Fitness Tracker to VR – The Steady Amalgamation of Technology and Human Bodies

Fitness Tracker

Mobile phones are an inseparable part of our lives right now. It isn’t even a question to think that life without mobile phones can be any smoother. As far as fitness is concerned, it is an avenue that is the least explored. With Fitness Tracker Apps in place, the gap is closing rather convincingly.

The technology grew almost exponentially in the 20th century. It is almost bonkers that the 21st century brought so many things to the table. Wireless technology is one such aspect that has no alternative right now.

It is truly the ultimate form of information transfer. Albeit, the procedures, and the processes behind the same keep evolving. The game of mobile phones has crossed all boundaries, communities, languages, etc. 

Speaking of what mobile phones and technology can do, the usage of these appliances to directly help human beings is unprecedented. The information age is not only making these things work but be a part of our bodies itself.

Fitness Tracker – In A Nutshell

As we can see, one of the most fascinating pieces of equipment that we are using nowadays is a Fitness Tracker. These Fitness Trackers help in quite a few things that a normal stopwatch or track length wouldn’t, in a matter of moments.

These trackers are connected to any mobile with the help of a Fitness Tracker App. These apps are a consequence of meticulous and fine mobile apps development. There are multiple sensors in these fitness trackers that help you calculate and keep track of everything:

1. Accelerometer/Gyroscope: An accelerometer is a sensor that specifically detects movements. The number of steps calculated is just a way to get it done through an accelerometer.

2. Heart Rate Monitor: As the name itself suggests, a heart rate monitor does its job pretty effectively, e.g. Optical Heart Rate Monitors.

3. Barometer/Altimeter: Revisiting our Physics classes, barometers help to detect pressure. In this case, change in altitude leads to a reduction in air pressure. Extremely helpful for people who are trekking.

4. GLONASS/GPS: Accelerometers do it, on the whole, whereas a GPS gets it done precisely. All the steps calculated and the distance measured is easy when GPS is also considered.

Now, these apps are surely a part of our body. Maybe not ingrained within our systems, but the future seems rather optimistic. The case of VR or Virtual Reality is also the same. The example of Google Lens can also be considered.

The last stage of this puzzle is surely the mapping of the human brain. If that is possible, the entirety of our consciousness will be lingering somewhere on a server on the internet. Neuralink is one attempt to get that done rather easily.

With the exponential rise of technology, we will be seeing something even more fascinating, maybe even complete cyborgs, who knows?!
