Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 2012 launches Today

The Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 2012 is launching today. From 24 July to 30 November, innovators from all over the world are invited to submit their products and prototypes for consideration. The title sponsor of this innovations award is Texas Instruments.

Wearable Technologies (WT) are technologies worn at or near the body. They measure data such as heart rate, lung capacity, blood glucose level or location based data, and transmit these directly to the doctor or selected recipients.

"It is the goal of the WT Innovation World Cup to give innovators around the world a platform to present their latest solutions in the exciting world of Wearable Technologies," says Christian Stammel, CEO of Wearable Technologies AG.

According to ABI Research, the market for sports and fitness devices worn at the body will grow by 90 million sold devices until 2017, which means a growth rate of 41 percent. The market for wearable, wireless medical devices is expected to grow even more. Until 2016, 100 million devices are estimated to be sold annually.

For the first time, Innovation World Cup participants can submit solutions using any wireless data transfer technology, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth technology, ZigBee or cellular to connect their wearable devices. Successful participants will win prizes and have the unique chance to communicate with potential partners and customers, increase their media exposure, and boost their business in the booming market of WT.

The Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 2012 will officially launch today at the Wearable Technologies Conference II 2012 in San Francisco. The Innovations Cup web site will launch at that time here .
