Monitor the Bluetooth activity around you
BluetoothView is a small utility that runs in the background, and monitor the activity of Bluetooth devices around you. For each detected Bluetooth device, it displays the following information: Device Name, Bluetooth Address, Major Device Type, Minor Device Type, First Detection Time, Last Detection Time, and more.
BluetoothView can also notify you when a new Bluetooth device is detected, by displaying a balloon in your taskbar or by playing a small beep sound.

Litho fiinger-worn controller
an innovative finger-worn device that provides control over various “spatial interactions” and should find applications ranging from AR and VR to the smart home and the control of other IoT devices. The Litho device itself is described as an unobtrusive finger-worn controller that connects via Bluetooth Low Energy to a smartphone or AR headset. The controller has a capacitive touch surface on the underside, which allows for precise 2D input, scrolling and tapping. But, more significantly, it also has an array of motion sensors and provides haptic feedback.

How L’Oréal Designed The UV Sense To Fit On Your Fingernail | Digital Trends
The UV Sense is a battery-free wearable electric sensor you stick onto your fingernail. It can measure UV exposure, which you can track via a companion app on your smartphone. Through testing, the L’Oréal team found that placing the UV Sense on nails returned the most accurate feedback to UV exposure. Since taking the battery out helped create a thinner and smaller sensor, Béhar saw the opportunity to disguise it as nail art. For even more versatility, the team is in the process of creating bracelets and watch accessories with the sensor, as well as clips that can attach to sunglasses.

Battery-Free Biosensor Measures Your Health by Drinking Your Sweat | Digital Trends
At present, the majority of wearable biomarker sensors require onboard batteries to power them. While that’s perfectly acceptable for some use cases, it’s not as well-suited for tasks such as continuous tracking for medical purposes. To solve this problem, researchers from Northwestern University have developed a battery-free soft skin patch that’s able to wirelessly gather data about the body by testing sweat components. In time, the team hopes that this technology will be useful for clinical applications such as cystic fibrosis diagnosis and rehabilitation tracking among stroke survivors.

Long-Range RFID With Feedback | Hackaday
If you’re catching up, passive RFID technology is behind the key fobs and stickers which don’t need power, just proximity to the reader’s antenna. This is a much “hackier” version that works with discrete signals instead of analog ones. It will not however require writing a new library and programming new tags from the ground up just for the user to get started, so there is that trade-off. Sparkfun offers a UHF reader which can simultaneously monitor 25 of the UHF tags shown in this paper.

To construct one of these enhanced tags, the antenna trace is broken and then routed through a switching device such as a glass-break sensor, temperature limit switch, doorbell, or light sensor. Whenever continuity is restored the tag will happily send back its pre-programmed data, and the reader will acknowledge that somewhere one of the tags is seeing some activity.

Dirt Cheap Muon Detector Puts Particle Physics Within DIY Reach | Hackaday

The VL53L0X is a Time of Flight distance sensor like no other you've used! The sensor contains a very tiny invisible laser source, and a matching sensor. The VL53L0X can detect the "time of flight", or how long the light has taken to bounce back to the sensor. This is the 'big sister' of the VL6180X ToF sensor, and can handle about 50mm to 1200mm of range distance.

Distance sensing @ SparkFun Electronics
Distance and proximity sensing allow you to easily detect the whereabouts of objects without physical contact. Distance sensors (or proximity sensors) generally work by outputting a signal of some kind, (eg laser, IR LED, ultrasonic waves) and then reading how it has changed on its return. That change may be in the intensity of the returned signal, the time it takes the signal to return, etc.

Non-Invasive Biosensor on a Chip [video] | Health Tech Insider
Researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) in conjunction with teams in Australia and Sweden have developed a tiny gas sensor that is about 50 times smaller than a human hair. They are fabricated on chips and rely on pulses of light to trigger measurements. They operate at room temperatures, and are sensitive to extremely small concentrations of the target gas. They are so sensitive that they can even detect gas biomarkers that escape through the skin. The result is a sensor system that could easily incorporated into wearable devices, including a smart watch. It is possible that these sensors could eventually reduce or even eliminate the need for many blood tests.
