Smart Sensors Get Sweaty, Camera Hackers Get Investigated, and More in Five for Wednesday


  1. Researchers have developed a band filled with sensors that can detect the levels of sodium, potassium, glucose, and lactate in your sweat. Smart watches and activity bands might be getting a whole lot smarter pretty soon.
  2. New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs has launched an investigation that seeks to find out why some internet-connected baby monitors are susceptible to hacking.
  3. VIDEO: Many technology sites today were excited about Starry, a wireless home internet service. Watch this brief video for an overview.
  4. A Japanese company is going to staff one of their stores entirely with robots. You can get advice from them, sign up for a mobile phone contract, and then leave the store, amazed and a little freaked out at what just happened.
  5. Do you like putting together flat-packed furniture? Do you like gardening? Then this is for you: a two-story farm that can produce up to six tons of food in a year.
