Ask anybody what personal technology will look like 10 years from now, and you’ll probably get a wrong answer. A decade ago, almost nobody could predict that more than a million people would buy a watch that not only tells the time, but reads your text messages, checks the weather and tracks your workouts, too. But that’s exactly what happened.
The role technology plays in our lives is rapidly growing, as we become increasingly dependent on it and less willing to separate ourselves from it. The rise of wearable technology, from fitness trackers and the Apple Watch to Google Glass and Microsoft’s HoloLens, has been fueled by technology’s tendency to get faster and smaller at the same time. If we can be sure of anything, it’s that the future means we’ll be wearing our technology on the outside, and, perhaps one day, on the inside, too.
Now what does Wearable technology mean to a layman.
It is as simple as Electronics that can be worn on the body, either as an accessory or as part of material used in clothing.
One of the major features of wearable technology is its ability to connect to the Internet, enabling data to be exchanged between a network and the device.
It can be your tshirt which has a color changing system which works on your mood or on the condition of the material, red for wet and brown for dirty or your jewelry which lets you quickly make calls.
Nowadays, people are so heavily dependent on one or more forms of technology that they wouldn’t mind more gadgets that they can wear on their body to stay connected to all their other devices.
The product market is slowly getting more and more products which are wearable technology devices but the only issue might be that they are a little costly on an average person’s pocket. Oops!
The scope and wide development area for this kind of technology is so vast that more and more companies are inventing devices that can be worn on a daily basis , but the more devices a person wears the more dependent they get on technology which still has not leaped majorly when it comes to the battery point.
Well, with the current development in technology which is quite commendable andrangesfrom sunglasses that let you take a pictureto bracelets that monitor your health closely , one can only hope that the humans dont become partial robots in the next decade or so. Here’s hoping!
