Wrist-watches are sooooo last Century.

I rarely see a young person wearing a wrist-watch any more.  Soon they'll be perplexed by the wrist-watch joke in Laurel and Hardy's The Flying Deuces (1939).

Will this give an opprtunity for more and more hardware makers to start entering into this market with cheaper and yet cosmetic gadgets.

That's because they don't have a holographic watch like this one

I rarely see a young person wearing a pager anymore -- and your point would be? LOL

When I saw the photo of the two models looking intently at strange 20th Century devices wrapped around their wrists, I thought it might be more strategic for QuickLogic to target 21st Century applications.  What's next, using a disco ball to mount a whole-room scanner?

I think so -- I think if we look just a few years into the future we will be amazed at the variety of wearable electronics products that are available.

You want to wear a Dick Tracy gadget? Fine with me. But, I'm not putting an oscilloscope on my wrist.

That's because they use their phones as watches.

I never liked wearing a watch. My wife boiught be one as an engagement gift. I wore it for about a year, then put it away forever. That was long before I had a phone. If you don;t carry a timekeeper, you develop an acute sense of time. Plus, I had a clock in my car and since I was usually driving when time mattered, I had a timekeeper then.

Someone is going to develop one of those and make a lot more money than you.
