Today's Headlines

Future of wearable tech will depend on certain trend shifts

There's no denying that one of the hottest emerging sectors in healthcare is wearable technology and several wearable health monitoring devices have been touted on various holiday gift guides that have been making their way around cyberspace. But findings from a consumer behavior study released in August by Endeavour Partners (Cambridge, Massachusetts) suggest an uncertain future for smart wearable devices.

Google Glass will be a game changer - sink or swim

My first exposure to Google Glass was in the summer of 2013, when the Medical Device Daily and BioWorld Today staff were given a chance to demo the technology at the Thomson Reuters Atlanta office. My first reaction to Glass, was that this was something straight out of those old Dragon Ball Z cartoons that I use to watch when I was in college. (MDD Perspectives)

Google faces potential challenges, roadblocks in getting Glass adopted

When Jay Zuerndorfer, a student researcher at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta) received the opportunity to develop an application for Google Glass it was like a dream come true. Zuerndorfer and a research team from Georgia Tech were able to create speech-to-text software for Google Glass that helps hard-of-hearing users with everyday conversations. A hard-of-hearing person wears Glass while a second person speaks directly into a smart phone.
