I think the most useful and interesting aspect of this show was all of the energy harvesting devices. These can be used in any number of applications.

Junko,

Most students use python for programming Raspberry Pi. However, I will start asking the question as I visit universities on an almost weekly basis. I am sure someone is using mruby.

Has anyone used Ruby, object-oriented programming language (open sourced)? Now that 'mruby' for embedded is coming up, as shown in this slideshow, I'd like to get your feedback.

@caleb, exactly. Familiarity is everything when it comes to consumers' purchasing decision -- unless whatever the thing is phenomenally convenient or useful. Wearable devices today are neither.

yeah, that is a peculiar observation. I wonder if it just has to do with familiarity?

Changes in the Japanese electronics industry

Both subtle and big changes were palatable at ET2013 show this year -- among Japanese vendors' booths.

They are more open and willing to pitch solutions they had not developed themselves. It almost looks like they have finally realized that they don't have to invent everything before they go to the market!

Yes, this has been available in the market for some time now. 

I actually find it fascinating...after all, people have appetite for a watch which looks like a watch; but not so much for "wearables" which try to be a smartphone/watch on a wrist.

Is this watch available for sale? I am thinking one day we just have to think and thought can be sensed and converted to an action.
