Forget high-end clothes. This season’s hot fashion trend is wearable tech – on display in force at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Mimo Monitor onesie incorporates sensors that track a baby’s breathing, temperature and position. “The sensor is our new respiratory sensor,” Mimo Co-Founder Carson Darling said in an interview with CBS News content partner CNET, “It actually looks at the rise and fall of the chest.”
The onesie is even machine washable.
Casio’s Sports Gear aims to be a standout among the many smartwatches on display. The versatile device lets you change the button functions depending on what you’re doing. If you’re listening to music for example, the buttons can skip tracks. If you’re on a run, the buttons can start and stop your workout.
There’s also a handy “find button” you can press to locate your smartphone.
The Razer Nabu is part fitness tracker, part smartwatch. Its built-in gesture recognition means you can follow someone on Twitter just by shaking their hand.
Wearable gadgets developed by Intel include biometric earbuds that use an optical sensor to measure your heart rate, as well as a smart headset codenamed Jarvis.
“Jarvis is always going to be listening,” explained Danny Cristofano, Intel Tech Evangelist, “[It] can be set to different modes where it can provide data on the fly or will listen to you.”
