The early days of new industries are characterized by a high number of companies entering with new products and technologies. There were hundreds of automobile manufacturers in the early 20th century and dozens of computer manufacturers in the 1980s when the personal computing industry first took off.
With the emergence of a new industry around wearable devices and wearable computing, a similar pattern can be detected. Every week, new companies are started, new products are launched and new services offered. Keeping an up-to-date overview of this industry is difficult.
Vandrico, a R&D and consulting company in the wearables industry, has created an online database of wearable devices and technology. Not only does the database contain more than 100 devices, it seems that the database gets nearly daily updates as well.
