From gesture recognition embedded into smart clothing, to smart glasses and smart watches, technology has exploded in recent years in the wearable device space. The smart watch has been popular for many years, and now comes standard with a fitness tracker, heart rate monitor, sleep monitoring, communication to smart phones, and all the associated analytics. Using augmented reality technology, smart glasses have been developed that can display instructions on how to assemble a device, while smart gloves can guide the employee by the hand. Researchers have developed smart electronic glasses that monitor a person’s brain waves and body movements, as well as allow the user to control a video game with eye motions. The wearable medical device industry has created major breakthroughs in the healthcare field, including a device that can measure changes in glucose levels without a blood sample. It will be interesting and fascinating to see where the wearable device market takes us in the next few years.

An expert in wearable device technology might provide testimony in a torts matter like product liability.
