A short story about fall detection in the new Apple Watch: Over a year ago, my mother -in-law suffered a fall and lost part of her memory. We don’t know how she fell or what she did over the 3 days that she was alone, just that her back was covered in bruises and she had a fractured skull. She’s recovered, but lost much of her sense of smell and taste. It could have been much, much worse. Fall detection could have ensured that she got immediate help. This feature will save lives.
This is a pretty incredible AR demo. https://twitter.com/laanlabs/status/1037739442650243072
Apple Watch aside, is “mobile devices are constrained” still a worthwhile consideration? The latest-generation iPhones are basically small laptops, performance-wise. Designing a system from the start to use less memory on phones sure seems like a premature optimization. Unless you know you’re going to be using hundreds of megabytes of data, maybe just try to describe your data clearly?
