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

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.
