Ventura Sparc MGS: Hi-tech Watch
Price: US$5150-5500

The Ventura Sparc MGS comes at a hefty price because it is an advanced mechanical automatic digital wristwatch. Its LCD screen and microprocessor rely on the microgenerator system (MGS) instead of standard batteries. The MGS is based on the energy from wrist movements and supports an automatic winding function. Sparc MGS has energy management, alarm clock, chronograph, and 100-year perpetual calendar. In addition, it also has sleep mode (LCD display off, functions on) and motion sensor to monitor watch movements that are usually available on smart wristbands. Its EasySkroll input system uses a scroll wheel to make watch adjustments easy. The MGS can be seen working inside the watch thanks to the transparent housing.

 

MYO: Gesture Control Armband
Price: US$149

 

 

The armband has groundbreaking technology. By waving your arm in the air you can scroll through Web pages. By moving your finger you can switch from one application to another. By clenching your fist you can stop playing a music file. By rotating your wrist you can control the volume. By stretching your arm you can raise a weapon in a computer game. The MYO armband essentially uses muscle activity and electromyography signals to control the devices. MYO first measures the electrical impulses generated by muscle movements in your forearm to detect hand and arm gestures, and finally translates the gestures into the corresponding commands that control a PC, a mobile device, or a remote control.
