Wearable Tech World Week in Review: Leap Motion, Apple, Samsung

If you are a diehard gamer you may no longer need to buy the newest controller on the market. Wouldn’t you be able to immerse yourself even more into the game world if you could use your hands to control your actions? Leap Motion has teamed up with OSVR to bring that opportunity to your fingertips.

We are all familiar at this point with the idea of fitness bands and what they can offer the wearer. However, do you know just how fast this market is growing and where it will be in just four years? Juniper Research does. Have you ever considered that the information gathered from these fitness bands can also be used by healthcare professionals? This is a growing market that provides benefits on many levels.

I’m sure that at this point everyone is familiar with the Apple Watch. I’m also sure that people who didn’t consider owning a smartwatch in the past, may be tempted to try out the Apple Watch, simply because it is from Apple and will go nicely with their iPhone. However, is the Apple Watch irreversibly linked to Apple Pay? Find out if they each need the other in order to succeed.

If you have already purchased your Apple Watch, is it everything that you thought it would be? Probably not, this is why STRV, a full service mobile and digital agency, will be holding an iOS developers hack-a-thon. There will be two events, the first one will be held in Prague, Czech Republic and the second on the west coast in San Francisco.

Remember when Google Glass first came out? There is probably no doubt that everyone has seen the sky diving video taken with the device, but what happened to Google Glass? The feeling is that this is a new market and it takes time, and Google is in it for the long haul. CrowdOptic is working with Google Glass to deliver some interesting functionality. 

These are just of few of the stories that we have looked at this week. You should read the details of all of these stories, as well as find out what else is happening in the world of wearable technology. Go to Wearable Tech World and see what you’ve missed.
