What Wearable Tech Could Mean for the Classroom
"The 2015 Horizon Report predicted the widespread use of wearables throughout the entire spectrum of modern education. Still, considering our senses are already overloaded with 1s and 0s, reluctance to embrace yet another digital medium is understandable.
However, as this piece will explain, the potential benefits are simply too tremendous to ignore."

Google Glass : Role in Connected Classrooms [#Infographic]
An infographic outlines the possible educational uses for Google’s wearable tech.
An infographic from online-phd-programs.org breaks down the basics of Google's wearable technology and outlines a variety of possible uses, as well as the challenges facing the device’s widespread adoption.
The device has already undergone several changes since its prototype was introduced in 2011, and there are sure to be more in the future — some of which could affect the way we interact in educational environments.

Is Wearable Tech Ready for the Red Carpet?
Wearable technology is undoubtedly the future of consumer electronics, and developers are already starting to recognize that style is just as important as functionality.
The latest video in our Mobile Minute series looks at these new designs, including a Google Glass redesign and the premiere of the Pebble Steel. "As form continues to marry function, wearables are set to hit mainstream," says Interaction Designer Amanda Klohmann.

Ring : wearable input device
"We've seen interactive rings that receive alerts from your smartphone and even rings that will give you the current time in a unique way, but a new ring leapfrogs the rest by acting as a full-on control mechanism."

'Smart' wig navigates by GPS, monitors brainwaves
Are you both bald AND lost? Then the new "SmartWig" from Japan might be just what you need.
The techno-toupe, which can read the wearer's brainwaves and direct them to their destination with onboard GPS, is the latest -- and possibly the wackiest -- addition to the world of wearable computing.

FLORA - Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible
CLICK for Tutorials
Adafruit created the FLORA from scratch after many months of research and we really think we came up with something that will empower some amazing wearable projects.
The FLORA is small (1.75" diameter, weighing 4.4 grams). We wanted the smallest possible board for our wearable platform. In the FLORA family we also have the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules and chainable LED pixels, perfect accessories for the FLORA mainboard

An Experiment in Teaching with Google Glass

An Experiment in Teaching with Google Glass
For the past two months, I've been the only teacher in the world to have Google Glass -- the most highly anticipated (and intensely coveted) technology to emerge in years. How did I get this incredible opportunity? Let me explain . . .
What happened next completely exceeded all expectations. Not only was I selected as a Glass Explorer, but I was given the unique opportunity to teach a live physics lesson from inside the Large Hadron Collider!
Beyond capturing videos, Glass can also be used in Google Hangouts, which are live video conferences similar to Skype.
This opens the possibility for streaming live, first-person, educational content across the world.

Narrative (was called Memoto) : wearable lifelogging camera
http://getnarrative.com/
The Narrative (was called Memoto) camera, a wearable camera able to create a continuous life log for the user.
We at Narrative wanted to find a way to relive more of our lives in the future - and enjoy the present as it happens.
Our search for the ultimate lifelogging device started with gathering people from all walks of life and asking them about their use of pictures and photographing. We let them try our very early prototypes of the camera and listened to their spontaneous thoughts about it.

The Teacher’s Guide To Google Glass
"If you’re as excited as Katie and me about Google Glass, this post is for you. We like to take on the latest technology and see how it fits into education. If it doesn’t, we typically don’t write about it or will mention it in passing.
But the potential for Google Glass in education is just too great. That’s why we thought it would be useful to compile an early-stages ‘Teacher’s Guide to Google Glass’"

Why Digital Clothing Won't Need Batteries

Why Digital Clothing Won't Need Batteries
For wearables to really take off, we’ll need powerful and sophisticated devices that are lightweight, elegant, and small enough to be worn as accessories—or embedded into the fabric of our clothes. But what about the batteries?
Wearable devices are likely to be always on, running in the background to wirelessly send and receive updates, as well as perform more power-sucking tasks like running apps or streaming video. To keep the wearer from having to juice up at an outlet every few hours, manufacturers are going to need to find some smart solutions for powering these devices.

5 Ways Google Glass Can Be Used in Education
Google’s innovative visual technology will have many applications for teaching and learning.
The Glass can be used for a variety of purposes which don’t require any taps or navigation, responding instead to voice commands. It can be used to record videos, share content, take images, and detect objects in front of you and look up related information like directions or maps. The glasses will allow the user to stay connected to an interactive environment featuring online tools all the time.
I see a lot of benefits for students once Google Glass is released publicly in 2014. Here are 5 ways educators and students may be able to leverage the new technology ...

Wearable Computers [Wikipedia Listing]
"Wearable computers, also known as body-borne computers are miniature electronic devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing.
This class of wearable technology has been developed for general or special purpose information technologies and media development. Wearable computers are especially useful for applications that require more complex computational support than just hardware coded logics."
