The Future of Wearable Technology: Smaller, Cheaper, Faster, and Truly Personal Computing

The Future of Wearable Technology: Smaller, Cheaper, Faster, and Truly Personal Computing | Wearable Computing | Scoop.it

For the past few years, industry pundits have been predicting the death of the personal computer. I look at it a bit differently—the personal computer is not dying, but is becoming even more personal. It is now something you’re going to wear—in your clothing, jewelry, shoes, glasses, watches, and even on your skin.

Even Google Employees Are Giving Up On Google Glass

Even Google Employees Are Giving Up On Google Glass | Wearable Computing | Scoop.it
Google employees are not wearing Google Glass anymore.
JoyFoundry's insight:

Wired's Mat Honan says: 


"My Glass experiences have left me a little wary of wearables because I’m never sure where they’re welcome. I’m not wearing my $1,500 face computer on public transit where there’s a good chance it might be yanked from my face. I won’t wear it out to dinner, because it seems as rude as holding a phone in my hand during a meal. I won’t wear it to a bar. I won’t wear it to a movie. I can’t wear it to the playground or my kid’s school because sometimes it scares children."

Richard Platt's curator insight, November 22, 2014 10:44 PM

"If people like Honan and Google employees don't feel comfortable wearing Glass in public, then it's never going to become a normal thing. Those people need to wear them enough for the world to get used to Glass. If they're scared to wear them, then it remains a niche product."
