Titre original : The Cutting Edge in Wearable Devices
The wearable device market continues to expand rapidly around the world. One company that is currently receiving lots of attention is Mitsufuji, a small maker with a staff of just 35. The company is creating woven smart-wear products that contain silver-metalized fibers. The material is so conductive it has the potential to transmit heart-rate and other sensitive biometric information. They hope to use it to gather a wide range of useful data ranging from the vitals of the elderly, to biometric data from athletes and people who work in extreme conditions.
At the recent Bangkok International Motor Show -- the largest show of its kind in the region -- many automobile companies featured eco-friendly cars. Japanese automobile companies have dominated the Thai market for many years with an 80% share of the market. But recently, competition has intensified in the electric vehicle sector.
