Google Strikes Smart Contact Lens deal to track Diabetes and Cure Farsightedness

Google Strikes Smart Contact Lens deal to track Diabetes and Cure Farsightedness | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
With Glass and Android Wear, Google has already invested a lot of time and resources into developing the next-generation of wearables, but it's another of its eye-focused projects that has today received its first major boost.

Via TechinBiz
Farid Mheir's insight:

Strangely I never wrote about this but it certainly is worth a mention because Google has now made very strong moves towards "atoms and not bits" as Sergei Brin put it a few days ago, stating that Google has invested in search (bits) for a long time and is now complementing its focus to physical devices (atoms) such as the self driving car or here the contact lens.


This story is of particular importance as it shows that Google is not in the business of making contact lenses (or cars) but providing the R&D to disrupt industries that are not making the radical shifts they can by using digital technology.

Salesforce Wear Aims enters Enterprise & B2B2C Wearables Markets via @Forrester @jp_gownder

Salesforce Wear Aims enters Enterprise & B2B2C Wearables Markets via @Forrester @jp_gownder | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Digest...


On June 10, Salesforce.com announced Salesforce Wear, a bundle of free tools and reference applications aimed at evangelizing the power of enterprise wearables. The offering supports six different wearable devices, each with its own open-source reference application to help developers design and build wearable apps that connect to the Salesforce1 platform.

-- >  Salesforce Wear has the potential to turbo-charge the growing market for enterprise wearables.

-- >  Some of the reference applications are pure enterprise/B2B workforce enablement applications which can be generalized to other field service scenarios

-- >  Others reference apps offer solutioning for B2B2C scenarios – which Forrester has been covering extensively in our wearables research.

-- >  Salesforce Wear will offer enterprises a quicker path to creating different types of user scenarios.

-- >  In addition to I&O pros, other tech vendors should take note, too.

-- >  Salesforce’s move into this space both validates the enterprise wearables market and will spur it forward even more quickly.

Farid Mheir's insight:

This may feel a bit too much like Big Brother for some, but with the right kind of incentives, this may hold some promise. I can also envision large conferences where identifications can be moved from badges to wearable devices. Interesting that Salesforce is capturing this market first.

Sony Unveils A Wearable Device That Will Log Your Whole Life, Not Just Your Physical Activity #ces2014 via @bi

Sony Unveils A Wearable Device That Will Log Your Whole Life, Not Just Your Physical Activity #ces2014 via @bi | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

The idea is that the Core, a small, waterproof dongle less than a pinkie long, can be inserted into and worn in a variety of ways, like as wristband or clip. You then connect it with the LifeLog Android app, which lets you track and playback aspects of your life in a fun, colorful, and animated way.

For example, you can track your social life, entertainment activities, sleep patterns, what pictures you took when and where, different major life moments, the weather each day and in the future, and–of course–your physical activity levels. The goal is that, through the Core and the app, you will log your day, everyday, and then the duo will give you inspiration and recommendations.

Google Glass will be more successful among enterprise customers in the short term via @forrester @jp_gownder

Google recently announced an expansion of its Explorer Edition program to anyone in the U.S. — still at $1,500. This doesn't constitute the mass market release of the product; it's an incremental move to extend its beta program.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Very appropriate insight regarding this new technology. The video in this article shows a field repair scenario but I can also see applications in more mundane parcel delivery, order management, or customer service, where being able to recognize an address or a face can be extremely powerful.

Bedtime Stories: Learning from Sleep Data- from #jawbone #StrataConf 2014 via @mrogati | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
We optimize ads, but not our mood. We know more about our tweets than our own bodies. That's all about to change. As wearables transform the 'quantified self' from a niche to a mainstream market, they are generating vast amounts of data about our health, habits, and lifestyles
Farid Mheir's insight:

Fascinating insight that companies such as jawbone can derive from the trove of data that is captured by their wearable devices such as the UP bracelet. I've been wearing a fitbit for 3 months now and the sleep data is to me one of the most fascinating because it represents information that I did not have before (as oppposed to number of steps for example).


What I find interesting with Monica's work at jawbone is the anlaysis they've done over 50M nights of sleep and the kind of analysis that is expressed in the chart here. Wow, just so very insightful and useful. I'd love to be able to get insight on how I compare with similar people. And maybe one day get suggestion to improve my sleep.


Of course, privacy is Paramount. I found that my sleep patterns are very personal and that I would not want them to become public. Something to consider and enforce at all costs.
