What’s the deal with the ‘cubicle’?
The next big thing in computing is going to be the couch.
The big question is what is it, and what’s the technology behind it.
In the past year or so, a lot of companies have come up with some of the coolest products around the couch, and now we have a lot more to look forward to in the future.
Here are some of our favourite innovations in the coming years.
Fitness band – An exercise wearable that looks like a normal band.
It works with your smartphone and monitors your activity and calories.
It has a sensor for the temperature of your skin, which you can set manually, or set on the wearer’s wrist.
It even has a heart rate monitor that shows you how much energy your body is consuming.
Durable, flexible, waterproof and rechargeable – Fitbit is currently in a fight to keep its $200 smartwatch afloat, as well as other competitors.
It’s also trying to keep pace with its rivals by making a more affordable smartwatch, and this has resulted in a range of products.
Anodised aluminium case – This one is pretty cool, and the aluminium casing on the Apple Watch Series 4 is no exception.
It features a transparent finish, and comes in three colours: black, silver and titanium.
It also comes with a micro USB charging port, and a magnetic charging dock for the watch.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and running on Android, it’s able to run on top of your smartphone, or run apps on top if you want to use it in your browser.
Wi-Fi charging – A Bluetooth-based charging station that can recharge a smartphone or tablet, and charge it in just seconds.
Cable management – A simple way to monitor your health, as you can tap your watch and see the data displayed on your phone or tablet.
Lumens – A small battery-powered watch that connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth.
The lumens display on the side is the battery level.
It is powered by lithium ion batteries and will last about three days on a single charge.
It comes with the Lumens app for Android, iOS and Windows 10.
T-shirt – The Nike PowerBall 2 is a smartwatch with the ability to record your running, cycling and weightlifting sessions.
It records your workouts and can even display your data on the watch screen.
It can also download your workout history to the Nike Connect app.
Wearables – Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, Nike Powerball 2 and Nike SportWatch are the latest smartwatches to come to market, but they’re not the only ones.
Samsung, Asus and Huawei have also launched smartwares.
These devices are powered by a Snapdragon processor and run on Android and Windows.
Nexus 6 – The Android version of the Nexus 6 is already available, and we have the latest software update that fixes the battery drain issues reported by some users.
It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, and has the latest features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and an IP67 rating.
Android Wear – Wearables have been around for a while, and they have a big market in the smartwatch space.
There are now three main Android Wear watches: Google’s new smartwatch line, LG’s Watch Urbane, and Fitbit’s latest smartwatch.
We can see that Android Wear is a popular smartwatch platform, with more than a billion active users, and many manufacturers are making watches that support the platform.
There’s also the Pebble smartwatch that we reviewed earlier this year.
There is a third smartwatch coming later this year, which we’ll be covering soon.
We’ll cover that one as soon as it’s available, but for now we’ll take a look at Android Wear.
