It’s a system of FSR’s embedded in an innersole with bluetooth communication to an Android app and even and inductive charger so you never have to remove the innersoles to charge. This company plans to use their technology as an assistive healthcare device for people with gait abnormalities.
This is product is a great initial execution of the Internet Of Everything brainstorming winners idea.
I enjoyed seeing their first prototype- it looks so much like my Tune Taps project for Biomechanics a few semesters ago. 🙂
Fitbit for your newborn. Alerts parents if child has turned on it’s stomach, and records activity. Plus, it’s comes with 2 adorable onesies!
These aquatic glasses measure pulse using a small sensor on the temple then display the heart rate inside the goggles in real time.
Mother is a hub for a series of connected pill shaped accelerometers. An app collects data and can be set for alerts. My question is: If the hub wasn’t a hub, would you want something that looked like Mother in your house?
Ready for this? This team solved the problem of a bulky dog tracker by removing the heavy electronics and placing them in a single adorable (dog house!) hub. The hub serves the data to the internet, and all the dog wears is a treat sized transmitter on it’s collar. It’s even light enough for my 9 lb dog, Wozzy!

Each pendent is called a Zazzi, displaying an image of the wearers choice. Or, her friend can share an image for her Zazzi to display, so they can match like friendship bracelets. The system is modular, allowing one Zazzi to be affixed to a ring, bracelet or necklace.
I like this idea of on the fly- customizable jewelry. This product is in development and will become smaller sleeker, and hopefully more elegant. Perhaps tech can create an e-paper display that is transparent and can be stretched over the silver to display images like the automatic window shades we saw today!
This product is near and dear to my heart because I totally believe in it’s vision. However, It’s teaching me a valuable lesson: don’t show the prototype if it’s not close. I can envision a piece of elegant jewelry with a changeable digital design, but after seeing this box on a wrist, it must be hard for investors and customers to stay inspired by it. I would love to see a concept drawing of the vision of this piece.
