What do you think about all this wearable technology?
First let me say… I remember when the first cell phone came out.. OMG looking back on those what MONSTERS they were… Who remembers that?
I think it all began with headgear and headpieces operators used to wear. Remember those? Do they still make them? I wore them when I was a financial planner WAAAAAAY back in the day! LOL!
But fast forwarding now to today’s times… and how it kinda evolved…
Then came the bluetooth. I’ve never been a huge fan. I donno if it’s because I’m a tactile person? And need to feel like I’m holding or touching something? (It took me FOREVER to part with my Blackberry simply because I HAD to touch those keys…. the thought of a flat screen and not being to feel the keys totally stressed me out. Isn’t that CRAZY? Nonetheless, I adjusted.)
Then came the fit bands from Nike and several other companies. My daughter had one and used it for a while. eh. Ok.
And then came the Samsung Gear, which, seeing the commercials for those TOTALLY got me BEYOND excited, because it took me back to my childhood, when the IDEA of this kinda technology seemed like something from The Jetsons. Am I right?
I actually own Google Glass. In fact, just last week I did a segment on a local show, Oklahoma Live, sharing what I thought about them…. take a look to see that…
And here is what we see coming on the horizon…
What do you think? Would you sport any of these as part of your “accessories”? Kinda cool? Kinda interesting? Kinda fun? Or nah?
