Jins Meme Sensory Glasses Alerts You When You’re Too Tired to Drive

Jins Meme

Most wearable tech focuses on the external and social aspect of things. For instance, Google Glass comes with an impressive facial recognition system that could let you identify and look people up while you’re literally looking at them. And that’s fine, if you want to spend most of your time wearing smart glasses that let you do more with what you’re seeing.

But if you want to start looking within, then you might want to check out the Jins Meme sensory glasses. These smart specs make use of electro oculography, which is the process of sensing electrical potentials vie eye movement, thanks to its six-axis acceleration sensor. It also has three additional sensors on the frame on the touch points of the wearer’s face in order to detect and monitor changes in body physics.

Do you misplace stuff and lose things like there’s no tomorrow?

CES 2014: Razer Nabu Smartwatch is Also a Fitness Tracker

Nabu Smart Fitness Band

 

There seems to be a huge influx of wearable tech on CES this year. The latest of these is Razer’s Nabu, which is a smartwatch-slash-fitness band that gives you the best of both worlds. As Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan explains, the Nabu is a “cross between a smartwatch and a fitness band,” adding that its “a wearable device focused on helping [people] live smarter.”

The Nabu comes with two displays: one which displays a watch face, and another which displays notifications from your smartphone, such as calls or messages. The latter display also shows fitness stats and wellness-related data, such as the number of steps walked and distance traveled.

Razer’s Nabu is currently available to developers for only $49. No word yet on the official release of the device for consumers.

CES 2014: Movea G-Series Fitness Tracker

Movea G-Series

If you still haven’t made up your mind on the fitness trackers that are currently available in the market, then you might want to check out the latest offering from Movea. The G-Series is a sleek and minimalist wristband that monitors the distance and number of steps you’ve walked or run, as well as the calories you’ve burned for a particular workout. Unlike most trackers, though, it also takes note of your vitals during “non-activities” like when you’re sitting or sleeping.

Movea boasts that the G-Series has the lowest error rates when it comes to counting steps of 1.7%, which is substantially lower than the error rates of competing devices. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t provided any details on its pricing or availability yet.

Wellograph

Wellograph takes fitness to a totally different level with their new fitness watch. Called the Wellograph, it’s an activity tracker, heart rate monitor, and running watch in one. It’s got a built-in accelerometer and sensor on the underside that does all the tracking while you’ve got it on. It looks fancy and better than most other smart watches, so you’ll actually want to wear it all the time (which is good, because you’ll be able to get the most out of it if you keep it on 24/7).

When you want to check out how you’re doing, the Wellograph brings up your stats and displays them in easy-to-process graphs on its 1.26-inch monochrome display.
