LIVING IN DIGITAL TIMES

Your Body is the New Habitat for Technology

You are what you wear.” 84 million wearables were sold in 2015, and the forecast is for 3-fold growth to 245 million by 2019. That’s a lot of high tech body language. And it’s worth exploring. Big time.

Why? Your employees will come to work with their wearable ID tag. Your doctor will prescribe a wearable communicator to track your health. Perhaps you’ll learn about your new car via a VR experience. Soon you’ll be withdrawing your money with a swipe of your ring. Whether you’re checking the calendar gazing at your wrist, or notifying a friend to bail you out of a bad date, wearables are here.
