Sports and medical devices seem so different that they should be tracked in different industries. One is mission critical (life saving), regulated, and the other is a consumer recreational device like an iPod or DiskMan. I'd guess that the really exciting advances will in in monitoring, regulating (automatic insulin pumps), and prosthetic assistance devices (mobility, vision, hearing).
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
