Apple’s Next Big Thing: Augmented Reality - Bloomberg
Tim Cook has talked up a lot of technologies since becoming Apple Inc.'s chief executive in 2011. Driverless cars. Artificial intelligence. Streaming television. But no technology has fired up Cook quite like augmented reality, which overlays images, video and games on the real world. Cook has likened AR's game-changing potential to that of the smartphone. At some point, he said last year, we will all "have AR experiences every day, almost like eating three meals a day. It will become that much a part of you."

Investors impatient for Apple's next breakthrough will be happy to know that Cook is very serious about AR. People with knowledge of the company's plans say Apple has embarked on an ambitious bid to bring the technology to the masses—an effort Cook and his team see as the best way for the company to dominate the next generation of gadgetry and keep people wedded to its ecosystem.

Apple has built a team combining the strengths of its hardware and software veterans with the expertise of talented outsiders, say the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal strategy. Run by a former Dolby Laboratories executive, the group includes engineers who worked on the Oculus and HoloLens virtual reality headsets sold by Facebook and Microsoft as well as digital-effects wizards from Hollywood. Apple has also acquired several small firms with knowledge of AR hardware, 3D gaming and virtual reality software.

Snap Inc.'s Spectacles Are Dropping Today in These Crazy Cool Vending Machines | Adweek
You are strolling on a sidewalk when you see this unusual-looking machine. You think it might be a vending machine, and, as you draw closer, you discover it's been "sleeping." You know that because you have, via motion sensors, "woken it up," and then you notice it has a big digital eye that seems to want to interact with you. OK, now you understand it is indeed a vending machine, yet it looks a bit like a Minions character, sounds like C-3P0 and is selling a device for $130.
You're not just going to keep on walking, especially if you're a Snapchat-loving millennial who's picked up on the style of the app's out-of-home marketing—and if you have enough room on your credit card to make the purchase.
The above scenario is at the heart of Snap Inc.'s intriguing strategy to sell Spectacles, its souped-up sunglasses that records video, thanks to an integrated camera, from the wearer's eye-level perspective. The company will drop a few of its interactive vending machines, called Snapbots, around the country, starting with one today on Venice Beach nearby its Southern California headquarters. Adorned with big, yellow balloons, the machines will be in a town for about a day before moving to another location.

Snapchat Spectacles and the Future of Wearables – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
To be clear, I am peering into a very hazy future; for one thing Snapchat still has to build an actual business on top of that awesome engagement, although I think the company’s prospects are bright. And it goes without saying that the technology still matters: chips need to get faster (a massive Apple advantage), batteries need to improve (also an Apple specialty), and everything needs to get smaller. This, though, is the exact path taken by every piece of hardware since the advent of the industry. They are hard problems, but they are known problems, which is why smart engineers solve them. What is more difficult to appreciate is that creating a market for that smart technology takes an even more considered approach, and right now it’s difficult to imagine a better practitioner than the one on Venice Beach, far from Silicon Valley.

Samsung will no longer make Android Wear devices, all in with Tizen OS [Update] | 9to5Google
Update: Samsung has refuted the Fast Company article in a statement: “We disagree with Fast Company’s interpretation. Samsung has not made any announcement concerning Android Wear and we have not changed our commitment to any of our platforms.” In terms of commitment, Samsung has shown little towards Android Wear in the past two years. However, the company likely wants to keep the possibility of making future Wear devices open.

Despite being one of the launch partners for Android Wear in 2014, Samsung will no longer make Android Wear devices. Talking to Fast Company, Samsung says no devices are in the works or being planned. The company will instead focus on using Tizen OS for wearables.




The news is rather unsurprising as Samsung has missed several waves of Android Wear devices while frequently iterating on its Gear line of wearables. Hardware-wise, the Gear Live was heavily based on the original Galaxy Gear from 2013. Fortunately, the since discontinued Gear Live has received all the latest versions of Wear over the past two years.

Solos' augmented reality glasses let you bike like an Olympic cyclist | The Verge
Solos' augmented reality glasses project riders' stats on the path in front of them. They'll see heart rate, calories burned, and navigation. But they shouldn't look too closely because really they could crash and these glasses are meant for glances only. They're not cheap, either; pre-orders start at $250. Although the U.S. Olympics cycling team already has its training pairs, the consumer version likely won't ship until October this year.

10 Reasons Why InsurTech Is Going to Be Important | Let's Talk Payments
Technology spending in the global insurance industry is estimated to be around $189 billion. By 2019, the spending industry is expected to reach $205 billion. The IT spending ratio of insurance companies as a percentage of premiums has not changed to a great extent. Insurance companies currently spend about 3.8% of their direct written premium on information technology. The average spending by insurance companies has comparatively reduced in the last four years. There are around 700–800 InsurTech firms globally which are addressing the requirements of the $4.5-trillion insurance industry but the state of InsurTech is at a stage of infancy. New exciting business models to take over the insurance industry such as microinsurance and pay-as-you-go insurance have emerged. What will truly change the nature of the industry is the shift from complex, long-term insurance products to the fractions of insurance for a particular moment, time and miles count. The new opportunities are tied to mobile devices and time-efficiency.

CES 2016: Longevity wearables - JWT Intelligence
Mio Global says its new activity metric can help consumers extend their lives through wearable tech.

