Day 1 of Wearable Technology Show 2018 – Geek News Central

Day 1 of Wearable Technology Show 2018 – Geek News Central

It’s the Wearable Technology Show in London, England today and tomorrow, so GNC was in attendance to check out some of the latest developments in the space. I was last here in 2016, so it’s interesting to see what’s changed (and what hasn’t) in the last two years. The event isn’t anything like the size of CES and there are few household names, but there are plenty of entrepreneurs and startups. I’ll be posting full interviews later but for now, here’s a selection from day 1 (and 13,000 steps).

e-textiles were very much in evidence, with sensors and electronics embedding into fabrics by Nottingham Trent University.

There was a working fabric keyboard using silver based yarn from Statex.

Tinker Designs has developed a prototype smart shoe that incorporates artisan craft with modern electronics.

As expected, there were plenty of wrist-worn devices. WITgrip had a prototype wrist mount to hold a bigger screen in a more ergonomic position.

Laevo demonstrated an exoskeleton for workers who repeatedly have to bend over or kneel down. I tried it on and it works as advertised.

Also for workers is the ProGlove which incorporates a barcode scanner on the back of the glove to avoid repetitive picking up and putting down of scanners.

That’s it for now – more tomorrow.
