  5. 5. 71%Of 16-To-24-Year-Olds Want Wearable Tech http://www.forbes.com/sites/victorlipman/2014/09/22/71-of-16-24s-want-wearable-tech-why-dont-i-even-want-to-wear-a-watch/ #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 5
  6. 6. Defining ‘wearable tech’ • Wearable technology, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronics are clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies • The designs often incorporate practical functions and features, but may also have a purely critical or aesthetic agenda http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wearable_technology #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 6

  9. 9. Our customers tell us that they want the latest information at their finger-tips (or in this case wrist), so being able to send predefined notifications and updates in line with the user’s role and require-ments was our focus. This can improve processes like work-flow approval, invoicing, etc “ http://blogs.ifsworld.com/2014/05/putting-wearable-tech-in-the-business-context/ ” #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 9
  10. 10. Temperature test • 80% said wearable technology will be hugely beneficial to people in their daily lives. • 30% felt it will promote even more the divide between information haves and have-nots (or between those with money and those with not enough). • 50% thought that wearable technology is still years away from becoming mainstream • 70% were certain that privacy and information confidentiality will be a big worry as wearable technology becomes more common. No one mentioned ethics or ethical behaviours. http://www.nevillehobson.com/2014/07/09/way-ethics-prethics/ #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 10
  11. 11. Are we Too Complacent? #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 11
  12. 12. Imagine going to a meeting with people who do you not know. As you walk into the room, your smart watch triggers a sensor in the doorway, which now lets everyone in the room know you have arrived. As a portfolio about you flashes in front of their eyes, a quick introduction to each person in the room simultaneously scrolls inside your specially enabled eyeglasses. “ ” http://www.cmswire.com/cms/internet-of-things/a-vision-of-wearable-tech-in-the-workplace-026113.php #SMWLDN | #SMILELONDON 12
