Small companions: How wearables change our lives

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/09/2015] They can be seen everywhere: at the wrists, in the ear, clipped to the belt. Wearables are small technical assistants who are built to collect and partially also to analyze data. Some of them collect measurable health data, others "only" count their user’s steps or measure the surrounding UV radiation. The fact is, however, that wearables are en vogue and are used for many different cases.Small companions: How wearables change our lives - Read more
