Augmented reality comes to contact lenses

Augmented reality comes to contact lenses | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

Innovega is developing a contact lens called the iOptik lens that will provide the crucial step necessary to perceive an augmented, superimposed 3-D virtual reality.

 

It can also enhance your vision as you’re seeing normal reality. Using nanotechnology, the contact lenses allow users to perceive both reality and information provided by the Internet or another source.

 

The military is already exploring the use of these lenses, which could enable the distribution of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle intelligence in real time to soldiers in the field.

 

For civilian uses, the augmented view could allow for web surfing on the go. Innovega is particularly excited about 3D video gaming and is already laying the groundwork for that avenue. Everyone from tourists exploring a new city to drivers navigating a new route could benefit from augmented-reality lenses.

By 2016: 100M wearable wireless sensors

By 2016: 100M wearable wireless sensors | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

The market for wearable devices will exceed 100 million units annually by 2016, reports ABI Research in a new study. A study released by ABI last June estimated that 80 million of those units would be fitness sensors.

Big Data in Your Blood

Big Data in Your Blood | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

Sensors of your heart, blood, and brain are coming to market. These may a boon to science and personal health. For the companies involved, they may be goldmines of intimate real-time data on millions of subjects.


Later this year, a Boston-based company called MC10 will offer the first of several “stretchable electronics” products that can be put on things like shirts and shoes, worn as temporary tattoos or installed in the body. These will be capable of measuring not just heart rate, the company says, but brain activity, body temperature and hydration levels. Another company, called Proteus, will begin a pilot program in Britain for a “Digital Health Feedback System” that combines both wearable technologies and microchips the size of a sand grain that ride a pill right through you. Powered by your stomach fluids, it emits a signal picked up by an external sensor, capturing vital data. Another firm, Sano Intelligence, is looking at micro needle sensors on skin patches as a way of deriving continuous information about the bloodstream.

Your Car as Your Doctor

Your Car as Your Doctor | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

Ford is developing a car seat capable of monitoring drivers’ ECG to provide real-time health information and alerts of imminent cardiovascular issues such as a heart attack or arrhythmias.

My comment=> The technology is evolving rapidly.  How this will compete with or integrate with mobile devices and wearable monitoring devices remains to be seen.  The auto industry has had reasonable commercial success integrateing technology for entertainement purposes and also new safety technologies.  This health monitoring approach seems like a commercial gimmick, but might help sell cars.  i can envision the marketing of the speeding car with tachometer and heart rate monitor displayed side by side.

The Future Of Health Care Is You

The Future Of Health Care Is You | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

Devices like smartphones, Fuelbands, and Fitbits are capturing increasingly insightful data, giving us instant feedback on our health, from how we eat, sleep, and exercise, to our heart rates, blood pressure, and stress levels. For those seeking more complex data about themselves, companies like Wellness FX, 23&Me, and San Intelligence are offering the chance to look at our own individual blood chemistry and DNA and make healthier choices based on that info.

 

The technology is going to progress faster than we realize. Soon we’re going to be drinking milkshakes containing microchips that can feed back to us the state of our physical selves in real-time. And as we reach that point, the most productive health change you can make is to exercise a little better or eat a little more mindfully.
