10 Sensor Innovations Driving the Digital Health Revolution

10 Sensor Innovations Driving the Digital Health Revolution | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

A top10 list of Digital Sensorlocked onto touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell.

The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives. 

 

TOP10 innovation list includes :

SANO, ZEPHYR, CARDIIO, MC10, ALIVECOR, MEDSENSATION, FWS, WITHINGS, EQUIVITAL, SOMAXIS

Amico is a stylish bracelet that brings social networks to life. It connects you to relevant people in real life without interfering with your normal behavior and maintaining the emotions of meeting a person for the first time.

The product seems to be still in conception. No price yet.

 

If the intention is good, the product itself lacks entertaining features. Look at Nintendo 3DS and the Mii Collect application. It is so funny !  Just think how it could be if it would be linked to Social Networks.

I like the website said "But bear in mind that we’re in the “brick phone” phase, or version 1.0, of wearable tech", it is true that we just start wearable tech and we will creat more to make our life better such as mix wearable tech and cyborg, we might can hear more sounds like bat and dolphin, or see more colour in our world.
