NYC

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking takes Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (www.wearable-computing-conference.com) global: New York City, San Francisco, London, Seoul and Munich, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”.

New York City, NY, USA (January 29, 2014) — Aditya Bansal, Technical Co-Founder, and Praveen Elak, Business Co-Founder, of Weartrons Labs, will present at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in New York City (January 30), San Francisco (March 18), London (May 29), Seoul (September 25) and Munich (November 20).

Started in 2013 by experienced hardware specialists and product evangelists Mr. Bansal and Mr. Elak, Weartrons imagines and creates wearable electronics products that aim to make day to day life better. Based in New York, NY, Weartrons is committed to building simple and inexpensive products that anyone can use. As a child, co-founder Mr. Bansal was a constant source of consternation for his parents due to his tendency to dismantle every electronic object in the house. Years later, aided by a PhD from Purdue, he creates wearable electronics to common problems. Not satisfied with a PhD from SUNY Buffalo, Mr. Elak did an Exec MBA from Wharton. Armed with these degrees, he has been walking the line between business and technology with a successful mobile software venture in its exit phase.

Weartrons, creator of wearable electronics products that aim to make day to day life better, launched last year a project on Dragon Innovation’s crowdfunding platform. Weartrons’ goal was to raise funds to begin production of its small device, Run-n-Read. The Run-n-Read is a device that enables people to read while working out and can be used with most cardiovascular workout machines, such as treadmills, elliptical trainers, stepmills, stairmasters and stationary bikes. It reduces the strain on eyes while reading on a train or bus.

“Run-n-Read is providing an elegant solution for a problem that many people can easily relate to and have assumed that there is no fix for it,” said Mr. Elak. “We are launching on Dragon Innovation’s platform as we believe that their deep experience and practical knowledge in volume manufacturing of electronic products will help us recognize and address – all of the second-, third-, and fourth- order problems. Those are the things you can’t learn elsewhere unless you try and fail, something we cannot afford.”

What looks like a smaller version of a zippo lighter with a clip, is actually a stabilizing device that makes it easier to read while your head and/or body is moving. Clipped to your headband or to your shirt, the Run-n-Read uses motion sensors and tiny controllers to sync your head movements with a tablet via Bluetooth. The device tracks the user’s head movements and then adjusts the text on the screen in real time so that it bounces around in time to the user’s pace. Though a person standing nearby can see the text jumping up and down, the person wearing the device would see the text as perfectly still.

Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion,” will examine wearable technologies’ functions, application, the competition and possibilities for economic and personal growth. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors.Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to information@goldennetworking.com.
