CES 2013: LG Smart Activity Tracker Wristband Takes Aim at Nike+ FuelBand | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

The LG Smart Activity Tracker actually looks a lot like the Nike+ FuelBand, and has many of the same features. It has an accelerometer and altimeter to measure activity. It will know whether you’re walking, running, or sitting, and its data can synced to an app on Android smartphones. It will also work with LG Smart TVs to sync up with on-screen exercise programs. LG also plans on adding a heart-rate monitor, which would be a pretty cool addition. Also, it has a touchscreen.

Gamification: professional design is the key for success

Gamification: professional design is the key for success | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

"Brushed your teeth this morning? Congratulations, you get 20 points. Hit your quarterly performance target early? Good work, you get half a day's extra holiday..."

 

BBC journalist Nic Fleming investigates the hype of Gamification, a 2011 buzzword and future trend that does not araise exactly like Gartner predicted.

A lot of companies or agencies are trying to make gamification, but because of poor Gamedesig, Gartner predicts that by 2014, 80% of the gamification applications will fall to deliver.

RISR – a Wearable Sensor to improve the Body Language.

RISR – a Wearable Sensor to improve the Body Language. | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

RISR is a wearable sensor network that teaches you how to improve your body language through vibration feedback. It detects and analyzes through an Infrared camera the posture of your social target. Algorythms based on psychological theories of gestures (eg the Mirroring effect) calculate the appropriate posture for you and make the sensors vibrate to give you the best control on your body's nonverbal communication.

There are a lot of questions remaining about the reality of this product and its detailed hardware-software specifications.

Techcrunch featured the video on Sept. 10th. But no corporate information on RISR website. It seems that the product is developped by School of Art & Design in Basel, Switzerland.  Anyway, the concept seems interesting. Waiting getting more information.
