predictions for wearables

Does anyone have a bold prediction for how wearables will do? What about a not-so-bold prediction? I'm just curious to hear whether or not the community sees the same kind of traction tha some in the industry are prediction.

Personally, I think the future of wearables is going to be much less bold and obvious than what many of these earlier things are. We are going to be covered in tech and it won't even be obvious to the casual observer.

The smaller thform factor the more likely these devices are to fly under the radar, as it were.

I can imagine a point in time where our wearables are embedded in the fabrics themselves, or possibly hidden in accessories instead of flaunted like google glass or fitbit.

I'm looking forward to that time when wearables are embedded in the fabric, like the Move concept fabric. Wearing a watch or wristband is unappealing to many, and wearing glasses even less appealing.

for smart glasses? Does this pass your reality test? It dramatically fails mine..

This is very good news for the electronics industry. I am sure sales of Wearable devices will definitely show significant increase in coming years. Products like Google glass and smartwatches will become popular among end users.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
