Solène Bourgeois, director of industrial and interaction designer at Bridge, addressed a packed room recently on the topic: Smart Products: When our Daily Objects Become Connected
Joining her as speakers were Ivy Roos, head of GoogleGlass; and Denise Gershbein, executive director at Frog. The event was put on by SheSays.com and hosted at the SF offices of R/GA digital agency.
Her talk presents the differences between medical and consumer smart products as well as the upcoming trends for the medical applications.
The world has undergone enormous changes over the past decade. We now live in a world where communication is paramount. It seems that everyone and everything is connected in some way.
For school students this has made things much more efficient. Research papers that used to involve hours of laborious effort, can now be researched and documented without ever touching a card catalog or a periodical index. Worlds of information are now available at the click of a mouse.
Questions that people pondered without any answer previously can now simply be typed into any convenient search engine and answered almost immediately. There are countless sites filled with informative short articles all over the Internet. Videos and music can now be seen on demand and news from across the world can be delivered in an instant.
There are some people who worry that the technological revolution and evolution we are experiencing today is moving too fast. There seems to be a loss of privacy in some respects and the specter of a Big Brother society looms larger than it has since 1984. Whether their fears are well founded or not will remain to be seen, but it is unlikely that people will ever willingly give up the almost instant connections to our wired world.
Flying in the face of these fears are individuals who share their worlds through their blogs. What used to be shared with only close friends is now put online for millions of people to see if they should happen upon the blogger’s website. Individuals are learning to take advantage of this by using their well placed blogs to sell products and services. The internet has allowed individuals an opportunity to step on to the same playing field as the big boys of business. With the right information and the ability to get it seen, anyone can now reach the masses and share their thoughts, feelings and even sales pitches.
Businesses as well as individuals have come to rely on the Internet as a source of advertising and actual sales. Entire business models have been constructed and thriving based solely on using Internet websites. It is rare today to find a traditional brick and mortar establishment that does not have some type of online presence. Any business that does not adapt and grow to keep up with the newest technology seriously risks being left behind in the wake of their competitors who choose to ride technology’s leading edge.
Time will tell where this all will lead. We should make the most of the positive possibilities technology promises, but we should also keep a careful watch on where we are going.

Who says that jewelry trends are just for the fashion savvy women? Many men have a keen interest in fashion trends and jewelry specifically, and this season’s looks are sure to entice even the most fashion-cynical male. As we move out of a cold winter, men’s trends are staying on a neutral color scheme, with clothing trending more toward shades of gray. Read on to find out what jewelry works with this hot spring look.
One hot jewelry trend for men is I.D. bracelets. Nothing that resembles something you would see on a hospital patient or on a luggage tag-these bracelets are chic and stylish. Men can get their real name and information engraved on these beauties (available in silver, gold and white gold), or perhaps a favorite quote or song lyric. The possibilities are endless, and you will be seeing these on runways everywhere.
For a while there, it was more fashionable for men to be wearing more understated pieces of jewelry, such as a simple thin necklace with no pendent. This year, spring has men’s necklaces blooming in a big way.
