BeBop's Smart Fabric puts Sensors in everything you Wear

BeBop's Smart Fabric puts Sensors in everything you Wear | Wearable Tech and the Internet of Things (Iot) | Scoop.it
Wearable sensors don't tend to do much; they're usually limited to health data like EKG readings or your heart rate. If BeBop Sensors has its way, though, they'll be useful for just about anything that comes in contact with your body.

The company is only providing the basic technology, not finished products, so it'll be a while before you see this smart cloth in something you can buy.

Whatever your niche or need BeBop's Smart Fabric makes Sensors  wearable and easy to adopt. At least that's the promise!

Do we really need wearable gadgets?
The Age
Even as a gadget lover I have to admit I just can't get excited about smart watches and other wearable tech. I haven't worn a wrist watch for many years and I'm not in a hurry to start again.

Google's Android Wear demos look slick, but it remains to be seen if the first wave of devices delivers on those promises.

Salesforce unveils big push into Wearable Technology

Salesforce unveils big push into Wearable Technology | Wearable Tech and the Internet of Things (Iot) | Scoop.it
Wearables are tech's trend du jour, and Salesforce is trying them on in a big way.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

Salesforce has jumped into recent investments in wearable startups and an initiative to get developers to build applications that connect devices worn on the face, wrist and body with Salesforce’s technology.  Salesforce’s interest in wearables illustrates that in addition to being a dominant provider of business applications, the company is also a major computing platform that other developers use to access customers or actually run their own businesses, Irvine said. Wearables are just one emerging technology that will get attention at Dreamforce, and are part of Salesforce’s larger goal of capitalizing on the so-called Internet of Things, which refers to the increasing number of Internet connected devices that are spewing out unprecedented quantities of data that promise countless insights to come. - To get out front on the wearable trend, Salesforce in June launched Salesforce Wear to entice developers to create more enterprise applications for wearable devices, with support for devices from Samsung Electronics Co., Google and Pebble, among others.
