How wearable technology could transform business #WearableWednesday

How wearable technology could transform business” on BBC Business:

“Imagine the man fixing the boiler. He lying under a heavy device and he needs his hands, but he can still be in a computing environment.

“Take a sales person walking into a client’s office; they might be able to access instant information in front of their eyes. ‘What was the last order this company placed? Are they happy with us?’ Even ‘when was the client’s last birthday?’ ” he says.

But the applications don’t stop with hi-tech glasses.

“Let’s suppose I’m a manager of a large facility,” Mr Sen continues.

“As I walk around, I have something in my shoe and as I pass certain devices that could read whether a device is fine and if it isn’t it will tell me – perhaps by buzzing.”

However, he denies that the technology, particularly in cases like that of the salesman, will simply facilitate less preparation and even laziness.

“I’m not saying we should dumb down the individual but instead give them the kit to access information when they want to,” he says.

“This is about improving our ability to engage with our surroundings.”

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
