…so let’s get it on:
Will 2014 be remembered as the year wearable computing took off?
Gadgets that you snap, buckle or fasten to your body are already marketed to fitness freaks obsessed with tracking every possible metric their bodies produce. There are countless smartwatches for tech nerds who’d rather glance at their wrists to check messages than reach for their smartphones. And thousands of people are already seeing the world differently with the help of the Internet-connected eyewear, Google Glass.
Several companies are expected to unveil wearable devices that are easier to use, extend battery life, and tap into the power of gestures, social networks and cloud computing.
Research firm IHS says the global wearables market…could top $30 billion in 2018, up from nearly $10 billion at the end of 2013.
There…feel better now?
