The smart wearable technology report will help you to find innovations in technology. First, let us understand the challenges and problems associated with hands-free wearable devices.
- Photos taken by the camera has a wide-angle view and therefore, peripheral objects may be captured that can distract from the message that the user wants to communicate.
- Heavy weight of smart glasses prevents the users from using it for long duration.
- Text entry using on-frame touch pad is difficult and inefficient due to narrow input space.
- Using gaze for creating and sharing annotations using gaze tracking in head- mounted display
- Using a thin plastic light guide plate with multi-stage micro mirror promotes total internal reflection. It helps to reduce overall weight and cost.
- R&D efforts have come up with gaze assisted typing (GAT) to overcome the problems of touchpad-based typing.
Thought Provoking Technology Advancements
Fuji Xerox Co Ltd has created a gaze-enhanced annotation. Presently, photos are taken by the camera often have a wide-angle view to match the user’s field of view. Hence photos often capture peripheral objects that can distract from the message that the user wants to communicate. The present disclosure describes a system for creating and sharing
Google has received a patent for a curved light-guide component. It has an input coupler and an output coupler too. To overcome the issue of cost, size, weight, the field of view, and efficiency, the curved light-guided component is used. The display light is guided between the input coupler and the output coupler entirely by total internal reflection.
Each year Signicent provides consultancy to hundreds of organizations to help transform their innovations to value.
Cutting- Edge Technologies in Smart Wearables
Microvision (US) has established PicoP® Scanning Technology. MicroVision Introduces the world’s smallest and lightest display module for Smart Glasses. In the past, smart glasses failed because they were too heavy and bulky. MicroVision’s patented PicoP® Scanning Technology utilizes an ultra-miniature MEMS mirror to scan a modulated laser beam using state-of-the-art control systems.
VUZIX (US) has established Micro-LED technology. The next generation Vuzix Smart Glasses will feature a larger field of view (FOV), advanced waveguide optics, and binocular displays, including 3D, alongside Vuzix’s patent-pending immersive stereo acoustic speakers ideal for privacy, performance, and style.
Futuristic Technology in Smart Wearables
Ben-Gurion Universit (Israel) has a prototype Wearable for Predicting Epileptic Seizures technology. BGU researchers have developed Epiness™, a new, first-of-its-kind device for detecting and predicting epileptic seizures. It is based on proprietary machine-learning algorithms. The smart wearable device can generate an advanced warning about an upcoming seizure that will be sent to a smartphone up to an hour prior to its onset. Epilepsy is a highly pervasive, and at times debilitating neural disease. Up to 30% of patients do not adequately respond to anti-epileptic drugs.
Facebook (US) has a prototype Zoom in Audio technology. Technology is being developed by Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), the research unit. They are creating ever-more sophisticated AR and VR headsets that would let you “zoom in” on and enhance the sounds you want to focus on in a real-life situation. All other distracting sounds will be dimmed.
