Will.i.am is making another smartwatch, this time with voice recognition

Music and fashion mogul Will.i.am has made several previous attempts at developing tech products, including wearables and a camera-like case for the iPhone.

Virgin Galactic, Y-3 team up for hip-looking space travel apparel

The last few years have been kind to the space science and industry, putting it back on the map as one of the "cool" things in life.

And it is a move that will definitely inspire traditional luxury watch makers to jump on the smartwatch train, which, in turn, will help validate the wearable device industry.
