For cheating at the "10K steps a day" tracking for improved social credit scores in china. Apparently some of the insurance companies are providing them as well?

BlackBerry Privacy Shade - Android Apps on Google Play
Uses the selfie camera as an active gaze tracker to obscure areas of the screen outside your direct line of sight. Some windows privacy screen apps do similar, but obfuscating with gibberish rather than darkening. But this seems locked to Blackberry android phones...

Uh, I suppose it wins points for DIY low cost, but couldn't you get most of the same results without pesticides with a single axis tracking PV panel on top of a containerized hydroponic system, using the container frame as part of the PV mount?

Using the whole house/roof as a sun tracker is kinda interesting, when the interior walls are exposed to exterior lighting in the daytime, but sealing up at night for better insulation?

Interesting AR eyeglasses concept. Basically, expand the traditional tracking capabilities of AR headgear. In this case, a Kinect type sensor mounted above otherwise conventional see through HMD glasses. Though if the Leap Motion trackers live up to the hype, I would think they might be a better alternative to capturing user hand gestures for AR GUI controls.

Misfit Shine: an elegant, wireless activity tracker | Indiegogo
I really want to know the trick they use to sync with an iPhone. It's wireless, and works in airplane mode, so no RF. Which basically comes down to some sort of buzzer transducer trick using audio encoding, or some sort of trick involving the capacitive screen of the phone itself interacting with the tracker.

Wallet TrackR
Interesting wallet tracker tag concept. Using Bluetooth 4 low power, their standalone tag claims 1.5 years. Which is a considerable improvement over other wallet tracker tags, which typically only last a week between recharges. Though the flip side problem is only the iPhone 4S or later have Bluetooth 4, and hardly any android phones feature it, so this is effectively locked to Apple products for the time being.

Looking for information? - Research News November 2012 - Topic 5
Conceptually similar to, but is not, an eyetap AREMAC. Actually, this would work well for the inner portion of an eyetap, as the gaze tracking provides an additional UI input separate from head tilt and voice commands.

QBotix - Solar Powered by Robotics
Strange concept of a robot arm on what is essentially a cheap agricultural monorail track going around adjusting the tracking axis of solar panels in a solar panel field. The idea is the cost of the robot+monorail track+robot battery charge is cheaper than having tracking motors+electronics+power for every panel in a field, assuming the robot can service all the panels in a field in a timely manner.

3D HMD with integrated android OS, head tracking, hand tracking(?!?), but unfortunately it does not conquer the "Stand back citizen, I'm from the internet!" dumb look problem for HMD's. Unclear if the forward sensors (presumably used for the hand tracking) are optical cameras or just some kind of distance ranger like an ultrasonic transducer. If optical cameras, there might be the possibility for AR.

Peerdrum | See What's Happening
Okay, this could be really evil in the wrong (or slightly paranoid) manager's hands, but you gotta give credit for allowing the telecommuting client/user to stop the surveillance on their own (and the maker claims they only track active work time in total, not the length of the breaks/off time though admittedly you could back calculate that pretty well) but this still gives me the creeps. Though I couldn't complain much if it was a company computer at home, or isolated inside a company provided VM via something like VMware ACE, or a on a remote desktop running in a company datacenter like a desktop VM such as Citrix Xen Desktop or VMware VDI. I sure as hell wouldn't allow that on my own private PC.

Good concept, but no mention of wireless bands in use (wifi interference? bluetooth being used?), and no local data dumps (all data must at least go through their server before it may be possible to scrape the data from the site). Which makes a bit of sense that the website is free (at the cost of giving statistical data to the company for later sales to marketing companies). Open format here with local dumps would have put them at risk of getting outpaced by a knockoff that is compatible.

Not yet a single chip solution, but that's probable just a packaging problem that will be rectified shortly. Drop this into an USB powered and operating Eyetap, and you will probably have an awesome AR HMD setup.
