In the many exploding genres of expotentially developing technology,wearable computing will become the next iteration of the user interface.Next generation materials will over time allow the molding and integration of the touch display to ourselves.The gap between human and machine growing incrementally smaller. Even though we are in the Wright Brothers stage of things,this fall should see the first flight of smartwatch devices.Apple,Google,Microsoft,Samsung and a Kickstarter/Indigogo startups will be the initial players.
I am excited.The Internet of Things slowly becomes a reality.Paradigm Shift.
