A glimpse of things to come...

At TED, Pattie Maes & Pranav Mistry unveiled next generation wearable technology.




This can revolutionalize our personal (shopping, socializing) and professional (network, problem solving) life by meshing the information that was accessible only through a PC/handheld so far, in our daily interactions.

How would you use this platform?

  1. Pretty cool idea indeed..
    I guess the concept is somewhat related to 'social tagging' and and approach is to extend it with visual motion sensors. Looks cool, but I would prefer to wait and see if it can be accepted as a commercial product.

    Related topic - checkout 'SekaiCamera' an iphone application developed by tonchidot (www.tonchidot.com).

    The key idea here is to use the iPhone as a mobile information terminal, linking the real world with tags generated by Sekai Camera users, Tonchidot itself, and information scraped from other web services. Users walk around town looking at the iPhone’s display to get information on their surroundings. If you walk through a mall, for example, Sekai Camera tags will show you where you can find something to eat, additional information about a certain product tagged before, or how many are calories in a chocolate bar.
