With wearable technology improving at such a vast pace as well as a slew of crowdfunding sites this may just come closer to a reality than you think.

Following TV Series is definitely one of the guilty pleasures in life but not all of us can be absolutely current with the latest episode because of time difference and the distinct lack of time to just sit down and watch. If you’re like me and save your TV shows for a dedicated day to just marathon the crap out of it, then spoilers are a very real threat. With social media, it’s very easy to get the latest episode of Game Of Thrones spoiled by an errant tweet.
Why settle for a one-way mirror when you can have both properties in 1 pane of glass/mirror? MIT Scientists have invented an invisible mirror that can show reflections as well as be seen through like a window. Alternating 84 layers of glass and tantalim oxide make this one of the coolest things we’ve seen.
New scientist writes:
As light passes from one of these layers to the next, some gets partially reflected – except for light that approaches from a certain angle. Any light that hits the surface of a layer at this so-called Brewster angle, and with a particular polarisation, will pass straight through as if the surface wasn’t there. The Brewster angle is different for each pair of materials as it depends on their refractive indices.
According to a report from CNET, it looks like Nike has laid off certain key people from the team responsible for the FuelBand fitness tracker. Roughly 55 employees were let go from Nike’s Digital Sport hardware team that covers industrial design and engineering for wearables. According to spokesperson Brian Strong, the company will “make changes within the team, and there will be a small number of layoffs.”
This doesn’t mean that wearables are completely not on the radar for Nike as there have been rumours for a while now pointing towards an Apple manufactured piece of hardware for the future of Nike wearable and that seems the most likely after this report. Let’s hope that the Fuelband will come up to par with the rest of the wearables in its future iterations.
