    Vu: You see some startups doing that, for example heartbeat monitoring, where the heartbeat is a signature.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:36:34 PM
    Bell says that's pretty accurate, but not enough. But technology's getting there.

    Buczkowski says we're excited about anticipatory searching. If we can anticipate the next thing you need, and present it to you in a simple way.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:37:30 PM
    People should say, My car helps me have a better life, Buczkowski says.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:37:42 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:37:46 PM
    But, it has to be extremely, extremely accurate, Buczkowski adds.
  • If you have an iPhone charger that you want me to try, meet me at Central Hall #14038 at 3:50 pm #CES2014
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:38:30 PM
    And it has to be personalized. Putting in a pin code isn't enough, Buczkowski says. Biometrics could be a solution, but again it has to be very accurate.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:38:58 PM
    Cooley: does authentication need higher bit rate than devices today need.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:39:19 PM
    Bell: I don't think so. We do need better sensors. To differentiate through noise better. (As in signal to noise).
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:39:39 PM
    Bell: We have the compute power to do some wild things, but we need the data processing power.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:40:19 PM
    Vu: More data requires more resolution. Wearability design, making sure you don't look like a dork, is job one. Very close second is power management. One of biggest complaints is having to charge stuff. So, we said: let's not ask people to charge things. That you can just use.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:40:31 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:40:52 PM
    Cooley: You (Misfit Wearables) may have the only product on the (CES) show floor that doesn't require charging. Congratulations.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:41:27 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:42:35 PM
    Cooley will be turning to the audience for some questions. And if you're watching, you can submit a question on Twitter.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:42:47 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:43:07 PM
    Question from audience: Has there been any research on wearables, based on your genome, to help you eat right?
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:43:15 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:43:19 PM
    Vu: Sounds like a cool startup idea.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:43:47 PM
    Larson-Green: Figuring out the food you eat is hard. Knowing what portions you eat, how many calories, that's a hard problem.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:44:07 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:44:47 PM
    Another audience question: With all the apps out there, bandwidth is getting hard to come by, there's dead spots. Have you thought about bandwidth sharing? How can you guys figure out some kind of topology that helps share available bandwidth? So those that need it get it ,and those that don't can give it up?
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:45:27 PM
    Bell: I'd argue that current market for data plans assume you don't do that. The pricing models are based on people not using some of the data they pay for. The carriers wouldn't be happy about it, he says.
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:46:03 PM
    Another question, from a 13-year-old: If someone has a device providing sensor data, if they want to present it but not share it, how do it?
  • It's only by 4 mins but I finally made it to one of my #CES2014 meetings on time today!
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:47:00 PM
    Vu: I heard a story about sharing data with different types of people, not necessarily with friends. Maybe not sharing data about losing weight with friends, but just want their friends to compliment them on losing weight. So, sometimes you do want to share, and sometimes you don't. It's about selective privacy.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2014 11:48:16 PM
  • Daniel Terdiman 1/7/2014 11:48:24 PM
    Stevens: There's been talk about the Xbox One always watching you, right? Larson-Green says that the Xbox is gathering data, but not sending it back. She also said that she's surprised that a kid would be surprised about privacy.
