Venture Capitalists Help Wearable Companies Expand Their Wares | Info @ CrunchBase | Wearable computing, wearable connected objects | Scoop.it

Crunchbase Blog: "There are augmented reality headsets, such as the Microsoft Hololens, interactive textiles like the conductive yarn that Google’s Project Jacquard is developing for full-body monitoring, and hearing devices such as Eargo, which raised $13 million from Maveron and others in June.

According to CrunchBase, venture investors have spent nearly $2.6 billion backing 138 wearable companies since 2008. Over half of this total ($1.6 billion) has gone into 45 California-based startups.

Between 2013 and 2014, venture funding for wearable companies nearly tripled from $361.5 million to just over $1 billion. While this is primarily due to Magic Leap’s two funding rounds that alone total $592 million, other notable fundings include Athos’ $12.2 million Series B led by DCM Ventures and Misfit Wearable’s $40 million Series C led by GGV Capital....

Proably the best way to discover Google Glass : renting one at the Velasquez Exhibition in Paris

Proably the best way to discover Google Glass : renting one at the Velasquez Exhibition in Paris | Wearable computing, wearable connected objects | Scoop.it

April 3, 2015 by Corine B.

For the first time in history, museumgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy a completely new experience using Google Glass, during the Velázquez exhibition at the Grand Palais, in Paris.

 

From PetitWeb : En plus des traditionnels audio-guides, les visiteurs de l’exposition Velazquez au Grand Palais peuvent utiliser des Google Glass, sur réservation à 11h et 17h, pour 8€. L’intérêt ? Pouvoir comparer des œuvres liées à celles exposées ou pointer des détails à observer. Le dispositif a été mis en place par GuidiGO, l’un des quelques "certified partners" des Google Glass dans le monde, après un premier test pendant l’exposition Niki de Saint Phalle. L’exposition Picasso, à l’automne, devrait aussi proposer ce service.

Therese Torris's insight:

A wonderful Exhibition at the Grand Palais.
There probably is no better way to discover Google glass than admiring Velasquez. One word of warning, though the Picture represented on the ad above, Velasquez's most famous painting is NOT exhibited there (but at the Prado)
