Samsung  announced today that it will showcase at CES 2016 its new Creative Lab (C-Lab) projects – WELT – a smart wearable healthcare belt, rink – a hand-motion controller for mobile VR devices and TipTalk – a new user experience (UX) that enables people to listen to the sound from their smart devices, transmitted through their own body.

WELT is a smart wearable healthcare belt that looks like a normal belt, thus offering consumers a more discreet way of using smart sensor technology to monitor their health. WELT is capable of recording the user’s waist size, eating habitsand the number of steps taken, as well as time spent sitting down.

It then sends this data to a specially-designed app for analysis, and the production of a range of personalized healthcare and weight management plans.

rink is an advanced hand-motion controller for mobile VR devices which offers a more intuitive and nuanced way to interact with the virtual world. The ability to intuitively control the game or content just by using their hands provides consumers with a much deeper level of mobile VR immersion.

Finally, TipTalk is a new UX that enables people to listen to the sound from their smart devices, such as the Samsung Gear S2, without headsets or earphones, simply by touching their finger to their ear. This enhances the clarity of calls, enabling them to be taken in public, even in noise-sensitive or loud environments, such as a concert hall or building site – without the risk of being overheard.

Shaped like a watch strap, ‘TipTalk’ can be added to watches – analog or smart – and sync with smartphones, enabling Text-to-Speech (TTS) functionality.
