Smart Products Increasing in Prevalence

The technology and fashion industries are two significant and successful industries that used to operation independently from one another. Today, however, the industries are continuing to merge more than ever before as the usage and prevalence of wearable technology has continued to expand. Some of the most common pieces of wearable technology today are smart watches and smart fitness equipment, which can provide a lot of technology and feedback to the user. There are several products in development today, which should hit the marketplace within the next year, which will have a lasting impact on the world.

 

One of the forthcoming pieces of wearable technology is a smart glove, which will be used by firefighters and first responders. When entering an active fire, a firefighter will be able to use the glove to get some information about the fire including temperature, amount of smoke, and other useful data. This will help the firefighters to develop a better plan for when it comes to stopping the fire. Furthermore, each member of the team will have GPS capabilities built into the glove, which will make it easy to find each other once they have entered the building.

 

People who ride bikes or motorcycles will also use wearable technology in the future. While bikers have always worn helmets to protect their heads, there has never been a product in the market designed to protect the neck. A forthcoming product will solve this issue. The design will basically look like a necklace around someone’s neck. During an accident, the necklace will expand rapidly to protect the neck during a collision. The technology and safety features are comparable to what would occur with an airbag.

 

One of the biggest investors in the future of wearable technology is Chris Burch. Chris Burch is the founder and CEO of the Tory Burch Company, which is the producer and seller of high-end fashion accessories and shoes. Burch, who has a personal net worth in excess of $1 billion, has also developed a new company called Burch Creative Capital. This company is a private-equity sponsored fund that places strategic investments in companies that are looking to develop or enhance wearable technology. He has already placed several successful investments and is looking to continue to invest in these companies in the future.
