Valve: How I Got Here,What It’s Like, and What I’m Doinghttp://blogs.valvesoftware.com/abrash/valve-how-i-got-here-what-its-like- and-what-im-doing-2/
By “wearable computing” I mean mobilecomputing where both computer-generatedgraphics and the real world are seamlesslyoverlaid in your view; there is no separatedisplay that you hold in your hands (thinkTerminator vision). The underlying trend aswe’ve gone from desktops through laptopsand notebooks to tablets is one of havingcomputing available in more places, more ofthe time.
The logical endpoint is computingeverywhere, all the time – that is, wearablecomputing – and I have no doubt that 20years from now that will be standard,probably through glasses or contacts, but forall I know through some kind of more directneural connection.
And I’m pretty conﬁdent that platform shiftwill happen a lot sooner than 20 years –almost certainly within 10, but quite likely aslittle as 3-5 because the key areas – input, 3-5,processing/power/size, and output – that needto evolve to enable wearable computing areshaping up nicely, although there’s a lot still tobe ﬁgured out.
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.
We look at the present through arear-view mirror.We march backwards into the future. --Marshall McLuhan Photo by michaeltk - http://ﬂic.kr/p/9UCyhm
