The quantified workout: one run, eight trackers | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

From Nike to S Health, how do our fitness trackers measure up?

Every fitness device promises to help you get in shape by measuring and understanding your activity data, but can trackers actually help you become a healthier person? I strapped on eight different devices and apps and set out to learn everything I could about my body while taking a jog. My mile-and-a-half run up New York City's west side was tracked by RunKeeper, S Health Walking Mate, Fitbit Flex, Fitbit Zip, Withings Pulse,Jawbone Up, Nike+ Fuelband, and the Scosche MyTrek (which has been replaced with the Scosche Rhythm).

Twitter data analysis allows to geomap the emotional state

Twitter data analysis allows to geomap the  emotional state | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Scientists at The New England Complex Systems Institute have figured out an ingenious (and seemingly simple) way of checking the emotional and/or sentimental pulse of a city, all by utilizing collected Twitter data.

 

Tested out on the bustling city of New York,the NECSI analyzed collected data of millions of tweets with algorithms that checked key words, phrases and emoticons to determine the mood of the tweets.

 

By combining that info with geotagging provided by users the data is compiled into an overview "mood map" of the city, giving a very clear real-time snapshot of how a cities population is feeling and where they're feeling it.

A Pill That Tracks Your Health? The Reality Of The ‘Quantified Self' Movement | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Microsensors in your shoes compile data on where you go and what you do. Your workout clothes track your daily progress at the gym and tell you when to slow down or speed up. And as you sleep, a headband monitors your REM patterns.

A far-fetched sci-fi fantasy? Not at all. It's merely a glimpse into what might be possible through a movement called "The Quantified Self," which is part of the wider transformation being driven by the Internet of Everything (IoE).

A DIY body sensor kit for app developers and tinkerers

A DIY body sensor kit for app developers and tinkerers | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

A new body sensor kit allows developers to build new prototypes and projects that measure heart rate, skin conductance, movement and muscle activation. 

A hardware and software kit called BITalino includes a microcontroller unit, a battery block and a few different different physiological sensor modules that can be broken off and used individually or purchased in the form of an all-in-one board for prototyping.

Sensors in the kit include can track muscle activation (electromyography), skin conductance (electrodermal activity), heart rate (electrocardiography), movement (accelerometry) and ambient light.

BITalino’s developers say it can be used to “support classroom activities, interface with other devices, or perform rapid prototyping of end-user applications in the field of physiological computing.”

It comes at a price of 149 Euros, or about $200

Smartwatches may fail -- but wearables won't

Smartwatches may fail -- but wearables won't | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

For all the hype, smartwatches as we're thinking of them will likely fail. (...) Smart watches could be hugely successful, if we change our expectations. We need to change the conversation and address the whole notion of wearable devices in general. We shouldn’t look at duplication in functions worn on another part of your body. Rather, if I look at wearable devices as part of a personal sensor network and not just a remote window to my phone, that would have far greater value and one I’d be willing to pay for.

Data Scientist: The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century

Data Scientist: The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Who Are These People?

If capitalizing on big data depends on hiring scarce data scientists, then the challenge for managers is to learn how to identify that talent, attract it to an enterprise, and make it productive. None of those tasks is as straightforward as it is with other, established organizational roles. Start with the fact that there are no university programs offering degrees in data science. There is also little consensus on where the role fits in an organization, how data scientists can add the most value, and how their performance should be measured.
