Re: Floome
That was my first thought also, this would be a valuable tool for enforcment officers. Also, in Washington State a judge will order an offender to rent a breathalizer and have it mounted on the cars column to disable the ability to start their car. I wonder if this breathalizer would be able to due the same. In addition the other unit is temperature sensitive, is this new breathalizer tempature- sensitive? Pam Salazar

First generation
In my opinion Apple Watch is more like iPad - it's a kind of "mature prototype" to test the market maturity and response to the new product. For me, I will keep my finger crossed and wait for its next generation instead of paying for it now.:-)

Re: PowerPurse and Go-Anywhere-Wheelchair
I guess the question then is how does a company prevent individuals for doing stupid things with their products?  For the most part I would think that a company selling a breathalyzer plug in for a cell phone would be unware of the user's BAC until they get sued because their product was part of some drinking game.   How does a tech company insulate themselves from those types of actions?

auto-selfie
Impressive innovations. But the Auto-selfie device kind of kills the purpose of a selfie in my opinion. The art of taking selfie is balanced on a line between being a formal photo and a photo which is too casual to be interesting. It involves testing different angles which flatter you and the person/thing involved.  It invites your own imagination to play a role. Having an auto-selfie machine do that takes away all the fun.

Re: Computerized products without the computer
@David: The only problem is that the number of gadgets we carry are increasing. People would at most carry a smartphone, a watch and a necklace. If this happens I can see traditional accesory companies merging with IT companies to extend their businesses.

Smart Doors
I really don't see the benefits of having a smartphone enabled door. You can install an array of sensors for half the price of the smart door which will detect your car and open the door for you. Having the ability to open your garage door from anywhere in the world seems like a nice idea, but really you would not even use this app/technology when you are away on vacation.

Re: Floome
@PedroGonzales: Probably yes. Most people would not be using that except parents and cops. This kind of technology has its own forms of abuses, however I don't think the percentage of abuse will overpower the percentage of use.

Re: Floome
I think all these devices are all great ideas.  I really liked the charger.  Too bad, they don't have it in smaller versions.  Would cops use the breathalizer when they stop people who are drinking under the influence?

Floome
According to the Floome's website you can reserve it for free. Even though I don't drink, I already reserved mine. I could give it to some of my friends, In any case, I wonder how many people who do drink will get it.

Re: PowerPurse and Go-Anywhere-Wheelchair
@SachinEE, your idea about a smartphone powered wheel chair may be nice. Eventually it'll be used in hospitals where nurses can monitor the patient on their PDA (or any other monitoring device) where the person bound to the wheelchair has went. They can also track the vitals of the person. IOT has a lot of uses in healthcare.
