What didn’t work for Google might work for Apple. Wearables are coming. Jeffrey Mincey explains how Watch is only the beginning.
Watch technology already is small, compact, unobtrusive, but not yet standalone. As the technology matures, it will gain more functionality, and one of the benefits will be a standalone Watch, not tethered to the iPhone, but tethered to the cloud like everything else. As the tech grows more capable, it also grows smaller in size, and the next big thing will be the augmented reality that Apple brings to an ordinary pair of glasses, with information displayed on the lenses, but controlled with eye movements and voice commands, via Siri.
Is such a vision of the future possible?
Look back 10 years to see the changes made in modern mobile technology, then extrapolate those changes over the next 10 years. Goodbye, iPhone. Hello, wearable tech.
