Wearing Your Computer on Your Sleeve

Wearing Your Computer on Your Sleeve
 

Technology often has a way of fixing the problems it creates. Here’s one that needs solving.

The invention of the smartphone has created a world where millions of people stroll through life constantly staring into a mobile device, like Narcissus at the edge of a pond.

I know. I’m one of them.

People are not going to put these devices down in the near future. Realistically, we will become only more absorbed by the Screen. Technology will have to solve this problem. It will do so by creating wearable computers.

Wearable computing is a broad term. Technically, a fancy electronic watch is a wearable computer. But the ultimate version of this technology is a screen that would somehow augment our vision with information and media.

Over the last year, Apple and Google have secretly begun working on projects that will become wearable computers. Their main goal: to sell more smartphones.

In Google’s secret Google X labs, researchers are working on peripherals that — when attached to your clothing or body — would communicate information back to an Android smartphone.

Apple has also experimented with prototype products that could relay information back to the iPhone. These conceptual products could also display information on other Apple devices, like an iPod, which Apple is already encouraging us to wear on our wrists by selling Nanos with watch faces.

As a result, the smartphone is going to be the hub for our information sharing and gathering. Think of it as a force field that will engulf us wherever we are, transmitting power and Internet access to sensors and screens that are tacked to our clothing.

Fashion will most likely be one of the first disruptions. Imagine teenagers being able to design their own virtual clothing that others wearing heads-up displays can see.

Parents, teachers and friends could be shown entirely different outfits. For example, I could look like a giant pink cat in a bustier to my friends, but my boss would see me in a fancy Italian suit.

At least, I hope that’s what he would see.

The alternative, I’m afraid, might call for a technological solution of its own.

    Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and net and this is actually irritating. A good website with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thanks for keeping this web site, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

    Sorry, but I have to firmly disagree with this posting. Of course, I thoroughly grasp that in fact we all have our separate way of thinking.

    • admin12-28-11

      But now days technology have come to our life and every body has wearable computer such as mp3 player , cell phone or tablet and laptop 🙂

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for novices. May just you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
