Fitness OnDemand

One of the articles/videos I watched was the Fitness on Demand. Fitness on demand are programs that are dedicated to specific workout through video. These workouts can be, zumba, spin class, yoga, or even a high intensity workout. Fitness os demand makes it possible for more class times, more class formats and more class participants. It can be programmed through kiosk in an empty studio space at a designated time that you can sign up for online. Some popular programs are: Jillian Michaels, Insanity, and Zumba.

THE USE OF INTERNET OF THINGS IN HEALTHCARE IN 2018

IoT which stands for Internet of Things is the new buzz. Almost everything we touch everyday has to do with some sort of technology. And IoT will become revolutionary in the next few years.

In the medical world, doctors, care facilities, hospitals, outpatient clinics and assisted living care centers are even increasingly using advanced technologies to improve their operations. By using more technology that organizes data,it provides a higher utilization of resources, improved patient experience, increases stability, and also increased energy efficiency. This will also cut costs dramatically. I found this very interesting from my other research that relates that even more people are using technology in the medical field. I think that it is a really good idea for health care costs and health care in general. I would love to see where this goes in the future and even in the next year.

A smart Scarf? Microsoft researchers have now demoed a smart scarf that on common can heat up and vibrate. It is composed of sensors that are connected to a main sensor, which is then connects to bluetooth, so all you have to do is touch a button on your smartphone. This can be useful for people with autism and have trouble managing their emotions, it could comfort them. Going forward they also want to incorporate cooler the user down in an indication that the user is stressed. This scarf is a very discreet way of hiding technology.

Right now, it is more of a concept than a creation Microsoft says, but who knows where it could lead to.
