The holiday season is in full swing now, and I’ll bet a lot of people out there will be getting some form of wearable device as a gift.
Personally, I’d like to see more fashion innovation, e.g. intelligent clothing. I’m not a fan of encumbrances, but since clothes aren’t optional, they might as well be smart.
As wearables gain momentum, I find myself increasingly frustrated because there are so many options, so many form factors and price points, and no clear leader where I feel comfortable investing time, money and development effort.
And that’s without even looking at the technical aspects of each device, sensors, SDKs and/or APIs, openness of data, associated ecosystems.
What a hot mess, but hey, it’s exciting too.
Bonus, Misha’s post includes an interview with our very own Anthony (@anthonyslai) about his adventures as a Google Glass Explorer. Noel (@noelportugal) is now in that club too, so expect more Glass content soon, e.g. I heard those two mad scientists got the Glass working to control the robotic arm.
Stay tuned, and as always, find the comments.
