As a big fan of wearable technology, I am very happy to see a Spanish start-up making it to the finals of Intel’s Make It Wearable Challenge. The team of First V1sion will be presenting their prototype for the grand finale on November, 3. The project is a sports broadcast patented system that consists of a camera integrated in the athlete’s competition shirt for a broadcast. There is also a built-in Intel Edison chip that measures heartbeat and other important biometrics that can avoid sudden deaths. Indeed, there is innovation in Spain and I wish the team the best of luck.
