BeBop Sensors Offers Latest In Smart Technology W/ Wireless Gloves

Smart technology is a major commodity right now. From window tints to flat-screen televisions, nearly everything in an average home can now be imbued with technology that responds to your voice or touch; BeBop Sensors knows this very well. This advanced technology transforms the most mundane materials into objects that respond to the user’s desires almost automatically.

The latest industry to go smart is one that everyone utilizes every day: the textile industry. Internationally, more than 14.3 million tons of American textiles are donated to help clothe people in need. Yet, now, something as seemingly commonplace as textiles are increasingly turning into pieces of advanced wearable technology.

Smart fabrics have the ability to comprehend a variety of physical factors including motion, force, weight, and location.

They’re a step up from popular wearable tech — like Apple watches — that track data such as your heart rate and the number of steps you take per day. Smart technology like this has already been lauded as a way to better prevent conditions like heart disease, which is the number one cause of death in the United States. With smart fabrics, you don’t even have to think about putting on a watch every day; the potentially life-saving sensors are embedded right into the fabric of the clothes.

BeBop Sensors is a leader in the world of smart fabric sensor technology. The innovative company has already shipped over two million wearable smart fabric sensors. Last year, BeBop Sensors launched the Forte Wireless Gloves. These gloves incorporate haptics and highly-accurate rapid sensing to be used in a variety of applications. These applications include virtual reality, design, gaming, and more.

The flexible sensors embedded in the fabric design allow the Forte gloves to track more of the wearer’s hands than other virtual reality gloves on the market. With more tracking comes more accuracy, making the gloves a useful tool for more than simple gaming. Architects have even been using the gloves to assemble VR models of their buildings. This gives architects a much better idea of how their designs will look when constructed in real life.

BeBop Sensor’s unique product has already been collecting accolades. TIME Magazine awarded the Forte Wireless Gloves with the Best Inventions 2018 Award. According to TIME, the gloves are a game-changer for creative professionals everywhere because they imbue users with digital hands. The ability to grab and manipulate digital objects as if they were actually real is unlike any other technology on the market, making the gloves worthy of the award.

Founder and CEO of BeBop Sensors Keith McMillen said that the company was honored to receive the award. McMillen recognizes the importance of helping the user blend with a VR environment so accurately that they can feel the texture of different digital surfaces. Whether you’re looking to utilize the gloves to create incredibly accurate designs or you want to have a gaming experience like no other, this smart fabric can help you get there.

LogicInk UV Day Tattoo: Know When You’ve Had Enough Sun Exposure

You don’t need to step outside to realize we are experiencing an incredible heatwave. So dangerous that a heat index warning has been issued, outdoor events have been canceled and people are encouraged to stay indoors until it’s over. While days like this are few and we heed the warnings, on a typical day, you may not realize just how much sun exposure you’re getting. Did you know there are an estimated 4.3 million cases of BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) diagnosed in the U.S. each year and there’s no sign of that slowing down? It’s way past the time we need to know about the harmful effects of UV overexposure. Here’s a question to yourselves, how do you know when you’ve had enough sun exposure for the day? With the LogicInk UV day tattoo, you can. It’s the future of health wearables.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

LogicInk UV is designed to measure the cumulative effect of one day in the sun. The outer circle and bar turn fully pink when you reach the daily UV limit for sensitive skin; this is based on data from the World Health Organization. The inner circle and dot show the current UV exposure in real-time. In the above photo, you will see a pink spot; this is the measurement of sun exposure I had prior to applying the LogicInk. I had not yet gone back into the sun while wearing it. As you can see, it’s already letting me know how much sun exposure I’ve had. You’ll also notice the inner circle has no color, indicating I’m not currently exposed to the sun as I was indoors.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

Upon venturing outside, you’ll notice the inner circle has now turned pink, showing my real-time, full exposure to the sun. As previously stated, the LogicInk UV day tattoo signals when you’ve had enough sun for the day. Applied to your skin like a temporary tattoo, the waterproof adhesive is gentle on the skin, yet resilient enough to last in the ocean or pool. LogicInk UV is even compatible with sunscreen; just apply the LogicInk UV on clean, dry skin, then apply sunscreen over your skin and on LogicInk.  The sunscreen is designed to expire faster from LogicInk’s surface than it does on your skin. This is a helpful early warning to reapply sunscreen or get some shade.

While you don’t need a smartphone to see your UV exposure status, there is an optional mobile app that lets you scan your LogicInk “tattoo” to track UV exposure patterns over longer periods of time. LogicInk UV day tattoos are available in single or on subscription-based purchases. Get 10 for $39.00 as a single purchase or 15 for $29/month, and 30 for $79.00 if you subscribe.

GOQii Life | More Than Just a Fitness Tracker

For the past few months, we’ve been upping our fitness level and overall healthier lifestyle with the combination of a fantastic advanced wearable technology device, the world’s leading experts, a great personal coach (hey Neha) that is not only an expert in the field of fitness and nutrition but are themselves are part of the program, and some Karma (more on that later) that allows you to #BetheForce for good. For the past few months, we’ve been living the GOQii Life. The GOQii Fitness Band is not just another fitness tracker; while other fitness bands just measure your activity and provide you with the information, GOQii Life is a community of health and wellness coaches advising and encouraging you, an app that helps you develop healthy physical activity, nutrition, sleep and stress management habits, as well as using your Karma points to help others.

