  8. 8. Applications in Healthcare and Biometrics Image: Creative Commons “Quantified selfers” with an affinity for this kind of feedback; just by looking at the numbers, they are motivated to be more active.” “The Monitored Man” by Albert Sun, NewYork Times Images: Wikipedia Creative Commons

  10. 10. Applications for Police and Law Enforcement Image: Creative Commons “February 2012, public complaints against police officers plunged 88% compared with the previous 12 months. Officers' use of force fell by 60%.” Police Officers in Rialto California wore lapel video cameras as a pilot project. Image: Wikipedia Creative Commons
  11. 11. “The Google Glass Feature No One Is Talking About” Mark Hurst, Creative Good “Google Glass will live or die solely on the experience it creates for people.” “Today, finally, that future has arrived... the ability to record your life, store it, and share it – all with a simple voice command.” Anywhere you go in public – any store, any sidewalk, any bus or subway – you’re liable to be recorded: audio and video... stored permanently, and shared to the world.
  12. 12. Wearables... where are the early adopters? Athletics Medicine Tech journalists

  17. 17. Most likely. But if they don’t, something else will. So is the march of smaller, better, faster, shinier, MORE.
  18. 18. The speed of technological change is itself changing and accelerating. Our challenges today are tomorrow’s discoveries. We’ll wonder how we ever got along without it. ... and our grandchildren will teach us how to use it.
  19. 19. Wearables will succeed in our digitally-saturated culture when: they serve a vital function or purpose in our lives; they weave seamlessly into aesthetic lifestyle; must be better than any other device at its job; they come with an array of apps to allow a customizable user experience; they are fully networked into mobile communication hubs.
  20. 20. If wearables can fulfill those criteria, then I’m in.
