  30. 30. By “wearable computing” I mean mobile computing whereboth computer-generated graphics and the real world areseamlessly overlaid in your view; there is no separate displaythat you hold in your hands (think Terminator vision). Theunderlying trend as we’ve gone from desktops throughlaptops and notebooks to tablets is one of having computingavailable in more places, more of the time.
  31. 31. The logical endpoint is computing everywhere, all the time– that is, wearable computing – and I have no doubt that 20years from now that will be standard, probably throughglasses or contacts, but for all I know through some kind ofmore direct neural connection.
  32. 32. And I’m pretty confident that platform shift will happen alot sooner than 20 years – almost certainly within 10, butquite likely as little as 3-5, because the key areas – input, 3-5processing/power/size, and output – that need to evolve toenable wearable computing are shaping up nicely, althoughthere’s a lot still to be figured out.

  40. 40. Douglas Adams said...1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
