Wrist-watches are sooooo last Century.

I rarely see a young person wearing a wrist-watch any more.  Soon they'll be perplexed by the wrist-watch joke in Laurel and Hardy's The Flying Deuces (1939).

Will this give an opprtunity for more and more hardware makers to start entering into this market with cheaper and yet cosmetic gadgets.

I think so -- I think if we look just a few years into the future we will be amazed at the variety of wearable electronics products that are available.

That's because they don't have a holographic watch like this one

When I saw the photo of the two models looking intently at strange 20th Century devices wrapped around their wrists, I thought it might be more strategic for QuickLogic to target 21st Century applications.  What's next, using a disco ball to mount a whole-room scanner?

Someone is going to develop one of those and make a lot more money than you.

That's because they use their phones as watches.

I never liked wearing a watch. My wife boiught be one as an engagement gift. I wore it for about a year, then put it away forever. That was long before I had a phone. If you don;t carry a timekeeper, you develop an acute sense of time. Plus, I had a clock in my car and since I was usually driving when time mattered, I had a timekeeper then.

@MeasurementBlues: ...I never liked wearing a watch. My wife boiught be one as an engagement gift...

A couple of years ago I treated myself to a Nixie-Tube Watch from Cathode Corner. I showed it to my wife and told her it was my pride and joy and I would never buy another wristwatch again.

For Christmas she bought me a .... wait for it... wait for it... yes, you got it -- a wristwatch.

Now, it's a very nice wristwatch and I wear it all the time -- my Nixie-Tube watch is in my office (on the bright side this is keeping it safe and in great condition).

When I'm going to speak at a conference -- on the way to the airport -- I sneak into my office and exchange watches -- then swap them out again upon my return LOL

Wow!! :) This is an excellent "portable" timepiece. ;)

What other functions it has other than being a timepiece? Or it is just a timepiece?

Are you kidding? It measures voltage and time. It's a projector, a light source, and wilth some modification, it can be a musician's metronome. Just get the trace pulsing as the right time. For that matter, it can be a disco strobe light.

You want to wear a Dick Tracy gadget? Fine with me. But, I'm not putting an oscilloscope on my wrist.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
