Sure, I have had some parlor trick fun with Necomimi Brainwave Sensing Cat Ears, but brainwave tech is the next forefront of digital health. Case in point is Phillips and Accenture’s co-development of a brainwave sensing headgear that will enable ALS patients to have a more autonomous quality of life. This is so inspiring!

Looking Glass Into The Future
To better understand the future of Google Glass, I recently interviewed Dave Lorenzini, a pioneer in geospatial and augmented reality industries.

Nice parlor tricks, but how will Glass increase productivity in my day?
Sun Exposure Bling
This week at CES, Netatmo launched their JUNE bracelet and corresponding app. To help prevent premature skin aging from damaging UV rays, this is your very own “personalized sun protection coach”. This stylish accessory comes in shiny silver or gold and measures sun exposure real-time. The app can then monitor and report overall sun exposure. Simple and unobtrusive, you feel good wearing this jewelry.
