Wristcam lets you take pictures with an Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has never had a camera. Apple may never add one. But one company is giving the Watch the power of sight via a watchband accessory called the Wristcam.

As watchbands go, the Wristcam is a bit of a beast; it looks thick and rigid on the wrist. But there’s a lot of technology inside. The band packs two cameras—an 8-megapixel world-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing selfie camera. Both use Sony sensors (like the iPhone), and both capture high-definition photos and 1080p video.

A large button on the band activates one or the other of the cameras (you double-press to switch between the cameras, single-press for photos, and long-press for video). The Wristcam connects to the Apple Watch via Bluetooth, so that images or video immediately show up within the Wristcam app on the screen of the Watch.

The device has 8 GB of memory, enough to

Aussie researchers trial new technology to help seniors stay on their feet

Researchers at the University of Queensland are trialling new technology to help senior Australians stay on their feet and reduce falls. 

The VertiGuard is a light-weight sensor worn on a belt that continuously records and detects the body’s sway in different directions.

An exercise program is created using the data, which helps train the body into better movement and balance.

New tech will give cops access to residents’ private security video

Police in Mississippi’s homicide-wracked capital are one step closer to being able to access residents’ livestreaming home security video — in a move opposed by privacy advocates.

The police department in Jackson will soon become one of two dozen places across the country to sign on with Fusus, a company that makes its easier for cops to create a network of real-time video from public and private cameras, NBC News reported.

Residents in the city of 160,000 — which recorded a decade-high 84 murders in 2018 — can opt into the service with their doorbell cameras, like Ring.

The livestream feed would then be funneled directly to the city’s new real-time command center.

“What you see behind us is an opportunity, an opportunity to better observe and fill in the gaps,” said Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba at the center’s ribbon-cutting last month, NBC News said.

Covid-19 Is derailing cancer clinical trials. Is new technology required to get them back on track?

Paper made silhouettes with one of them of orange color to stand out from the rest

The coronavirus pandemic has affected every aspect of American healthcare. Some have postponed medical, dental or vision appointments for themselves or family members out of fear of contracting the virus. Many providers have deferred nonessential visits to slow the pandemic’s spread and keep critical staff available to treat patients with Covid-19.

The clinical trial cycle is also experiencing significant disruption. One leading oncology practice publication notes that new cancer diagnoses are down 37% since the pandemic began, and IQVIA data shows that “22 million people postponed cancer screening tests and 80,000 patients delayed or missed diagnoses.” (IQVIA is an investor in Inteliquet, the company I lead as president and COO).

How do we ensure that the right patient can still access the right drug at the right time, at a time when many oncology clinical trials which would provide a much-needed treatment option have been delayed?

I don’t know why anyone thought this was a good idea, but apparently Jackson, Miss. is experimenting with a pilot program that would give police the ability to access real-time video surveillance from your home security camera.

So did none of these people play Watch Dogs? Watch Psycho-Pass? Consume literally any media about the dangers of a surveillance state? No? Go figure.

According to NBC News, police in Jackson, Miss. have partnered with Fusus, a Georgia-based company whose focus is on creating cost-effective surveillance networks for law enforcement, to build a new surveillance network. The proposed network would give law enforcement the ability to access live, real-time footage of private and public security cameras.

Why are they doing this? Well, for the same reason anyone does anything in this country: money.

The pilot program is being explored by cities that are experiencing rising
