FeliCa a subsidiary of Sony, is being prepared for use in smartwatches and other wearables. Sony is looking to take part in a whole new level of wearable tech, with the creation of a chip that could allow smartwatches and other devices of this nature to be capable of contactless mobile payments.
Apple has secured a patent for a smartwatch from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (No. 8,787,006)

The High-tech job training being launched by the White House this week will include veteran-specific programs and placement efforts, Vice President Joe Biden told the Veterans of Foreign Wars annual convention on Monday.
Details of the technology training are scheduled to be made public today. Biden said that part of the push will be to target communities with high veterans unemployment rates, and to rapidly retrain them in high-demand programming languages and technology trades.
Last year, scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore developed a creepy-crawly device inspired by the maggot that zaps tumours with electricity and sucks up the debris.
The finger-like prototype has multiple joints allowing it to move in several directions. The project was funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
Scientists in Singapore created a tiny robot which can access a person’s stomach via the throat to cut up tumors using miniature claws.One robotic arm holds the tumour while the other slices away.
Engineers across the globe are racing to design the lightest, most autonomous robotic exoskeleton, not only to restore movement to disabled people but also to boost the strength and endurance of those who carry heavy cargo or walk very far, like soldiers or rescue workers.
Strapped to the lower body, such devices are powered by motors that take some of the strain off the muscles — similar to the brain-controlled suit that helped a paraplegic kick a football at the World Cup opening ceremony.
Several prototypes have been developed, but many battle to meet the key challenge of compact, long-lasting, carry-on power supply.
