Overview
As we contemplate how to manage a tsunami
of data, wearable devices are rendering
technology invisible. Smaller, faster computers
and microchips, tracking and measuring
metrics in real-time are revolutionizing how we
connect with the world.
Fashion-forward designs, developed to
crunch and interpret the numbers faster than
we are able to collect them, are analyzing
biometrics through everything, from our
eyewear to our underwear.
The wearable computing market is
expected to hit $19 billion by 2018. And it’s
no surprise that our co-evolution with
technology is becoming the bridge
between mobile communication and the
Internet of Things.
Data’s ubiquity – whether push, pull or
ambient – can be harnessed for efficiency,
knowledge, and utility. This enables us to
reframe the least renewable of all elements,
time itself.
‹#›
The Internet of Everything and The Quantified Self
By 2020, analysts predict that we’ll be digitally connected to everything
around us. Microchips, sensors, and batteries are shifting devices from our
desks, out of our hands and pockets, onto our bodies.
The ongoing capture and analysis of data enhances our self-knowledge,
informing The Quantified Self, and drives The Internet of Everything, an
evolving digital ecosystem. In the future objects will receive data and respond
seamlessly …the refrigerator that delivers a glass of water based on your
hydration level; rooms that self-control their energy output based on who is in
them; locks that open as you approach, and smart slippers that detect a fall.
In this shifting paradigm of the observer and the observed, traditional industry
verticals, such as health telecommunications, automotive, and entertainment will
merge into cross-functional, user-centric innovations. 

Author Jeremy Rifkin describes this change as the powerful Third Industrial
Revolution. People, machines and every aspect of our work and social lives are
connected by big data, advanced analytics and predictive algorithms. If we stay
on track, we are headed towards economies powering smarter cities, efficient
business, streamlined manufacturing, and renewable energy sources. It began
with the Internet and continues with the promise of our wearable future, realized
by some of the following innovations.

Escape was once a good book or movie. But with the physical
boundaries fast-dissolving between reality and imagination, content is
delivered through head-mounted technologies, featuring 3D motion
sensors and enhanced audio in an immersive, interactive scenario. In
this environment, the wearer is the protagonist and able to create,
make, discover, build, and explore a borderless world.
Wearing Entertainment
Virtual Reality Revisited 
Oculus Rift: The redesigned virtual reality headset delivers
an immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience that has made
the technology more affordable for the world’s gamers. The
Rift uses a massive Field of View (FOV) of 110 degrees
versus the typical 110 degrees to give users a wraparound
experience. An ultra low latency function lets the action
track the user’s movements (instead of the other way
around). The lightweight platform is also being applied for
myriad other uses, such as virtual tourism, virtual patient
care, virtual training and simulation — virtually anything.

CONCLUSION
2015 will undoubtably be remembered as the “Year of the Wearable”. Innovators have
been working hard to develop an experience which captivates the hearts and minds of
consumers. The recent launch of Apple Watch® demonstrated a high level of excitement
and interest, and that consumers are willing to shell out big money so they, too, can wear
the future.
This is really the beginning of a most exciting time. Despite the numerous examples in this
paper, today’s wearables barely scratch the surface. There is so much more to come
since innovation has been increasing exponentially. Given advances in computing power
and miniaturization, there is no doubt that wearables will play an important role in helping
shape the future.
Right now, most wearables take the form of a watch or wrist band. It’s a simple form factor
which most people are comfortable with. It has been predicted the next generation of
wearables may be biometric film that could be attached to any number of items -- from
our skin, to our clothing to our jewelry. Although this may feel like the stuff of sci-fi, the
concepts are already in development. As wearables become more sophisticated, the
technology itself may recede as the utility may increase.
Although much attention has been focused on the technology, wearables will help
consumers collect reams of data about themselves and their daily lives. This data will
grow exponentially and they will be able to gather, analyze and customize all aspects of
many experiences. This will lead to an über level of customization across the entire
spectrum, from individualized medical treatments to individualized fitness routines to
individualized diets. Deep customization, tailored to even more subtle nuances.
While thinking about the future of wearables, there are several final points worth making.
The first is around the relationship between our smartphones and wearables. Our current
model has the wearable tethered to a smartphone or smart device. There is much debate
about this relationship. Will future wearables be tethered or untethered? That’s a hard one
to predict but research will likely follow those two discrete streams.
The second point is around the impact that wearable devices will have on our global
economy. As businesses shift to delivering customized experiences, how will wearables
transform the business model? Delivering customization will demand a heightened level
of empathy and insight in order to craft meaningful experiences that engage customers
and employees.
These are early days for wearable technology but the feeling that it will have a great
impact on our future is undeniable. Form factors and functionality may evolve over time,
but it is clear that wearables will end up weaving into the very fabric of our lives.