The GOQii Fitness Bands are made out of silicone, are water-resistant (not waterproof  so no swimming), but it will resist rain, sweat, shower and a splash of water. The straps are adjustable and changeable to any of the cool colors – Passion Red, Power Black and Persistence Red+Black – with more color options coming soon. The GOQii Core can connect to your computer or device via Bluetooth and will automatically sync every time it is within 10-15 ft of your smartphone. Not only is your information updated on your end, your GOQii Coach is also automatically given your activity, which allows them to better advise and applaud you (it’s a bit like working out with a friend).

While other bands concentrate on your body, GOQii aims to bring happiness to your body, mind and soul. Our coach, Neha, has been our cheerleader, fitness trainer, and adviser on everything from our fitness routine, sleep patterns (we’re happy with anyone who tells us we need to take a nap during the day), eating habits, and mental well-being, with daily tips and encouragements. The GOQii Band does an amazingly precise job of measuring your Activity and Sleep. In the Active mode, it focuses on measuring steps, calories burnt, distance traveled, activity time and Karma points. In the Sleep mode, it measures time slept and quality of sleep. Additionally the GOQii Band will also display time and an envelope symbol when you have a message from your Coach.

If you feel so inclined, the GOQii app gives you the ability to share your updates via social media, interact with other GOQii Life users, and donate your karma points to great causes. You may be thinking, what exactly are Karma points. As we previously stated (and as you can see in the photo above), it’s a way to do good by help great charitable organizations. Essentially you earn points based on the number of steps you take in a day, these points can then be donated to any charity organization linked in the GOQii app. It gives you a great sense of happiness to know that just by walking, not only are you heading towards a healthier lifestyle, but you’re also helping people in need. In other words, you do good and feel good, and as GOQii says #BetheForce. What’s better than that?

Triple Threat Tech | Samsung Launches Galaxy Gear, Galaxy Note 3 & Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition

Samsung continues to innovate the way we interact with our mobile devices by introducing three devices you didn’t know you needed – Galaxy Gear, Galaxy Note 3, & Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition. The first wearable smartphone, Galaxy Gear™ is a tech and sci-fi fanatic’s dream come true, a wrist communicator. Anyone who’s been a fan of Dick Tracy, Transformers, Star Trek, Knight Rider, or Power Rangers has fantasized about owning a wrist communicator of their very own and now thanks to Samsung, they have seen their childhood dream come true with the Samsung Galaxy Gear.

The Galaxy Gear features a 1.63-inch 320×320-pixel, super AMOLED screen surrounded by a modern metal frame, is powered by an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM and includes a 1.9-megapixel camera embedded into the rubberized watchband (which is available in six different colors, including my favorite, a Rosegold metal frame with a white band. With the Galaxy Gear, users can control their music, get discreet notifications of incoming calls, messages, and more in real time, hands-free calling directly from the Gear, S Voice™ access and so much more. Other features include Smart Lock (automatically unlock or lock Galaxy Note 3 with Galaxy Gear if it is more than 1.5 meters away from the smartphone), Find My Device (use your Galaxy Gear to locate Galaxy Note 3 and vice versa), Memographer, Voice Memo, approximately 70 optimized apps such as MyFitnessPal and RunKeeperis to track your nutrition and exercise, Pinterest, Evernote, etc. For now the Galaxy Gear can only be used with the Galaxy Note 3 but upcoming software update will allow you to pair it with the Galaxy S4 and Note 2.

And speaking of the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung continues to expand on the popularity of it’s range of Note devices with their Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a wider, full HD Super AMOLED display (5.7inch), a slimmer (8.3mm) and lighter (168g) overall design with a soft and textured-touch back cover, delicate stitching and serration pattern on the side; it features a faster and more powerful performance (boasting the largest 3GB RAM) with a longer lasting (3,200mAh) battery.

With the S Pen, you van accomplish everyday tasks with just one click. Samsung reinvents and modernizes the classic note-taking experience with Air Command (removes the need to toggle between screens, memorize commands or look up different menus), Action Memo (convert a handwritten note to formatted content, initiate a call, add to contacts, look up an address on a map, search the web, save a task to a to-do list), Screen Write (captures the full screen image of the current page, write comments and additional information onto the captured image), S Finder (expansively search for any content on the device), Pen Window (draw sketches, write notes, and open a small application window for a true multitasking experience), Drag and Drop (easily drag and drop content such as a text or image from one window), along with the features described in the Galaxy Gear and so much more.

With the success of the the integration of S Pen™ in last’s year’s Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung introduces improved S Pen capabilities, vibrant display and an updated Multi-Window functionality with the new The Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 Edition

Boasting a large, Super Clear LCD display (the 2,560 x 1,600 pixel WQXGA display contains over 4 million pixels) with brighter colors and more lifelike graphics, the Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition changes how you use your tablet. Enhanced multitasking allows you to seamlessly use two different apps side-by-side and easily drag and drop content from one window to another. The updated S Pen features several shortcuts and productivity tools and just like the Galaxy Note 3, features Air Command, Action Memo, Screen Write, S Finder, Pen Window, S Note and Scrapbooker (the S Pen lets you organize content you find interesting and places it into individualized scrapbooks). Samsung introduces a new magazine-style user interface called My Magazine that allows you to organize the latest news, social feeds and localized content in an easy-to-use, personalized dashboard.
