From sunglasses to running shoes and watches, everything is being embedded with technology. Here are three great new finds.
1 Soundglasses by Buhel
The arms of Buhel’s Kickstarter-funded Soundglasses conduct sound waves through bone directly to the ear. Wirelessly connected to a smartphone, they let you listen to your favourite ’80s hits, guilt-free, and no one will be the wiser.
2 Ultra Boost by Adidas
Adidas Ultra Boost shoes – with a minimalist floral upper in dusty hues, by Stella McCartney – will add bounce to your step via soles that hide an energy-returning system, which was developed using software borrowed from the aeronautics industry.
3 Activité by Withings
Withings Activité measures steps walked, calories burned and the wearer’s sleep quality, all while presenting a classic face that moves seamlessly from gym to boardroom.
