#CES and wearables and thoughts

The social media is booming with great stuff on wearable technology gadgets after the consumer electronic goods trade show CES in Las Vegas opened this week. From button sized computers from Intel to wearable retail trends from SlideShare.

VenturesBeat News editor @HarrisonWeber took an image of every wearable he tried during one day at the show.

The technological development opens 1000 of new possibilities. Intel’s tiny computer “Curie” is a game changer for wearable technology, when it come to personal devices and the handling of the battery capacity. One of the issues is to make tactile user interfaces, which is the interest of my research. How can you make a piece of cloth receiving digital information?

The featured image, is a collage I made from the work of several textile artists, that I was inspired of during my MA course in Design Health & Well-being at Kingston University 2011/2012. The ambition of the project is to combine Neuro-Rehabilitation with Sensory design.

I am still in the pre-phase of framing an Industrial PhD collaboration, together with Design School Kolding and Hospital Littlebelt, on combining wearable technology with Neuro-rehabilitation. I focus on tactile user interface for improving the rehabilitation experience, to create a personal relation between an object and a user with special needs.

Any other thoughts that might be relevant – please let me know!
