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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
