Tech Wear

From NPR News:

There’s been a lot of talk about wearable devices being the next big thing in the technology world. It’s easy for the hype to get ahead of the products, but there’s actually some serious innovation going on.

“What we’re gonna see over the next couple years is gonna be extremely exciting,” says Dan Ledger of Endeavor Partners, which consults with the companies that are inventing wearables. “As the technology improves … we’re going to get devices that solve a lot of useful and unique problems for a lot of people out there.”

So, beyond the hype of Google Glass, technology could have very useful applications like tracking someone’s heart rate or blood pressure. You might already be using an app to track your daily exercise or calorie intake.
