Plantronics shows how sensors will change every product

Published

As I get around the world of business looking for stories about how we're headed into an age of context, where sensors, wearable computers, big data, social data, and location data will be combined to change our products and our companies I can think of no better place to start than Plantronics. Their headsets were used by the first astronauts and are often at the cutting edge of wearable devices.

Here I visit with Joe Burton, CTO and Senior Vice President of Engineering and Development, to get a look at how Plantronics is thinking about sensors and interactions and gestures.

They also just released an SDK and are doing hackathons to help keep up on the bleeding edge. More on those at http://developer.plantronics.com/people/gregrose/blog/2013/02/04/did-you-see-the-plantronics-developer-connection-prize-for-the-launch-hackathon

By the way, the really cool stuff comes toward the end of this video, so don't miss the end.
