Wearable Technology Detects Abuse
Discovery Channel News covered the research work of Adam Whiton and Yolita Nugent into sensing and categorizing violent forces in a wearable system. Excerpt:
“Computers are becoming more wearable. We carry them around in specially sized pockets, stay attached to them via wired or wireless headsets. We even monitor our body with watches or t-shirts designed to measure heart rate, temperature, and perspiration level.
It’s inevitable that as computers become more ubiquitous on the body, they will be enlisted to address social issues, among them abuse.”
