Wearable Tech

by Princess Pamalamadingdong


        You want to go on a nice relaxing run, but you don’t know what is the shortest track.  WHAT WILL YOU DO? Get the Google Glasses!  In this report you will read about the history of the wearables like Google Glasses.  For example, Steve Mann took 20 years to make the Google Glasses “perfect”. Next, you will read about what some wearables can do, like play lots of music, give directions and SO MUCH MORE!  Finally, you will read about Interesting Facts. I’ll bet you didn’t know Basis Band can sync to your phone.

History

        Read about Steve Mann!!- the man who invented the first wearable . According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Mann, he has made the Digital Eye Glass, HDR, Scratch input and much, much more. He started to make the Digital Eye Glass in 1980 and made the “final” glasses in 2000. I like this because he worked so hard to get the Digital Eye Glasses up and running, and all that hard work paid off!!

What It Does

Do you want to know what Google Glasses does? READ THIS PARAGRAPH. According to http://www.google.com/glass/start/what-it-does/,  Google Glass can do ALOT! Like send a message, play music off google play, give navigation, find golf course, plus much, much, more.  So…. if you can’t find and golf course you and get directions to it! I like this because you can do so much with just some glasses.

Interesting Facts

Here is some popular wearables…. If you were wondering. According to Brian Bennet and Scott Stein, some popular wearables are: Jawbone UP24, Misfit Shine, and Basis Band. The Jawbone UP24 helps you in exercising and tracks steps, calories and sleep. The Misfit Shine helps you in fitness and it just look like normal jewelry, it’s waterproof so you and swim with it! Finally the Basis Band helps you in fitness too, but it can sync to your iPhone and or Android.   I think this is AWESOME because these three are selling cheep on http://www.cnet.com/products/basis-band/ but, they do so much!
