The 2016 Wearable Technology Show opens its doors tomorrow (March 15th) for a two-day event at London’s ExCeL.
Now in its third year, WTS 2016 is the largest show for wearables, smart technology and IoT.
Here, we round up all the global launches taking place at the show:
MyZone will be unveiling its brand new innovative app and a smart clothing range, set to take wearable fitness tech to the next level. Founder Dave Wright also has a keynote speech scheduled for 10.30am on March 16th on the Performance Track.
ARLOOPA XINECT SDK
Arloopa will showcase its new “XINECT SDK” platform, which is tailored for game and Kinect developers to enable them create their own applications allowing to augment the real world with virtual objects and avatars. It will offer the end-users innovative and rich content of interactive experience inside the AR/Kinect environment. It will also launch VR titles at the show.
The new iSocket 3G will also be launching globally at the show. It is the world’s first 3G power outage and temperature monitoring device.
ARTIFACT VR SUPPORT
Artifact is adding VR support to its content delivery platform. This allows them to deliver immersive virtual reality experiences via the cloud in the same way they currently deliver augmented reality. This will be shown for the first time at WTS.
WALK WITH PATH
Walk With Path is developing products to reduce the risk of falls and improve mobility.
ANYLINE MOBILE TEXT RECOGNITION
Anyline is going to introduce and showcase dynamic Mobile Text Recognition SDK developer toolkit compatible with smartglasses – especially with Epson Moverio Pro – for the first time. It currently also is the only provider for text recognition on smartglasses and already integrates with AR technologies like wikitude. This way, object and text recognition can be used together for the first time.
IoTool – the smartphone Internet of Things (IoT) SaaS platform for professors, researchers, lab teams and students – helps the learning, teaching and research process without complicated and expensive equipment, only a smartphone, to contribute to a fast evolving IoT World.
We recently caught up with John Weir, COO and event director of the Wearable Technology Show, to find out if there’s really a place for wearables in indie PC stores, how the show has changed for this year, and how popular wearables are in the UK. Check out the full interview with John Weir here.
