Nanotechnology In Wearable Devices

Nanotechnology In Wearable Devices | APPS KINGDOM eDIGEST | Scoop.it

If current research is an indicator, wearable electronics will go far beyond just very small electronic devices or wearable, flexible computers. Not only will these devices be embedded in textile substrates but an electronics device or system could ultimately become the fabric itself. Electronic textiles (e-textiles) will allow the design and production of a new generation of garments with distributed sensors and electronic functions. Such e-textiles will have the revolutionary ability to sense, act, store, emit, and move – think biomedical monitoring functions or new man-machine interfaces – while ideally leveraging an existing low-cost textile manufacturing infrastructure.
All these wearable and potentially textile-embedded electronic gadgets will require power; and it wouldn't make sense to have to plug your sleek flexible sleeve display into a bulky lithium-ion battery brick. Researchers are therefore pushing the development of wearable energy storage. Especially supercapacitors with a cable-type architecture could lead to flexible energy storage devices that can remove traditional restriction and achieve a subversive technology that could open up a path for design innovation.
Researchers have now demonstrated that flexible cotton threads can be used as a platform to fabricate a cable-type supercapacitor.

Wat is nanotechnologie?

 

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanotechnologie

 

Nanotechnologie is de techniek die het mogelijk maakt te werken met deeltjes in de grootteorde van nanometers (afkorting nm, een miljardste van een meter).

Dit is een schaal van grootte die net boven die van atomen (0,060 nm tot 0,275 nm) en eenvoudige moleculen ligt. Een criterium is dat een structuur in op zijn minst één dimensie minder dan 100 nanometer groot is. Veelgebruikte toepassingen van nanotechnologie zijn de emulsie van kleine deeltjes ('nanodeeltjes') titaniumoxide in verf- en vernissoorten, deeltjes in zonnebrandcreme, cosmetica, koolstof ingeckotape (sterk plakband, principe bewezen, in ontwikkeling)[1][2], zilver in voedselverpakking, kleding, verband, desinfectiemiddelen en huishoudapparatuur en cerium als katalysator bij verbranding.

De grote opslagcapactiteit van computergeheugens is tevens een toepassing van nanotechnologie. Een probleem van nanotechnologie is de onbekende giftigheid van de nieuwe producten.

What Will Wearable Apps Do?

What Will Wearable Apps Do? | APPS KINGDOM eDIGEST | Scoop.it
Clever apps might persuade people that they need a wrist-worn computer.

 

The age of wearable computing is upon us. Forget the debate over how capable or fashionable the first devices are, how popular they may eventually become, or even whether we fully understand what we’re getting into with these devices . The big question is simply: what will they do? And the answer will have much to do with the apps that emerge.

 

Both hardware makers and software developers hope that wearables, like the smartphone, tablet, and television, will become a new platform for application development.

 

The two most promising platforms are the headset and the smart watch.

 

But while the only viable headset is Google’s still-in-beta Glass, smart watches and smart watch apps have arrived. These early smart watches may also help clarify what does and doesn’t work for software development in the broader emerging category of wearable technology.

 

Smart-watch makers also firmly believe that all wearable computing devices will get better. Samsung executives called the first model of the Galaxy Gear “a concept device,” and reports suggest that a new Galaxy Gear could appear as soon as next January’s Consumer Electronics Show.

GOOD iPAD APPS FOR CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT | APPS KINGDOM eDIGEST | Scoop.it

"Managing one's class effectively is not an easy task. We've probably all had issues with classroom management in our careers as teachers and educators but experience has taught us a lot about how to deal with it. Some teachers  subsume the core classroom management in behaviour management which is completely wrong. Behavioural issues are only part of classroom management and the other parts include things like, getting students engaged, increasing their focus and attention, making them responsible for their learning... to mention but a few."

Where is wearable tech headed?

Where is wearable tech headed? | APPS KINGDOM eDIGEST | Scoop.it

Wearable technology is all the rage, and it’s only the beginning of an array of connected devices that will invade our homes, cars and even our bodies.

 

Imagine a small adhesive strip that can collect intimate biological data and tell your smartphone that you need to apply sunscreen or hydrate.

 

How about a sensor for service dogs that enables them to transmit “verbal” commands to their handlers?

 

Around the world, researchers are working behind the scenes and around the clock on jaw-dropping applications for wearable technology, driving innovation into areas that were considered science fiction just a few years ago.

 

We no longer just use technology. The fact that tech is now all around us, on us, and even in us has given birth to a new buzz phrase, the internet of things. The very diversity of internet of things applications is staggering, ranging from smart consumer products to devices that monitor health and behavior—human or animal.

 

The first entries in the wearable tech space were watches and corrective lenses. Evolution brought health and fitness monitors to the scene. After that came smart watches and activity trackers.

 

Samsung recently unveiled its new Android-powered Galaxy Gear smart watch, a touch-screen timepiece that acts as an extension of your smartphone to stream music, track exercise and fitness goals, install apps and make phone calls.

 

With just one small wristband, Jawbone UP tracks sleeping, movement and eating patterns—real-time vital information for a holistic approach to optimal health.

 

The driving force behind the development and adoption of IoT is the wireless connectivity that frees technology to be anywhere and do anything. Sensor-embedded devices can transmit our personal data to the cloud for analysis and safekeeping, but they can also connect to processors like smartphones and tablets that can negotiate data from multiple wearable devices.

 

Wearable technology has the potential to enhance our surroundings, improve our health and change the way we interact with each other. The only two ingredients anyone needs to make the future a reality is imagination and a strong foundation of standards-based connectivity technology. So exactly where is wearable tech heading? The answer is the internet of everything!
