|Serious patent background here...we had a nice chat with Abominable Labs' CEO-Jack Cornelius that didn't venture too far above our pay grade level. This ABOM goggle for snow sports types-available in six colors and 4 lens options (interchangeable)-is really a breakthrough for no fog protection. Easy to operate- the ABOM is comfy -light, fits faces with 3 layer foam -thermal formed-with impact protection, and with just one press of the button-the thin (REALLY) film transparent heater (that's hooks up to a usb rechargeable power source)-built into the lense- heats up the surface to slightly warmer than dew point-that prevents condensation. Think of it like a car rear window defroster...All waterproof electrical connectors of course. No wonder the Defense Dept. came a' calling.|
Lycos Life interactive smartband---which like many beefed up timepieces on the market-can be Bluetooth BLE 4.0 connected to a smartphone-wth a free app---that provides fitness stats-activity tracker information-pedometer, calories expended, sleep monitoring (Automatic Sleep Monitoring), and -bonus-heartrate EKB/ECG readouts in real time (press two side buttons)-for $124.99.
What interests the geeks we know= the features of storing personal info on the band via the included NFC stickers that become NFC tag when information is stored---that can transfer the 411 with NFC enabled devices-using its wireless tap to transfer function (T2T), can unlock a phone without a password, and can kinda act as the keeper to the castle keys of personal info like contact +email addresses, fav website and apps- passwords (Secure Password Management System) via the Lycos Life app (which we assume is secure)-eliminating the needs to remember all those different passwords. Intriguing as it is not a smartphone on the wrist-though one can set alarms and receive notifications, hands free...but more belongs to the Internet of all Things (IoT) world- that's all the buzz and supposed to make our increasingly connected lives easier, more automated, and probably less private.

There's also a Lycos Ring with fitness activity monitoring functionality. That's pretty cool and think might be the next piece of jewelry for men and women as ---especially since we read about that Apple iRing .
