  2. 2. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Timeline Apple Ipod 2001 Nike FuelBand Feb 2012 Sony Walkman 1979-2010 Samsung Galaxy Gear 2013 Google Google Glasss 2013 Pebble Pebble Watch 2013 Casio DataBank 1983 IBM IBM Simon 1994 Psion Organizer II 1984 3Com Palm Pilot 1996 Apple Iphone 2007 Windows Andriod 2008 Google Google Voice 2010 Blackberry 8800 2006
  3. 3. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Wearable Technology will become the next big trend to access the digital world. While technology rapidly advances yet consumer response is wary, companies must adjust their products to fit the grow- ing demand for wearable devices that offer a subtle utility.
  4. 4. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Information Age Code: Informed 57 percent of fitness band buyers said the ability to self-monitor was a major factor for purchasing wearable technology Nielsen Connected Life Report 2014 “Beyond measuring calories burned or steps taken, wearable tech- nology can already provide persistent monitoring of a patient’s vitals or fetal and maternal heart rates, gauge the severity of sleep apnea, or vibrate when slouching is detected.” Inc. Com
  5. 5. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Intimate Computing Multiple devices will be connected together on our bodies wirelessly by a smartphone, thus creating a physical computing fabric, and an intimate user experience “As the early experiments have shown, these intimate machines have to be a lot more human than, say, Google Glass ... One of the main reasons why we have not seen any [wearable] devic- es become popular on the scale of the iPod or iPhone is because they lack that fashionability.” -Gigaom.com Code: Subtlety In a recent study, 62 percent of respondents said they wish wearables came in forms besides wrist bands and watches, and 53 percent wanted wearable devices that look more like jewelry. -Nielsen Connected Life Report 2014
  6. 6. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Privacy With recent news stories and consumers storing more private information on the internet, the fear of theft is becoming a major public concern, not only financial but informational from the companies they have accounts with. Code: Safety “The cyber threat to our nation is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face.” President Barack Obama The Wall Street Journal “Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and other tech firms are taking a stand against data requests from government agencies. The companies are hoping to pro- vide more transparency by disclosing such requests from law enforcement and other government entities” The Washington Post Issues of privacy and security are a growing concern for consumers and man- ufacturers as we progress towards the “internet of things” Stephen Ollerenshaw Technology Law Alliance
  7. 7. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client BioZen United States Department of Defense Application developed by United States Department of Defense “The system [transmits] real-time data from the heart, respiration, skin responses, temperature, blood chemistry, and brain waves ... from wearable sensors to a smartphone.” -CNBC Code: Specialization Devices like BioZen are taking Technology we’ve already integrated and adding new features to it. In these cases, the tranferance to a new technology is more streamlined as their new technology is being accessed and functioned the same as the old.
  8. 8. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client The Dash Headphones by Bragi “They’ll sit subtly in your ear, unlike other wearable headgear such as Google Glass.” Mashable.com Codes: Functional Subtlety Measures heartrate, speed, body temperature, step numbers, and calories burned without being visually obstructive. Leading Too / From - Bragi takes the classic technology of headphones and gives them additional benefit and use, combining the everyday act of music and the technology to monitor fitness.
  9. 9. History Trend Forces Sourcing Subculture Hypothesis The Market Our Client Korea Company LG is joining the wearable tech market with it’s new G watch, that connects seamlessly with your andriod phone and gives a preview ver- sion of phone activity including the ability to respond, read and surf the con- tents of your phone from your wrist. The G Watch is an example how, companies with less manufactoring power, are tweaking their designs and offerings to enter the wearable tech market. The G Watch - LG Codes: Convinience The LG G watch, due for release at an undisclosed date this summer, looks more like existing wearables like the Pebble Watch and Samsung Gear 2 than its Android Wear sibling, the Moto 360.
