Well, future is always scary as it is unknown. Technology advancements are mix bags of good and bad as evident from the past. While we are always comfortable with the present, we always have to strive for better. I donot know whether wearables will bring a revolution in the future but this is forsure a buzzword.

I agree as well. And the impression that government agencies appear to go off and overstep their bounds with abandon, concocting any excuse they can in the name of "national security," doesn't help.

It's a bit like the telemarketing phenomenon. People can and will go too far with a "good thing," given half a chance. Government is far from immune to this malady.

Yes, I do agree. The devices are the smaller risk compared to the data theft and loss of privacy may going to be the scariest in the future.

The concerns many have about drones and about products like Glass have much the same basis -- concerns about loss of privacy or being spied upon, whether by Big Brother or ordinary citizens.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
