New Smart Street Corners That Will Act Like a Fitbit for the City -
"Every 15 seconds these sensors will gather information like temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide, vibrations, light, and sound—pretty standard stuff. But Charlie Catlett, director of the Urban CCD, says gathering even basic data can help us to evaluate some of our cities’ most unquantifiable features like hyper-local air quality, pedestrian traffic, emergency route efficiency, and resource allocation like salt for icy roads." - traims

[PDF] Identifying User Traits by Mining Smart Phone Accelerometer Data -
"We show that it is possible to identify a user’s sex, whether they are short or tall, and whether they are light or heavy [..] Similarly, we demonstrate that we can predict a user’s height and weight, but that such fine grained predictions are of only modest quality." - traims

Intel partners with Michael J. Fox Foundation for wearables study on Parkinson’s -
During the multiphase research study, patients will monitor their symptoms with wearable devices. Symptoms that the researchers are interested in measuring include slowness of movement, tremor, balance, gait, and sleep quality. Ideally, participants will wear the devices 24 hours a day and seven days a week to maximize the number of readings researchers will receive. Creating correlations between these symptoms could help researchers understand the progression of the neurodegenerative disease and also help them track the disease’s relationship with molecular changes. - traims

Runtastic Orbit: a waterproof wristband that tracks activity, sleep and ambient light -
"You’ll see a small light sensor that tracks the light in your immediate environ. This is then presented to you via a nice colorful graph, and can give an idea of what kind of environments you’re spending your day in. It’s limited with the current version, insofar as it can’t really tell if you’ve been outdoors or not, and it’s certainly not a UV sensor. We’re told this could develop in future iterations though, and will feed in to a much deeper ‘happiness and wellbeing’ metric. “In the future, we plan to do even more with your ambient light data,” explains Runtastic founder Florian Gschwandtner. “Options and ideas are still in the works, but everything from helpful sunscreen reminders, correlations with Happy Tracking, to smart notifications letting people know when they’re most ‘as risk’ for being inactive are possibilities.”" - traims
