Wearable Technology is a new kid on the horizon who is ready to jump into contention. This technology can be described as on you around you inside you 24/7. Everyone is placing their bets on this futuristic genre of devices. Smartwatches, clever wrist bands, computers built into spectacles are some of the examples of Wearable Technology.
We already know about Google Glass which is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). This technology will only get hotter with Intel entering into this domain with “Edison”, a SD card size chip with Quark processor and integrated WiFi, Bluetooth. Not just Intel, Samsung and Apple are also gearing up to move the Wearable Technology market further.
I believe design is going to an important factor when it comes to the success of wearable technology in the future. The technology inside these devices is moving ahead while the design side stagnates. Gadgets continue to shrink in size and adapt to free up our hands, making it more convenient than ever. But as of now designs still lacks innovation. Google Glass and Innovega iOptik is an effective portrayal of how wearable technology can change computing and transgress the predefined boundaries.
Wearables is a broad and fast-growing category that, as the name implies, includes any small piece of technology that can be worn. Research firm ABI estimates the wearables market will hit $6 billion by 2018. In the next five years we will witness the rapid development and mainstream acceptance of wearable technology.
