Android Wear: Google's Wearables Platform Is Here

Android Wear: Google's Wearables Platform Is Here | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Google jumps headfirst into the smartwatch space with its new platform, Android Wear.


The idea behind Android Wear is to bring contextual information to the user when it's most needed. That can mean getting the latest updates from a social app, pumping in instant messages and photos, and showing the fastest route to get to your next appointment.

The first concept for Android Wear, which Google displays in a concept video, has a lot in common with what we've seen from both Google Now and Google Glass.


Android Wear is voice-enabled, following the "OK Google" dictation scheme of gathering information. Google also says that Android Wear will hit on the popular health monitor market, allowing for real-time access to data for both users and apps.

Someday, Surgeons Might Fix Your Broken Bones With Screws Made of Silk

Someday, Surgeons Might Fix Your Broken Bones With Screws Made of Silk | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Surgeons have used metal screws to reassemble broken bones for years, but there are drawbacks: if the metal corrodes, they've gotta come out. Biodegradable screws aren't as strong, and can cause inflammation. So a team of Harvard and Tufts scientists came up with screws and plates that are as tough as metal, but biodegradable. The trick? They're made out of silk.

The integration of consumer electronics with advanced imaging and analytical platforms holds great promises for medical point-of-care diagnostics and environmental rapid field testing for pollutants and viruses. A recent example is a Google Glass application and a server platform for instant, wireless diagnostic testing of a variety of health conditions and diseases. This technology allows Google Glass wearers to use the hands-free camera on the device to send images of diagnostic tests that screen for conditions such as HIV or prostate cancer.
