Excerpt:

Garten began by describing Muse’s ability to distinguish a calm mind from an active one, then got into one of its more cutting-edge features, which, though it has not been rolled out commercially, a hacker can set up. With the hack in place, she said, once the user has succeeded in learning to control brain activity (specifically, to vary the speed of electrical pulses by closing his eyes or breathing deeply), he could potentially use the feature to interact with and control physical objects. Garten described it as “telekinesis.”

Fitbit Surging 13% After Analyst Says It's In Shape And Ready To Sprint

Fitbit Surging 13% After Analyst Says It's In Shape And Ready To Sprint | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Fitbit shares are spiking more than 13% after the dual publication of May sales results -- which showed Fitbit devices outsold Apple Watches -- and a bullish Wall Street note that said Fitbit sales are in shape and poised to take off.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Interesting figures : 

  • Fitbit will ship 16 million devices this year
  • Fitbit sold over 10 million fitness trackers devices last year (from TechNewsToday.com)
  • RBC surveys of potential wearable-device buyers show that consumers are more included to purchase a fitness tracker than a smartwatch.
  • Fitbit sold 850,000 of its devices in May, beating the 777,000 AppleWatches sold during the same period.
  • Fitbit Inc. jumped more than 50% in its public trading debut earlier in the month and has gained another 18% since that day. But according to RBC Capital Markets, this growth is just the beginning.
