Google may be working on a version of Glass that you might actually wear

Google Glass is far from being a ready-for-primetime commercial product, and the wearable device may undergo several changes before it’s sold in stores. In fact, it appears Google is trying to make Google Glass look less like it currently does – something some people wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing – and more like an actual pair of ordinary glasses. Glass Almanac discovered a patent for a new Google Glass design that makes the gadget more human-friendly. More →

New report claims Apple might delay the iWatch until 2015

What if it turns out that the biggest reason that we haven’t see any leaked pictures of the iWatch is that the device really may not exist in any kind of final form yet? MacRumors has snagged a copy of the latest note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who now says that he wouldn’t be surprised if Apple delayed releasing the iWatch all the way until 2015.

Google releases four new Android Wear ads ahead of Moto 360 launch

Google releases four new Android Wear ads ahead of Moto 360 launch

At this point, Motorola’s upcoming Moto 360 is the only Android Wear-powered smartwatch we’ve seen that people are actually excited for. The wait is now almost over, with Motorola stopping just short of confirming that it will announce availability details during a press event on September 4th. Samsung and LG already have Android Wear smartwatches available for purchase, but their reception thus far has been lukewarm at best. So now that the 360 is almost ready for prime time, Google is making another push to get some exposure for Android Wear.

The first part of its effort involves four new ads that show off various Android Wear watches and their capabilities. More →

Apple iWatch Sales Projection

Why the iWatch is riskier for Apple than you think

Why the iWatch is riskier for Apple than you think

So we’re now pretty certain that Apple will release its iWatch… well, sometime before the end of the year. In the buildup to its release, many analysts have been predicting some absurdly high sales numbers in the iWatch’s first year — remember Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty’s bold projection that Apple could sell as many as 60 million (!) iWatches in its first 12 months on the market. It goes without saying that there are good reasons to be skeptical of such sales projections, especially when you consider that the iWatch actually looks like a pretty risky endeavor from Apple’s perspective.

Forget the iWatch: This red-hot ‘smart shoe’ is the only wearable computer you need

It’s fair to say that wearable tech hasn’t quite caught on yet. Google Glass ignited the conversation, Android Wear has shown a great deal of potential and everyone wants to know if Apple is going to unveil its iWatch this year, but there’s still one untapped resource that still hasn’t been considered: shoes. The Wall Street Journal reports that Indian startup Ducere Technologies Pvt. is going to bring Bluetooth-enabled smart shoes to market this September for less than $100 a pair. More →
