Google Glass Is Not The Only Wearable: A Partial Long List



Now, last year I gave a presentation on Google Glass at the conference, but I want to tell folks here that Google Glass is not the only wearable. In fact, there are hundreds and hundreds of wearables on just basically every part of the body, every layer of clothing. There are smart shoes, that the left or the right will vibrate when they’re connected to GPS. They will give you a tour of the city, where someone who is blind can rely on them. There are of course, the smart watches. Last week, the Apple Watch has really raised those profiles. Of course, Android Wear watches have been out for a year or so. There are the bracelets, I wear the Jawbone activity monitor. Gloves, rings, how about this!
Now I’m not going to go through all of these, but I just want to say that about a month and a half ago, there were 2 major wearable technology conferences; one was in New York, one was in Los Angeles, and Google Glass was only a minority of all of those presentations. There’s even smart rings. The smart ring is connected to your smartphone and it vibrates, and it’s connected by Bluetooth. Basically if you have a very high priority person that you only … If you get an email and you want to answer that, they’ll vibrate. Some of them even have little LCD screens to show you a symbol.
