    Cooley: you have a design aesthetic first at Misfit Wearables. Why is that? Vu says, devices weren't that wearable. So nothing more useless than sensors that don't work. So let's focus on what people will wear first, and then add the sensors.

    May want to look into Hypercat in terms of interop for #iot eyehubiot.com

    Cooley: Why is metal important? Vu: Nothing wrong with plastic, but it's not part of the wearing vocabulary for a lot of people.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:20:36 PM
    Vu: Let's start with materials that are perceived as not cheap, but things you want to wear, that feel good wearing.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:20:56 PM
    Stevens: Let's look a little further down the road, flexible batteries, displays. What is the future of wearables?
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:21:00 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:21:08 PM
    Bell: I'm a believer that many wearables don't need displays. We need to rethink the way we use devices.

  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:21:48 PM
    Bell: the other thing -- We are producing transistors and chips that are so small (at Intel). They're so small. What limits us is battery life. There's been no big advancement in years. There needs to be a lot of work (in that area).
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:22:40 PM
    Cooley: Tablets all look alike, if I may be blunt. Larson-Green: Not all look alike. Form is very important in how it feels. Let's think about kickstands (like on the Surface). there's a lot of detail that can go into the design. They don't have to just be larger phones.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:23:04 PM
    She says that the Surface has had impact on other tablets. I note she completely ignores the impact of the iPad on tablet. That seems a bit disingenuous.

  • Hybrid BMW i8 starting at $135 ,700. Combustion engine in the back and electric motor in the front #CES2014 http://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bdad7ncCIAAPP8W.jpg

    Cooley: A lot of the things that happen in a car are very tactile (in the controls). You could imagine replacing a lot of controls with sensors that react to hand gestures, etc. Buczkowski says, We have a wide range of customers. It's about how do you define intuitive...We are definitely seeing that with the amount of features, the experiences we can create, we have to have an intuitive interface.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:25:12 PM
    Buczkowski: From young people used to video games to older folks, Ford has to think about them.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:25:44 PM
    Buczkowski: If you've got satellite radio with hundreds of choices, how do you go through very quickly (and safely, obviously)?

    Sensors and data....what about privacy? isn't it weird if a cough medicine feeds you an ad if you are GETTING sick, not just when you are sick?
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:27:49 PM
    This from another video
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:28:05 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:28:13 PM
    Video: Can all these services solve real problems, or just present more informaiton.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:28:33 PM
    Stevens: We talked aobut this before, sharing data between devices. Should they be able to connect to each other?
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:28:41 PM
    Stevens: Where should the data live?
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:29:33 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:29:49 PM
    Bell: There's a camp that says all devices should be personal. But the data set itself, even if devices are on the same network, there needs to be standards for device discovery and data discovery. There are some services on the market that are good at device and protocol discovery. We have to be better at defining what that data looks like.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:30:41 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:30:53 PM
    Larson-Green says there's nothing industry wide, in standards.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:31:13 PM
    Cooley asks who in room is in advertising or media industries, and about a third of the room raises hands.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:31:33 PM
    Bell: People should be able to share data if they want to. Maybe people should be able to monetize their own data. But security should be job one.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:31:57 PM
    Bell: There needs to be a foundation of data security. Larson-Green agrees, adding especially when you're talking about people's health.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:32:26 PM
    Buczkowski says it's about adding value for consumers. If they choose not to share their data, that's their choice. Let them add value and share it if they want to.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:33:05 PM
    Vu says that in wearables world, many device makers are enabling open Web APIs. But those things are limited, because they require an internet connection. So one thing we might see is devices connecting directly with apps rather than going through gateways.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:33:10 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:33:22 PM
    Vu: Hopefully, the consumer will win out.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:33:46 PM
    Stevens: In market where people are excited about hardware, how do you get people excited about services that extend their existing hardware?
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:34:30 PM
    Vu: I can't even remember when I couldn't make phone call from my car, or send email on the go. But it was only 15 years ago. I'm interested in what other similar killer use cases will be. Which ones will be uncovered over the next few years. I don't know if sensing your heartbeat is one of them.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:35:06 PM
    Cooley: you said access control could be one of them. Vu says access control could be. If I had something that could predict a heart attack ahead of time, that would be killer. Oops, he says, maybe I shouldn't say "killer."
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:35:46 PM
    Larson-Green: Authentication is one. Gesture and face recognition on Xbox has changed her family's life, she says. It changes how you feel about interacting with technology.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:35:54 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:36:06 PM
    Bell: True biometric authentication will be huge. But it has to be 100%
