VivagoA Finnish company called International Security Technology has come up with a breakthrough aimed at in home monitoring of elderly or critically ill patients. The Vivago is a wrist band with gyroscopic sensors and a transmitter than can communicate with a base station. The sensors monitor the wearers activity levels and can alert medical professionals if the wearer falls, or is acting lethargically. The Vivago also includes a panic button for emergencies. This sounds like an ideal solution for people not ill enough to require a nursing home, but unsteady and at high risk for falling. I can imagine this giving a family a great sense of security about any aging friends or relatives.

ST5000Victorinox Swiss Army, the makers of fine tools, knives, and award winning and innovative USB hard drive hybrid devices announced a stunning new digital watch today: the ST 5000. The ST 5000 features LED lighting and advanced LCD display technologies. The ST 5000 features a built in digital compass for finding true magnetic north.  The watch also includes a pathfinding tool that can lock in an orientation and indicate via a 5 point direction indicator if the wearer is straying off a straight line. The ST 5000 also includes a spirit level to aide in creating level structures for those wilderness adventures. The ST 5000 will be rugged encased in a titanium case and with hardened mineral crystal for it’s face. Sadly with a feature list like this and no price listed on the press release I’m betting that if you have to ask how much this bad boy of a watch is you probably can’t afford one.

SeV T-Shirt Review

We have generally really liked the products that SCOTTeVEST thinks up and puts out there for geek consumption. It’s great to have a simple, easy way to carry all of your gear without having to carry bags or clip-ons. Recently, they released their simplest item yet - The SCOTTeVEST TEC T-Shirt. Instead of having a multitude of hidden pockets like most of the rest of their line, the SeV T-Shirt has just one pocket. It is meant to provide a means to carry around one item while lounging around or being casual. Check out our impressions after the jump.

Dog Disguise Poodle

Check out this dog, standing there feeling sheepish. All because of a few radical dog lovers

proud dog owners want to make a point that it is unfair to ban a whole breed of dog from a location, rather than doing it on a dog-by-dog basis. So because of this, I guess the way to combat is to punish the dog by dressing them up like idiots? Really, if someone wants a poodle, they will get one - not a freaking black lab. That being said, I wouldn’t mind running into a dog dressed like this at Green Lake. It would certainly make my day. If you want to dress your dog in a similar fashion, check out the link.

Fast T-Jet Printer

The ultimate solution for anyone who needs a quick 10,000 or so T-shirts printed out at a moments notice, the Fast T-Jet allows you to print on any light cloth without much delay at all. Of course, even they have their own proprietary ink that you must buy from them, called FastINK Textile ink. Oh, and the printer costs $10,995 USD. There go my dreams of clothing everyone in Seattle in a Flash Gordon shirt.

SCOTTeVEST T-ShirtSo a few days ago we lamented

celebrated our existence, and in doing so we stated that we were going to be giving away some cool stuff over the month. The first prize we had up for grabs was the SCOTTeVEST Tec T-Shirt. Well, frequent Gear Live tipster FalcoBoy7 walked away with this one. It’s in the mail, bro. The next giveaway should be starting later today.


iShirt  These shirts are totally off the hook.  Now your iPod Shuffle can be PART of your outfit, not just a stylish accessory.  The iShirt has a magnetic clasp specially made to allow you to firmly attach an iPod Shuffle to the shirt as the “i” in “iShirt,” showing everyone your MP3 player of choice. PodShirts also offers a new version with a Lego-style brick man (the star of their PodBrix accessory line featuring mini figurines to keep your iPod company) emblazoned on the shirt, upholding your iPod Shuffle for the world to see, and for your listening pleasure.

One Handed WatchAs you can see, this watch only has a minute hand. Upon closer glance, you will also see that the numbers aren’t in the correct place. Truth be told, I think this Gerald Charles A-Evolution watch rocks. Basically there is a windows at the top in which the number of the hour appears, while the minute hand rotates as normal. So the time on the watch at the left is about 1:46. Definitely a cool conversation piece - at least for those that like to stare at your wrist.

SCOTTeVEST iPod CommercialOne of our favorite tech companies here at Gear Live is SCOTTeVEST. They make plenty of high quality, functional clothing items geared towards the gadget enthusiast. In fact, on this trip to New York that I am currently on, the SCOTTeVEST was one of the essential items that I packed. Anyways, they just made their own dancing commercial spoofing the all-so-common Apple iPod ads. I thought it was quite funny the first time around.
