  • Token Smart Ring Coming Soon (Video)

    Token Smart Ring Coming Soon (Video)

    I just rewatched Minority Report last night, which means I’m newly terrified of the future’s encroaching surveillance state (which may already be here by most objective standards). Still, the convenience that is purportedly offered by the Token smart ring seems pretty appealing. Token is a smart ring that is designed to be worn by the […]

    If you see a teen or two walking around your neighborhood wearing huge, cartoon-like sunglasses, don’t be alarmed: They’re just Snapchat Spectacles.

  • Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket (Video)

    Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket (Video)

    The rise of wearable technology means a denim jacket can be “smart” in both senses of the term, which definitely applies to the Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket, which combines the timeless, rugged style of Levi’s with the smart technology of Google. As its somewhat cumbersome full name suggests, the Levi’s Commuter […]

  • Shock Clock: Wake Up Without an Alarm Clock Blast

    Shock Clock: Wake Up Without an Alarm Clock Blast

    There are few sounds more irritating than that of a blaring alarm clock early in the morning, which raises the legitimate question of why so many people willingly choose to wake up that way almost every day. One reason could be a lack of other viable alternatives, which is exactly the space that the Shock […]

  • WHOOP Performance Optimization System

    WHOOP Performance Optimization System

    If you’re interested in going well beyond the usual threshold for personal fitness trackers—if, for instance, you’re actually a professional, or even competitive, athlete—WHOOP Performance Optimization System will allow you to do this, while also letting you “perform better and win more” in the bargain.

  • TipTalk: Listen to Messages by Touching Your Ear

    TipTalk: Listen to Messages by Touching Your Ear

    How’s this for a hypothetical future scenario: You get an alert that someone has committed the unspeakable faux pas of leaving you a voicemail, and to listen to it all you have to do is touch your ear, and the message is actually transmitted through your hand up to your finger and into your ear. […]

  • Gest: Wearable Technology for Hand-Based Computer Control

    Gest: Wearable Technology for Hand-Based Computer Control

    I don’t know this for sure, but I’m reasonably certain that tech companies have been promising gestural computer control technology since about five minutes after Minority Report came out more than 12 years ago. But that bar hasn’t quite been reached, at least until Gest came around. You wear Gest on your hand, and once […]

  • TAG Heuer Connected Watch (Video)

    TAG Heuer Connected Watch (Video)

    TAG Heuer isn’t the first watch brand to try to combine smartwatch functionality with old-fashioned style, but their new entry in this timepiece sub-genre might be the best. It’s the TAG Heuer Connected Watch. The TAG Heuer Connected Watch looks to all outward appearances like a TAG Heuer Carrera, but it’s running Android Wear under […]

  • Chronos Fitness Tracker Fits On the Back of Your Watch

    Chronos Fitness Tracker Fits On the Back of Your Watch

    Fitness trackers are great and all, but to be honest it’s a pretty big investment of wrist real estate to strap some other device to your arm in addition to your watch (assuming that you wear a watch, a necessary assumption for this product to be worthwhile). Now, there’s a way for you to get […]
