One question

Q: What are “wearables,” and what will they do?

A: [The mobile phone has] become part of our lives. Wearables are only the next step in our technological evolution, as they become just another extension of ourselves. My definition of wearable technology is simply any small item of apparel that utilizes intelligent electronics within it. These wearables will:

  • Provide more context—by measuring location, movement, orientation, temperature, altitude, and health stats like heartbeat, body temperature, or vision.
  • Allow direct access to micro-interactions at the right time and right place, combining rich content with corporate information/services.
  • Allow hands-free access instead of holding a device (phone/tablet).
