The Secret to Smartwatch Success is Non-tech Firms

The Secret to Smartwatch Success is Non-tech Firms

Smartwatches will be everywhere this year. With Google announcing Android Wear and companies already showing off devices at CES and Mobile World Congress, it won’t be long before a slew of smartwatches are sitting on store shelves.

Of course, smartwatches are already available. In fact, several companies, from Samsung to Pebble, have offered their interpretation of wrist-worn wearables. The trouble for those firms, however, is that so far, those products haven’t taken off. And it’s unclear whether even Android Wear could go a long way in pushing smartwatches onto more wrists.

Intel talks wearables: Fashion forward, tech behind

Intel talks wearables: Fashion forward, tech behind

Intel isn't leaving its wearables push to chance, looking to the world of fashion in order to do what its executives claim nothing else in the segment has managed: build an emotional relationship without compromise with the wearer. "Today the smart wearables we see on the market are very much led by technology companies," Ayse Ildeniz, VP for business development and strategy in Intel's New Devices Group said today during a CES 2014 roundtable. "Whereas, the things we wear are very personally-led: we somehow get very attached to them." To try to build that emotional stickiness, Intel is being very clear on its limits: unlike the do-everything approaches of Samsung, Pebble, and others, it's going to focus on the chips and leave the rest to the fashionistas.

3D printing gets squishy with new materials from Materialise and Shapeways

3D printing gets squishy with new materials from Materialise and Shapeways

Two different groups have announced their own unique kind of 3D printing material today, one of them from Materialise, the other from Shapeways. While the Materialise material is a bit more of a bendable material the company suggests could be made into such objects as purses and flexible piggy banks, Shapeways material is much more of a "squishy" sort of situation. While the difference between the two may seen slight to those who've not had the chance to experience either, we can't stop our brains from pouring out the possibilities - squishy, squishy possibilities.

Google Glass team talks hardware principles: Lightness, Simplicity, Scalability

As a sort of a "Part 2" or even "Part 3" of the Glass chat series SlashGear has appearing this week and last, today's words with Google Glass' lead industrial designer Isabelle Olsson lend some insight on the device's road to final hardware. Speaking on how the original Glass prototypes eventually became the device you see today, Ollson shared three principles that allowed the team to solidify their process.

Google Glass: the Feminine Fashion Concern

Google Glass: the Feminine Fashion Concern

If you've seen the photo shoots that've come out thus far for Google's Project Glass, you know good and well that they've taken just as many photos of the device on the heads of women as they have of men. The idea that the device will not be as appealing to the feminine side of the equation here is about more than just the idea that women will or will not want to wear the first wave of Glass as it appears on the market, but according to a couple of sources we've had a peek at this week, there does seem to be some concern that only the distinctly male amongst us will want to go "wearable" with Google in 2013.

Why Google Glass is destined for Hyper-Reality TV

Why Google Glass is destined for Hyper-Reality TV

A rather interesting video has come out this week with New York Fashion Week playing host to Google Glass technology, the ultimate product being an all-Glass shot video on the runway with designer Diane von Furstenberg. What this film "DVF Through Glass" shows us is a very real vision - one we've seen a few times before, in different formats - of what it feels like to be the subject of the film rather than watching it. Watch as you become the model walking through the dressing room and you'll see and experience Google Glass in what we thus far are understanding the project to be all about - ramming the whole world into the head of one single subject.

3D-printed bikini proves they’ve thought of everything

3D-printed bikini proves they’ve thought of everything

Revealing swimwear isn't usually the topic of conversation at RAPID, an annual trade show for the market of "additive manufacturing." The industrial tech show is usually more focused on manufacturing processes and how to reduce bottlenecks in large-scale plants. If you see someone in a bikini, you're probably at the wrong show. At least, we could safely say that about past years.
