  3. 3.  Wearable computing is thought by many commentators to be the next big thing in technology, with products such as Google Glass and Smart watches in the digital market.  It has been made with the basic idea that people will wear it in the same way they wear earrings.  Can anyone of YOU sitting in this room guess, what the device will look like ?
  4. 4.  Its designs are based on traditional "ikebana" flower arrangements.  They have made this with the basic idea that people will wear it in the same way they wear earrings.
  5. 5. The device, known at the moment as the "Earclip- type Wearable PC" has a microchip and data storage, enabling users to load software. A tiny personal computer that is worn on the ear and can be controlled with the blink of an eye or the click of a tongue is being tested now in Japan.
  6. 6.  The device, called Earclip-type Wearable PC, was built at Hiroshima University, weighs 17g, and is fitted with GPS, compass, gyro-sensor, speaker and microphone.  It uses infrared sensors that monitor tiny movements inside the ear and can track every time a wearer's eyes and mouth move.  It can be connected to any Bluetooth-enabled device and can be programmed to register certain movements.  For example, a wearer could scroll through menus by winking, or open a programme by sticking out their tongue or clenching their teeth.
  7. 7. Created by Hiroshima City University staffer Kazuhiro Taniguchi, the prototype device's interface uses infrared waves to detect when the wearer opens and closes his mouth. Those movements send corresponding command signals back to the device.  Conceivably, apps could be created for the device that would let you do things.  It will fetch traffic information or get directions by turning your head or biting down.
  8. 8. Aside from allowing the wearer to operate the device completely hands free, Taniguchi also believes the Ear Switch's sensors could serve as a tool to monitor the wearer's health. However, Taniguchi hasn't released many of the technical details behind the device, so at this point it's best to consider this a brilliant concept device that may become a commercial reality.
  9. 9.  The device uses infrared sensors that monitor tiny movements in the ear, which differ depending on how the eyes and mouth move.  It uses smartphone features to connect to the Internet would mean you could be automatically put in touch with people in faraway places who are doing the same thing as you.  An onboard accelerometer can access information based on GPS data.
  10. 10. The TECHNICAL Combination
  11. 11.  Because the user does not have to move either hand, its developers say it can serve as "a third hand" for everyone from caregivers to rock- climbers, motorbike riders to astronauts, as well as people with disabilities.  "Supposing I climb a mountain, look at the sky at night and see a bright star up there, it could tell me what it is," Taniguchi said. "As it knows what altitude I'm at, which direction I'm looking and at what angle, it could tell me, 'The bright star you are seeing now is Sirius'."  Using a smartphone to connect to the Internet would mean you could be automatically put in touch with people in faraway places who are doing the same thing as you.
  12. 12.  "This could connect you with a person who is looking at the same star at a remote place at the same time," enabling the people to swap impressions, Taniguchi said.  A second version of the device might be pressed into use to help relatives keep an eye on elderly family in greying world population.  The earpiece, which could also function as a hearing aid, could monitor the wearer's health, including their pulse and body temperature, while logging how often they eat and sneeze, offering early warning of the onset of illness.
  13. 13. The system, which developers are hoping to have ready for Christmas 2015, can be connected to an iPod or other gadget and would allow the user to navigate through software programmes using facial expressions, such as a raised eyebrow, a stuck- out tongue, a wiggle of the nose or by clenching teeth.
  14. 14. The Cinematic Effect of this device.  The technology is reminiscent of the in-ear computer worn by Joaquin Phoenix in the 2013 film Her won an Academy Award for Original Screenplay.  In the film, Phoenix's character Theodore Twombly falls in love with an operating system with a female voice. Actor Joaquin Phoenix wearing the “Tiny Ear Computer” in the movie “HER”.
  15. 15.  It’s the next BIG thing in wearable computing digital revolution.  It is a replacement of carrying smart devices( smart phones, tablets) in obscure places while travelling ( cycling, motorbiking, mountain riding).  It can be used for health monitoring issues by the users ( especially elder people).  Remember its not only PORTABLE, its WEARABLE !!!
