  Innovation in Wearable Technology By K.H.Mustafa –  www.avenir-labs.com (Hyderabad –  India) Wearable technology is thought to be the latest trend sweeping the digital world. Today it is one of the key technology for innovation and for many it might seem that wearable technology is a fairly new concept but it has a very long history. What is wearable technology? Wearable technology is a category of technology devices that can be worn by a consumer, it can be the gadgets or the clothes or anything what we wear on ourselves, it varies from the watch we wear to the jacket, bracelet, lockets etc. The new age of wearables are laden with smart sensors, and make use of a web connection, usually using Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to your smartphone. They use these sensors to connect you as a person, and help you to achieve goals such as staying fit, active, losing weight or being more organised. Wearable technology down the history: 1268-89:   Eyeglasses  starts with their invention, believed to be between 1268 and 1289 in Italy. The inventor is unknown. The earliest eyeglasses were worn by monks and scholars. They were held in front of the eyes or balanced on the nose. Before the invention  of convex lenses the short sighted people used precious stones like emerald in order to see. 1505-1510:   Nuremberg egg  was one of the first portable timekeeping device which can be worn around the neck, it was produced in Nuremberg. Their production was made possible by the miniaturisation of the torsion pendulum and coil spring mechanism by Nuremberg clockmaker Peter Henlein. Though it was inaccurate these portable watches were a novelty and status symbol in 16 th  century Europe. 1600: Abacus Ring - In 17 th  century one pioneering designer in China created a functioning smart ring Called as  Abacus ring and was used during the Qing Dynasty to help traders. The Ring features a 1.2cm long, 0.7cm wide abacus that sits on the finger. The ring's abacus has seven rods with seven beads on each rod. Due to its size, the beads can only be moved using small tools such as pins.    1849 ’ s:  The Bonafide Ventilating Hat  , invented by John Fuller & Co. in 1849 in the Victorian era, was designed to stop gentlemen's heads overheating while wearing top hats, a big problem at the time. 1907:   Pigeon camera  used for aerial photography was invented in 1907 by the German apothecary Julius Neubronner, who also used pigeons to deliver medications.  A homing pigeon was fitted with an aluminium breast harness to which a lightweight time-delayed miniature camera could be attached. Battlefield tests in the First World War using this camera to capture aerial photographs of the enemy provided encouraging results.  96’s:   Roulette shoe  - Edward Thorp and Claude Shannon, two MIT mathematics professors, designed and constructed the worlds first wearable computer.  Their successful and revolutionary pocket-size endeavour, however, took place in the early 1960s –  back when computers were the size of rooms.  Thorps and Shannons invention consisted of a pair of devices: one concealed in a shoe and another placed inside a cigarette pack. This duo of devices aided the mathematicians in successfully predicting the outcome of a game of roulette. 1963: T.V Glasses:  A pioneer in modern science fiction Hugo Gernsback thought that in the future traditional TV sets would be abandoned in favour of TV Glasses, a small portable TV strapped to the head. 1975: Pulsar calculator watches –  Hamilton Watch Company introduces the first calculator watch. It was the first modern bit of wearable tech. It was launched in 1975, and were available in gold and stainless steel. Case made in Switzerland and electronics module made in U.S.A by Time Computer Inc.
