Marizanne Knoesen Watch someone else's heartbeat online

You might want to have a look at this story about a designer who measures her heart and broadcasts a visualization of it beating. Over-examining, if you ask me...

Anton Musgrave Future of wearable computing

An interesting comment is that current wearable products are just a distraction...confusing form over function and in the process blinding us as to the real benefits to users and society.

Doug Vining Disney and the magic data kingdom

While we futurists and trend watchers are expounding on the joys of the Internet of Things, and how we can use data to create deeper and richer customer experiences, companies like Disney are doing just that. Here's a first hand account of Disney magic put to work:

For those who reserve a vacation at Disney’s website, the MagicBands are treated like precious tiaras. Upon booking, each member of your family selects a color. Weeks before your scheduled Disney deployment, a box arrives. In it: each band, inserted carefully into a foam cutout sized expressly for it, like a James Bond weapon surreptitiously hidden in a briefcase. The forename of its owner is imprinted before it in the packaging, as well as on the inside of the band itself. Even before arriving, one can practice what it feels like to be a transmitter of one’s own unique ID. “Welcome to Dataland, princess.”

Marizanne Knoesen This Guy Tracks Everything About Himself And Puts It Up Online For Everyone To See

For now, this guy seems happy doing what he his doing...

“Knowing that my activity is being tracked and published to the world has been a really great motivator to do interesting things or try harder. If no one else was watching I might cut corners, but now I feel like I’m being held accountable, like I’d be letting down my visitors and friends otherwise. I also found myself going out a bit more, and to more interesting, diverse places. I find myself trying to mix it up for the benefit of the historical record.”
