Although sometimes they seem unnecessary, the truth is that the rare wearables can often be very useful, or at least fun.
A couple of years ago, the wearable or wearable technology industry was very small, but now, it has grown considerably with products that help you from leading a healthy life, to why not take care of your plants.
Here are the rarest wearables on the market.
The pioneers of wearable technology
It is very important that you know that the first wearable was created by Steve Mann, an engineer professor at the University of Toronto, who is known nothing more and nothing less than as the father of portable technology. And this title was granted thanks to the fact that, in the early 1980s, Mann created a platform consisting of a complete and multifunctional portable computer system, with a head-mounted display.
This device allowed him to move while continuing to carry out personal computer applications. At that moment, he seemed totally crazy. But today, it has been shown that Mann was safer and smarter than many of us.
Massager for the temple
Do you want to relieve that headache, but are you too tired to move your arms? Don't worry, because now a hands-free massager has arrived that will do it for you and his name is Vi-Band. This wonder is a neoprene band with vibration motors, designed to be placed on the pressure points of the head and give you a super relaxing massage Without having to pay for a day of spa!
In addition, you can combine it with a curved neck pillow and you will have the perfect solution for any long-distance flight. As if that were not enough, if you like retro, this band is made for you, since with it you will look with a look as if you were in the 80s.
A wearable that you can use in privacy
Have you ever evaluated your sex life carefully even with graphics? Probably your answer is no. But, if you are a man and would like to know how effective the functions of your member / reproductive system are, an ideal wearable for you, called Lovely, has arrived on the market. This device easy and quick to place, communicates with your smart phone and has a battery that lasts up to 7 hours. Enough for what you need, right?
Lovely to monitor all your intimate movements, and then evaluate your performance, showing you a fairly odd type of bar chart. In addition, I will tell you how many calories you have burned and give you some recommendations of possible postures or maneuvers that you can try to do next time. Without a doubt, Technology has become our best advisor!
A wearable keyboard
You are in a work meeting and you cannot get your phone, but do you need to send a message? Do not worry, because thanks to a new device, situations like this will no longer be a problem. A portable Bluetooth keyboard has arrived on the market that allows you to type messages by moving your fingers on the table or one of your legs so as not to have to take out your cell phone, although to be honest, surely when using it you look like a caffeine addict with little Patience, going through a moment of paranoia, but at least you can send the message.
Tap Strap is an almost imaginary keyboard that allows you to communicate relatively quickly. Although it is important to keep in mind that if some people come to realize how to package your message in the style of Morse Code, they will find it quite funny.
Know how your dog feels
Do you have a dog in your house and do you feel it as part of the family? Are you worried about how your dog feels when he is inside the house or you take him for a walk? Although, unfortunately, your pet still can not speak in your language, at present, there is a camera on the market that is capable of sniffing the emotion of dogs, measuring their cardiac frequency and even taking an automatic photo when the joy of your Pet will tell you.
Unfortunately, the Heartography device was created as a prototype for a Nikon Coolpix ad and is not available for sale. However, after seeing this, we do not doubt that a talented engineer and dog lover dares to launch something similar very soon.
A mask that changes your emotions
Would you like to keep track of your emotions during the day? Now thanks to an ingenious and strange mask you can do it. This soft silicone mask uses 3D printing and was created by a team of designers from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London and Soft Robotics Toolkit from Harvard University.
With it, you will be able to appreciate certain changes of color and patterns, according to the gestures of your face. Although it seems unhelpful and meaningless, we cannot deny that it is a rare, but interesting device.
They won't be able to fool you anymore
At present, a theme among couples that can cause a great fight or even a final break, is to get ahead in seeing those exciting chapters of a series and not wait for your partner to arrive from work. But to avoid such temptations, a couple of engagement rings (the package comes in two units, one for your partner and the other for you) have arrived on the market with NFC technology.
Once you have them in your hands, you must pair them with an application and from that moment, you can only see certain programs selected on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and other streaming services when your partner, provided that both are together or present. A great idea that has not yet been released, but can already be pre-ordered.
A wearable for plants
Who said you needed to be human (or canine) to have a wearable designed for you? Researchers at Iowa State University have developed portable sensors for plants, which allow their producers to measure how their crops use water.
Described as "plant tattoo sensors," the devices use graphene to track how the leaves release water vapor by measuring changes in conductivity. Although they are not yet available to farmers, it is an incredible vision.