  • 3. ‹#› Overview As we contemplate how to manage a tsunami of data, wearable devices are rendering technology invisible. Smaller, faster computers and microchips, tracking and measuring metrics in real-time are revolutionizing how we connect with the world. Fashion-forward designs, developed to crunch and interpret the numbers faster than we are able to collect them, are analyzing biometrics through everything, from our eyewear to our underwear. The wearable computing market is expected to hit $19 billion by 2018. And it’s no surprise that our co-evolution with technology is becoming the bridge between mobile communication and the Internet of Things. Data’s ubiquity – whether push, pull or ambient – can be harnessed for efficiency, knowledge, and utility. This enables us to reframe the least renewable of all elements, time itself.
  • 4. ‹#› The Internet of Everything and The Quantified Self By 2020, analysts predict that we’ll be digitally connected to everything around us. Microchips, sensors, and batteries are shifting devices from our desks, out of our hands and pockets, onto our bodies. The ongoing capture and analysis of data enhances our self-knowledge, informing The Quantified Self, and drives The Internet of Everything, an evolving digital ecosystem. In the future objects will receive data and respond seamlessly …the refrigerator that delivers a glass of water based on your hydration level; rooms that self-control their energy output based on who is in them; locks that open as you approach, and smart slippers that detect a fall. In this shifting paradigm of the observer and the observed, traditional industry verticals, such as health telecommunications, automotive, and entertainment will merge into cross-functional, user-centric innovations. 
 Author Jeremy Rifkin describes this change as the powerful Third Industrial Revolution. People, machines and every aspect of our work and social lives are connected by big data, advanced analytics and predictive algorithms. If we stay on track, we are headed towards economies powering smarter cities, efficient business, streamlined manufacturing, and renewable energy sources. It began with the Internet and continues with the promise of our wearable future, realized by some of the following innovations. Overview Cont’d

  • 55. CONCLUSION 2015 will undoubtably be remembered as the “Year of the Wearable”. Innovators have been working hard to develop an experience which captivates the hearts and minds of consumers. The recent launch of Apple Watch® demonstrated a high level of excitement and interest, and that consumers are willing to shell out big money so they, too, can wear the future. This is really the beginning of a most exciting time. Despite the numerous examples in this paper, today’s wearables barely scratch the surface. There is so much more to come since innovation has been increasing exponentially. Given advances in computing power and miniaturization, there is no doubt that wearables will play an important role in helping shape the future. Right now, most wearables take the form of a watch or wrist band. It’s a simple form factor which most people are comfortable with. It has been predicted the next generation of wearables may be biometric film that could be attached to any number of items -- from our skin, to our clothing to our jewelry. Although this may feel like the stuff of sci-fi, the concepts are already in development. As wearables become more sophisticated, the technology itself may recede as the utility may increase. Although much attention has been focused on the technology, wearables will help consumers collect reams of data about themselves and their daily lives. This data will grow exponentially and they will be able to gather, analyze and customize all aspects of many experiences. This will lead to an über level of customization across the entire spectrum, from individualized medical treatments to individualized fitness routines to individualized diets. Deep customization, tailored to even more subtle nuances. While thinking about the future of wearables, there are several final points worth making. The first is around the relationship between our smartphones and wearables. Our current model has the wearable tethered to a smartphone or smart device. There is much debate about this relationship. Will future wearables be tethered or untethered? That’s a hard one to predict but research will likely follow those two discrete streams. The second point is around the impact that wearable devices will have on our global economy. As businesses shift to delivering customized experiences, how will wearables transform the business model? Delivering customization will demand a heightened level of empathy and insight in order to craft meaningful experiences that engage customers and employees. These are early days for wearable technology but the feeling that it will have a great impact on our future is undeniable. Form factors and functionality may evolve over time, but it is clear that wearables will end up weaving into the very fabric of our lives. 55
