Woodenshark’s TapTap joins you and a partner at the wrist

TapTap is a wristband that pairs with another TapTap wristband to bring you and a loved one closer together. You tap-tap your TapTap, and your special friend feels a gentle vibration in the paired wristband, wherever in the world the two of you may be. But that's just the Kickstarter bait. The real potential of TapTap lies in its accelerometer and gyroscope in combination with the API. Listen up, developers.

Cartesian The EX1 3D-prints circuit boards for wearables galore

Supposing you were in the market for a prototype of a circuit board here in 2013 - what kind of process would you have to go through to get one?

castAR augmented reality glasses switch to true VR with a clip

castAR augmented reality glasses switch to true VR with a clip

There's a team of creators out in the wild this week showing off a pair of augmented reality / virtual reality glasses called castAR, a pair of glasses that's set to make Star Wars a reality. The inspiration for this wearable piece of technology comes directly from the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, in a scene where the droids are playing a 3D chess game with Chewbacca. In this scene, the pieces for the chess game, (called a Djarik hologame, for you hardcore nerds), are standing projected above the board in 3D - this inspiration pushed the creators of castAR to make a pair of glasses that uses a mix of augmented reality and projection to make a whole new environment for the user.
