There’s a thought-provoking list of eight concepts for wearable tech on the AITechTrends tumblr. We’re not wild about all of them — a couple of them seem to reinforce the idea that Girls Think Tech Is Icky — but a couple are neat.
One idea, unsurprisingly out of China, is for a pollution mask that also gathers data and sends it to a crowd-sourced map. Kind of like Waze for air.
Another is a battery backup for your phone, which only releases power in proportion to your activity level. A couple promise to help guide you through trips — either adventures like a pub crawl or a daily subway commute.
Not a lot of detail, but some ideas worth pondering.