Mio Global is at CES this week showing what looks at first glance to be yet another connected fitness band. But this one claims to do something no other device can: to extend the wearer’s life by around 10 years.

The novelty of fitness trackers is wearing thin, but a claim as bold as this one could still get consumers’ attention. Mio gets to the 10-year figure through a new proprietary metric it calls Personal Activity Intelligence or PAI, which it says is far superior to counting steps.

Fitbits and iPhones will punish the PC this holiday shopping season - MarketWatch
The market for PCs is expected to further contract in the fourth quarter and expectations for a potential rebound next year rest mostly on businesses instead of computers. Global shipments of PCs are expected to fall 10% this quarter from last year’s holiday shopping period, pushing full-year shipments down 10.3% to 276.7 million, according to estimates from industry tracker IDC. IDC had previously estimated a 9.2% annual decline.

Catalysts such as a strong dollar, low commodity prices and high levels of inventory prompted IDC to adjust its estimates for early 2016 lower as well. It now projects total PC shipments of 268.3 million in 2016, which would mark a year-over-year decline of 3.1%, versus its prior forecast of a 1.1% decline.

Horizon Report K-12 Education
What is on the five-year horizon for K-12 schools worldwide? Which trends and technologies will drive educational change? What are the challenges that we consider as solvable or difficult to overcome, and how can we strategize effective solutions? These questions and similar inquiries regarding technology adoption and transforming teaching and learning steered the collaborative research and discussions of a body of 56 experts to produce the NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition, in partnership with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). The NMC also gratefully acknowledges ISTE as a dissemination partner. The three key sections of this report — key trends, significant challenges, and important developments in educational technology — constitute a reference and straightforward technology planning guide for educators, school leaders, administrators, policymakers, and technologists. It is our hope that this research will help to inform the choices that institutions are making about technology to improve, support, or extend teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in K-12 education across the globe.

Where Would The Wearables Market Be Without Smartphones? | Forrester Blogs
Few consumers categories have seen the explosive adoption that wearables have - especially fitness wearables.The category has gone from zero to tens of millions in sales in less than five years.
Without smartphones, however, the wearables market is likely nothing more than a fad for devoted athletes and passionate (or overzealous) weekend warriors. Smartphones have fueled growth in two core ways:
Mass adoption of smartphones made the components cheap.
Apps allowed for and created the engagement (e.g., gamification, competition, support, coaching) consumers need to meet their goals.

The future will be quantified, then, because these devices promise the latest iteration of what we’ve always sought: happiness. Which, at least in the 21st century, doubles as simplicity. A life in which your heartbeat and respiration and location dictate when your house turns off and on; a life in which the guesswork of eating and exercising and the mysteries of our bodies could be eliminated. That promise of ultimate, seamless simplicity — and the happiness that supposedly accompanies it — will be too much, even for the most suspicious and privacy-conscious among us, to resist.

Dear Smartwatch, thanks for the notification, now what? | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis
As I use these devices, what becomes apparent is most notifications pushed to the wrist today are useless. More importantly, they are notification overload. One of my concerns is this causes a “my watch cried wolf” kind of syndrome. When so many notifications come to my wrist, and 90% are not useful, I learn to ignore them and then subsequently miss the few that are actually useful.

Why an iWatch is not Apple’s next big thing | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis
I believe we will see this health wearable this year and it will be version 1.0 of Apple’s move into health. Over the next year, they will enhance Healthkit’s abilities and attract many more developers to the Healthkit platform to help them enhance the overall Apple ecosystem for health related apps and services. Then, over time, move that data to the cloud and eventually, once the legal issues are ironed out with the various health laws and codes, make this data available to health care providers.
Although my suggestion that Apple’s wearable will be a health monitor is speculation, I see it as being very plausible and likely the device Apple brings out instead of trying to do an iWatch that tries to be all things to all people. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe Apple is doing an iWatch at all. I believe they are creating a powerful and stylish health wearable designed by Jony Ive. A wearable like this makes more sense in light of the powerful Healthkit program being created. It would be tied to this wearable and add specific value for all of Apple customers. More importantly, it moves the iPhone into the center of their program and could be the major motivator for future iPhone growth over the next three to five years and keep the iPhone Apple’s major cash cow for some time to come.

Wearing It Well: Can Apple Turn Wearables Mainstream? | Re/code
Wearables pose a bigger challenge. Instead of a single strong compelling value (think “1,000 songs in your pocket”), the iWatch looks like it will package an assortment of features. And unlike the iPhone, which replaced three devices (phone, music player and Internet portal) with a single unit, it’s unclear if the iWatch will replace anything customers already use. At its core, the main purpose of the iWatch appears to be that it will gather data and work well with the iPhone. That will have value to some, but will it be enough to drive the industry to the estimated numbers? I can’t say that it’s a slam-dunk.

We don’t know yet what Apple has planned for wearables, but from the rumors around Healthbook, it certainly looks likely that it will be taking almost the opposite approach – namely, adding value to the smartphone experience through peripheral devices. You can think of Google’s approach with Android Wear as being “smartphone-out” – i.e. extending smartphone functionality out to wearables, and Apple’s rumored approach as “wearables-in” – i.e. using wearables to add functionality to the smartphone.
