Ziba Panel Series: Wearables via ElectricFoxy:
In the months since the introduction of the Nike FuelBand and Google Glass, the global design and business community have exploded with speculation on the potential of embedded computing. But they’ve left many questions unanswered: How will wearable technology fit into our daily lives? Is it a passing trend, or the future of computing? Will these kinds of devices bring people closer together, or add to the distractions that battle for our attention? What’s clear is that computers will radically transform over the next five years, from devices we carry to integrated parts of our outfits and bodies, that we use almost without thinking. It’s a shift that will transform markets, and challenge our definition of beauty. In April of 2013, Ziba invited three experience voices in the wearables field to try to find some answers.
