We all experience noises that we wish we could get rid of. Whether it involves living next to a construction site or working in a noisy office where you are trying to concentrate there are times where it would be great to fully cancel out these noises. IQBuds are the answer to this problem. These remarkable earbuds come equipped with noise-cancellation technology. Combined with Bluetooth, these earbuds also allow the user to connect to a smartphone, allowing them to answer phone calls and start or stop audio with a simple tap to the earbud.
7. LumiWave Infrared Light Therapy Device
With so much wearable technology in existence, it is no surprise that some of it is currently being used by athletes at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. One of these items is this infrared light therapy device. It beams infrared light into the bodies tissue using its pods. It provides short term pain relief by increasing blood flow and is being taken advantage of by the U.S. gymnastics team. The general public can pre order this astounding device for $449.
This small strap doesn’t look like much at first, but it is a remarkable piece of wearable technology that could change the way that people deal with chronic pain. All that you have to do is wrap the strap around whatever limb you are experiencing pain in. From there the strap stimulates the nerves of the affected area, tricking the brain into releasing chemicals that relieve the pain. It is an amazing alternative to taking pain relieving pills that can be extremely addictive and ultimately not very good for you.
Technology is becoming sleeker and more functional by the day. One way to think of technology is this; today is the least technologically advanced day of your life. New concepts are being introduced on a daily basis and technology is only moving forward. Whether it be a helmet that you can attach cameras to to create 360 degree imagery or virtual reality technology that can put you in the middle of any setting you wish, you just never know what will come out next, and that is the most exciting part of the age we are privileged enough to live in.
4. Hexoskin Smart Shirt
At first glance this may appear to be nothing more than a sleekly designed workout shirt. But of course if it is on this list you know there is something new age and innovative to it. This shirt has a lot of the same functions as a smartwatch. It can track your heart rate variability which enables the user to avoid overtraining. The shirt also tracks your breathing rate, teaching the user how to best control their breathing which can greatly increase performance. I’m not sure how comfortable it would be to sleep in, but if it is comfortable it is a great sleep tracking device. It measures your resting heart and breathing rates as well as your sleep positions.
Not only is this an amazing and innovative piece of technology, but it is also one that can seriously improve the lives of blind and deaf people. It takes sounds from the environment and, through your smartphone, converts them into patterns of vibration on the skin of your back. Your brain gathers this information and figures out how to interpret it. In tests it has enabled blind people to conquer obstacle courses and it can be a much cheaper alternative to a cochlear implant for the deaf. It is a project that is still in the development stages, but it should be a hit whenever it comes out.
2. Oculus Rift
A list of wearable tech gadgets would be incomplete without a virtual reality headset, and for this countdown I have chosen the Oculus Rift. The first prototype of this headset was developed by Palmer Luckey in 2011 when he was only 18 years old. He built it in in his parents garage in Long Beach, California. It was first introduced to the world at the E3 convention in June of 2012 and has only grown since. Facebook purchased the company in March of 2014 for a staggering $2 billion. The headset was officially released to the public for the first time on March 28, 2016.
1. Cicret Bracelet
This is an amazing, futuristic piece of technology. It is a bracelet that shines a light on the wearers arm, allowing the user to turn their skin into a touchscreen. Tiny sensors allow it to pick up the movement of your fingers so that it knows when you are trying to tap or swipe the screen on your skin. It is advertised as being like a tablet, but on your skin and it still isn’t available for consumers. The company is currently trying to raise money so that they can start mass producing the bracelet.
