When Google Glass was launched in 2013, everyone wanted their hands-on to that gadget. It enabled a new type of augmented reality where people can virtually see details and content in their field of view. Well, that was just a start of for-consumer-wearables.
Chris Dancy – a Greater Denver, US based tech addict tells you how future of wearable devices will affect an average human’s life. He is the world’s most connect guy.
Chris is quantifying every moment of every day in his life from past few years. He knows the number of steps he travels every day, his average heart-rate in a given period of time and even the quality of sleep he catches every night.
Known as the most connected man on earth, Chris is connected with a variety of wearable tech devices like fitness wristband tracker Fitbit and the Pebble smartwatch. He even sleeps on a digital mattress to track his sleep.
40 years old Chris utilizes over 300 sensors and systems to track, analyze, and optimize real-time data about his life in as many areas of his existence as he can think of. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.
