Ultimate Ears Pro have been making in-ear monitors for over 20 years now. However, in just the past year or so the company has made a huge change on the way they create their earphones. Going from completely handcrafted and the traditional productions methods to 3D printing. By doing so they will be able to create some of the most accurate sculpted in-ear monitors ever!

Wearable World, Inc., the San Francisco-based technology incubator and ventures company, announced today the inaugural IoT for Cities Summit and Challenge with the City of San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation (MOCI) to design, create and build Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables applications for improving city life for residents and visitors in cities around the world.

In the past drones have been used mostly for military use in the United States, but with the cost of making them dropping in recent years it has commercial users more interested in utilizing the drones in their business. Minds have been racing with the possibilities ever since the CEO of Amazon announced the company plans to start deliveries by way of drone like “octocopters”. He has even stated that the deliveries would be completed within thirty minutes or less. Is this truly a possibility when it comes to the delivery of our packages? Is it possible to get merchandise we order on the same day?

The smart home may be angling for the mainstream, but right now it’s stuck swimming in a niche. Turning lights on automatically and setting thermostats from a smartphone is the stuff geeks revel in now, but for the smart home to reach flooding point, it must transform, not augment, the domestic realm — and it needs to start in the kitchen.

Google Glass started a revolution for wearable devices. Before all the hype for different fitness bands, smart watches and other wearables today, Google Glass jumpstarted today’s wave of wearable technology. No other company competes with Google Glass on the augmented reality (AR) market, but there are plenty of startups looking to take a bite at the market. Optinvent is one of the startups looking to compete and started a Kickstarter campaign to make the ORA Smart Glass into a reality.

Streaming video is at an interesting crossroads right now. A generation of content creators raised on YouTube is transitioning to the more social live video experience, exponentially growing the entire streaming industry and building billion dollar streaming platforms.

I’m normally an organized person, but sometimes I can be a bit forgetful. For example, my keys become invisible when I most need it and my phone tends to hide in crevices I never knew existed in my home. I can’t always keep track of all the little things, but a simple solution may help my memory now. Tintag created a simple Bluetooth device to help me (and others) to keep track of our valuables.

Since the day I got the Samsung Gear Live, I was in love with the thing. Like anything for the first generation or two of a Google product, you are basically paying them to be a beta tester. And I am totally fine with this.

Smartwatches. Galaxy Gear. iWatch.

Name it, and it’s all over the headlines these days. In the tech world, the hype is on these wearable tech timepieces that function more than just telling the time. Think of having a condensed smartphone right on your wrist, having additional functions such as being able to provide weather information, messaging notifications, and other key functionalities that are unique to each brands.

Everything is getting “smart” these days. Basically every device you can think of out there can be connected to the web, stream music and play back videos, serve as a means of communication, etc… To that end, we’re now in a time when those same devices are being developed to become, well, smarter and take on tasks that were once only perceived to be the things of science fiction novels and movies. Case in point: The ability to use voice authentication technology in our homes.
